Honduras – Copan

We decided to give Tikal a miss as some travellers we met en-route said it was a bit like a theme park and instead headed for Copan in Honduras. This was good for us as ultimately we were heading for Roatan via San Pedro Sula. After paying our $3 entrance visa fee we crossed the [...]

Panama

Panama is obviously famous for its canal but is a lovely green country with beautiful beaches and rain forests also. The old city of Panama is being restored and is very atmospheric. But the main reason we visited was to see the canal and indeed transit it, which we did on Xmas [...]

Central America

We flew into Miami then off to Turks and Caicos to relax and do a spot of diving, hopefully seeing some big sea life.
