No, I didn’t swim all the way through Central America, that’s just silly.  I don’t even like swimming that much, but when you travel, you just can’t help it but want to dive right in.  It may be freezing, which a lot of it was, but it was still exciting.  I spent time in all of these bodies of water, minus two of them, because I was usually zipping through on a boat, crawling across on a ferry, or it just didn’t look the most appealing (that’s you Lake Nicaragua.)  Not only did I do swimming in bodies of water, but I even swam in a cave in Belize.  There wasn’t tons of swimming, but it definitely counts!  So, I present to you, my swimming adventures in Central America.V2_DSCF3741
