Fabulous Coastlines

Imagine being surrounded by the turquoise blue of the sky and sea as warm as bath water; the waters around Costa Rica are perfect for snorkelling among darting, jewel-coloured fishes.

Mexico, meanwhile, is heaven on earth for beach lovers so head to Cancun for lazy days and beach parties by night. Along the Pacific coast, you will find shallow bays, golden sands and striking cliffs at beautiful spots like Acapulco.

However, on the Atlantic side, the most famous beach in the world is arguably Brazil's Copacabana, a magnificent, scalloped beach watched over by the statue of Christ the Redeemer.
