Mesoamerica, which stretches from the moist forests of Southern Mexico to the southeast of Panama, is the world’s third-largest biodiversity hotspot.

It is also the best-studied and most scientifically productive region in tropical ecology. Countries like Belize and Costa Rica have set aside a considerable amount of their land for study and conservation, which means serious wildlife and nature travel opportunities abound.
