South and Central America
From Mexico to Bolivia, the Galapagos Islands to the Amazon, South and Central America is a region full of interest and intrigue.
There’s a little something for everyone here, inquisitive wildlife, historical sites, stunning waterfalls, beautiful scenery and dancing in the main squares at lunchtime – truly.
And it’s such an interesting blend of Spanish culture, which gives many of the cities a very European feeling, and cultures that date back centuries such as the Mayans, the Incas and the Aztecs, which provide a rich history.
I admit I was a little hesitant at the thought of going to this part of the world. All the stories I’d heard about South and Central America spoke of violence and drugs – not for me I’m afraid.
But South and Central America is, of course a series of diverse cities and countries. Sure, there are some areas that are more troubled than others, but there is also immense beauty, fascinating history and life overload. Everything is more vibrant in this part of the world, the colours, the spices, the music, the dancing and we’ve only just scratched the surface.
