Hi, this is the blog of my travels of the length of Central America between January and July 2008. At the start the plan was to take in the southern parts of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, maybe Panama and maybe even Colombia if I got that far. Basically all I knew for sure was that I would land in Mexico City on January 13th with accom booked for 4 nights there - the plan for the rest was... ummm... what plan?!
But what I learnt was I got a lot more out of my experience in each country if I spent a bit more time in each, rather than just trying to make it to as many countries as possible. So I only ended up making it to Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. I think the first law of longer-term travel is that you can have more fun by spending more time in fewer countries rather than by spending less time in more countries...
