I thought I’d be able to backpack through Central America in two months – in reality, it took three and a half months, and the alcoholic drinks in Central America was one of the reasons why.
Central America is full of islands and beaches and beautiful cities that American frequently vacation to, and what do we do on vacation? We drink. So if you’re going to Central America you should know about all of the must-try alcoholic drinks in Central America.
Even though Central America isn’t known for its wine, how Italy is, or for its beer, how Germany is, they’re still home to tons of original beers, wines, and spirits.
Why not try something new while you’re on vacation in another country? You can always grab a Bud Light when you get back but how many times can you have huge piles of chili powder thrown in your beer? Sounds gross, right? Ya, it was pretty bad but it was an experience and I’m glad I tried it…then tried even harder to finish it.
Here’s a list of the most popular alcoholic drinks in Central America.
P.S. I’ve never heard of any problems of people getting sick or dying from the alcohol in Central America as they did in the Dominican Republic.
I'm ashamed to say that I think I drank more Flor de Caña than water when I was in Nicaragua. At only about $7 for a full 750ml bottle of high-quality rum, how can you go wrong?
As you can see from the photo, the Flor de Caña headquarters is located in Nicaragua and you're allowed to take tours of it! I recommend it if you have the time.
