Central America has always attracted intrepid visitors in search of unfiltered natural beauty. Now, a set of top-tier, and often eco-friendly resorts is reinventing the region as a world-class beach destination, complete with unspoiled coastlines, coral reefs, and corduroy waves.

When to Visit: The region is at its best during the dry season (also peak season), which is usually from December to May, though it varies depending on the exact location. (All prices quoted here are for peak season.) The rest of the year, prices fall, but so does the rain. Solitude seekers may want to avoid the holiday season (mid-December through February), when some of these Central American beaches are crowded with locals.
