CUMULATIVELY, I’VE SPENT fourteen months in Central and South America.
Sifting through some old photos since 2013, I got a little bit nostalgic.
I’m still in Colombia (Medellin) so it’s not all doom and gloom! I felt it would be nice idea to share only one (!) photo, a memorable moment in each country in Central and South America that I was fortunate enough to visit.
There were more visually striking images along the way (Machu Picchu and Iguaza Falls to name just two), but these images all had a back story and were memorable in their own way.
I hope you enjoy!
Semuc Champey – Guatemala. Incredibly beautiful country. We had to traverse through underwater caves, and scale steep terrain to get to this postcard point.
Death Road – Bolivia. Incredibly scary and for good reason. Scene of my accident where I broke and dislocated my wrist.
Utila – Honduras. This is a popular party spot. I juggled completing my Open Water Padi Diving Certification with getting twisted in the bars dotted along this island.
Buenos Aires – Argentina. The asado in Argentina was mouth watering!
Leon – Nicaragua. Beautiful Architecture and reminded me a lot of Antigua. Great for strolling around ans soaking up the sun.
Panama City – Panama. Panama Canal. Nuff said! I didn’t do much in this country!
La Fortuna – Costa Rica. Decent backdrop for the townies here!
Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. Fifa Fan Fest for World Cup 2014. Incredible atmosphere right on Copacabana beach
Tulum, Mexico – Most Beautiful Beaches I’ve ever seen!
Atacama Desert – Chile. Sky At Night, Needs to be seen to be believed! The clearest and most ridiculously detailed skies I’ve seen in my life.
Quito – Ecuador. Sums up my two weeks (searching for an Irish Bar)
Guatepe – Colombia. My buddy and I enjoying the incredible views just outside Medellin
Cusco – Peru. Scene of my life-changing ayahuasca experience
Montevideo – Uruguay. Plaza Independencia on a hungover morning of a wild weekend with friends
I’d love to hear from other travellers who have shared the same experiences.
What were your stand-out memories from your time in Central/South America?
