Hi James, Katrina from WorldNomads.com here.
What exactly do you want to insure? and how much is this single item worth?
Not sure if you noticed: we provide travel insurance, which will cover trips to Central America. For some plans, you can also insure high value single items to increase the coverage.
I am going to make the assumption you are a UK resident ( the travel insurance you can buy through us changes depending on your country of residence, not where you are going) - if so, then the plan we offer gives you the chance to increase your single items limit to GBP £400 and you can add up to 10 items up to GBP £1,250.
You can check it out here to see if it's going to suite your trip: http://www.worldnomads.com/travel-insurance/prices-and-benefits-country.aspx?Country=GBR
If you'd like to ask us specific questions about travel insurance - please do get in touch with our customer services team: http://worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx or send me a direct message through Ask A Nomad.

Hey Katrina thanks for a quick response. The items are worth £600 and £1600, do you know of any insurers which will cover these? I checked out your policy but as you've mentioned it seems I can only cover single items up to a value of £400?
Also yeah I'm a uk resident :) over 5 years ago
I've spent a lot of time in South and Central America and I'd say; if it's worth a lot, just don't bring it. It's not worth bringing a super fancy camera or iPad. Things happen all the time there and it's better to just enjoy without worrying. Go simple! (: over 5 years ago
