There are five resorts offering overwater bungalows in Central America, and all of them are in the Caribbean side. The most expensive, which is in Belize, is a private island that features a single luxury overwater suite that includes its own servants. The others are much cheaper and more basic, in addition to an all-inclusive resort in Cuba that has overwater rooms in groups of four.
