Palm Trees and Ocean Breeze

Palm trees just having something calming about them.  It might be the gentle swish of the leaves in the breeze or the sparseness of leaves at the bottom, or maybe it's both, who knows.  They're just one of those things that everyone imagines when they hear the word "vacation."  I saw plenty in Central America…

A Panoramic View of Central America

During my time in Central America, I saw some pretty stellar views of mountains, lakes, beaches, and jungle.  It's hard to really capture it all, but I tried my best.  There isn't much to say about these as the views speak for themselves. San Pedro, Guatemala San Pedro, Guatemala Playa Maderas, Nicaragua   Tulum, Mexico…

Swimming Through Central America

It's hard to avoid swimming when you travel, especially somewhere with so many opportunities, like Central America.  With everything from emerald pools to white sand beaches, it's hard to say no, even if like me, you don't enjoy water activities that much.

Semuc Champey In Guatemala: A Not So Hidden Paradise

Guatemala was my favorite country I visited, by far.  It had everything.  There was beach (that I didn't go to,) ruins, and volcanos.  It had the best stuff to buy and it was all cheap, too.  And then there was Semuch Champey.  This is reason enough to go there. Semuc…

This trek takes about three days with good planning…

What I Learned After One Month In Nicaragua

After almost two months gone, I just keep learning new things. Some about myself, and some about wherever I am. Some are more exciting than others as well. Don't always listen to other people. All the rumors for the trip to the Corn Islands were tales of nightmares. So, of course, looking for an adventure…

A Few More Things I’ve Learned in Central America

As the days go by, I learn more and more. Some interesting, some not. I recently learned I love Guatemala. It has everything to offer, well maybe not beaches, but it has almost everything: volcanos, Semuc Chanpey, coffee, lakes, mountains, everything. Coffee in Guatemala is delicious. I had two coffees today. That good. There are…

Central America: My first solo trip!

This is it, my first solo trip!  While it is against most people’s wishes, that I’ve told so far, I am doing it.  I will be spending an undetermined amount of time, on my own, in Central America starting January Seventh.  There is very little plan so far, other than the initial destination of Cancun,…
