This episode is a bit different than usual because we only spent 5 days in Honduras. We were't sure whether to condense this into another episode but we decided that Honduras deserved its own episode.

As you see Honduras showed us a lot of love and we would really recommend Honduras as a tourist destination, just make sure your are fully aware of which areas to stay away from as it is a dangerous country in certain areas. The ares we visit such as Isle Del Tigre we cannot recommend enough, it's pure Central America!

Antigua Guatemala Travel Guide - Step Into Europe in Central America | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Welcome to Antigua Guatemala, a colorful and elegant little town in Central America.

It is a small city that used to be a part of the Spanish colony. Famous for its well-preserved Baroque-influenced architecture, as well as colonial churches ruins, it used to be the capital city. After a hazardous earthquake in 1773, the Spanish crown decided to move it to a new place which is today known as Guatemala city. Some people refused to leave and what was left was renamed into “Antigua Guatemala” meaning Old Guatemala.

Today, it only has around 30 000 inhabitants, but it is a calm and cultural place with the buildings of vivid colors, clean cobblestone streets and breath-taking architecture, very popular for tourists. It is a really cute place which is also under UNESCO’s protection.

Walking around the city, there are views of the imposing Volcán de Agua to the south and the twin peaks of Volcán de Fuego and Acatenango to the west. There are many lined with farm-to-table restaurants, contemporary art galleries, and design studios. The whole town seems so sophisticated, but in such an unusual way, since it is a combination of vivid colors, Spanish culture, rich history, and Guatemalan spirit and surrounding nature.

With its booming coffee scene and boutique hotels, Antigua is quickly garnering appeal as one of the most alluring cities in Central America and we can now see why.

Enjoy the video and let us know where you're watching from!

CENTRAL AMERICA BACKPACKING TRIP | Ep2: Belize & Guatemala

I went solo backpacking around Central America for 6 weeks, travelling through Mexico, Belize and Guatemala.

This 3 part documentary series shows the entire backpacking experience.

In this second video I head inland through Belize to San Ignacio, exploring the Caracol ruins by jeep. Then I crossed the border into Guatemala, staying in the beautiful town of Flores to visit the ancient Mayan ruins of Tikal.

Next stop was the beautiful Semuc Champey, stunning waterfalls in the jungle-filled mountains. I stayed at the Zephyr Lodge in Lanquin which was a fun but dangerous place for your bank account.

Backpacking Central America Tips and Tricks

For the last two months Nellie and I have been backpacking Central America. We started in Cancun and will finish this week in San Jose.

In this video we wanted to touch on a few of the budgeting tips and tricks we've learned throughout this journey. Specifically Transportation, Accommodation, Food & Drink, and Activities.

All of these things if managed properly can make the journey absolutely amazing and save you a lot of money at the same time.

Nellie has been averaging about $40 per day over all of the expenses including some internal flights, rental car, and activities. I've been a bit higher at about $52 but I put that down to more food and drink than anything else.

It is however possible to backpack Central America at around $30 per day or less if you're really careful.

Hope these tips and info helps and that you are enjoying your journey or getting stoked on the adventure ahead!!

Cheers from Uvita Beach, Costa Rica!!

El Salvador Needs to be on Your Bucket List

Did you know that El Salvador is smaller than Massachusetts, but has HUNDREDS of volcanoes?!

I had the opportunity to visit El Salvador a few weeks ago on a tour with Salvadorean Tours, and I was blown away by the natural beauty, hospitable people and tasty food (hello #pupusas)! We went all over the country, hiking volcanoes, visiting small villages, touring big cities, etc -- and I loved every second of being there.

El Salvador, unfortunately, gets a bad reputation on the news & media for being unsafe, and therefore, many tourists avoid going there. I'm here to tell you not to listen to the news and come visit for yourself to see how truly spectacular this country is. I'm not saying crime doesn't exist there (crime is everywhere) -- but as long as you take normal precautions and use common sense (i.e. avoid dangerous areas at night), then you will be fine. Salvadorean People are warm and friendly, and almost everyone is open to having a genuine conversation.

I hope this video changes your perspectives on the beauty of El Salvador.

BUDGET TRAVEL - El Salvador is so CHEAP

BUDGET TRAVEL - El Salvador is so CHEAP


I'm always looking for great budget travel options and El Salvador has always eluded me - until now. After a few quick google searches, I learned about a surf town called El Tunco - winning!

After my quick Central America vacation, I can now confirm - El Salvador is an UNDERRATED cheap travel destination. The locals loved tourists. El Tunco is a super small, quaint surf town with some seriously chill vibes. I felt safe the entire time. The coastline is mostly rock beaches with just about every type of surf break you could want.

Yes, El Salvador is off the beaten track. No, El Salvador is not a perfect country. For those reasons, I believe El Salvador has remained a hidden gem for budget travelers.

This was my first every Youtube vlog style video. Let me know what you think :)
