Spanning from the Arctic Circle in the northern-most part of Canada to tropical rainforests and volcanoes in Costa Rica and Guatemala, there's a broad array of landscapes to be discovered in North and Central America, and a real melting-pot of cultures and histories, from Inuits and French-speaking cities in Canada, the immigrant heritage of the United States of America, and the Aztec, Mayan and Spanish colonial cultural influences to be found in the Central American countries of Mexico, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. The countries that make up North and Central America are so astoundingly mixed and different, they just have to be explored!

USA
