Best places to travel Central America
Not only for its beauty and colorful streets, unquestionable, but also for its colonial history, its day and night atmosphere, its security, very important, and its surroundings, such as the Acatenango and Fuego volcanoes.
Although geographically Mexico belongs to North America, many people place it in Central America (some even South America…), that’s why I wanted to include as an extra something special of this wonderful country: its cenotes!
I’m talking for example about the natural pools Semuc Champey and the Candelaria Caves in Guatemala, the beautiful Granada and the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, the spectacular Pulhapanzak Falls and the Yojoa Lake in Honduras or some of the paradisiacal beaches of Costa Rica.

Traveling by bus in Central America
Our trip to Central America was not organized by ourselves, as we normally do, but in collaboration with Visit Central America, the Central American Tourism Promotion Agency and the Ministries of Tourism of the countries we visited.
I did not find it a particularly beautiful city because, due to the earthquakes and eruptions it has endured over the centuries, it has had to be rebuilt several times and this has not allowed the old colonial buildings to be preserved as in other cities.
The Ruta de las Flores, located in the departments of Sonsonate and Ahuachapán, in the west of the country, crosses the Apaneca – Ilamatepec mountain range. It is the perfect route to get to know the cultural, gastronomic and natural richness of El Salvador.
Like El Salvador, Honduras was also not among my most imminent travel plans, so this trip was a great opportunity to get to know the country, which again became a real surprise.
How to travel through Central America
BangladeshBangladeshBy far the least visited neighbor in South Asia, it is one of the cheapest countries in the world to travel to. Overshadowed by two tourism giants like India and Nepal, Bangladesh falls short of great attractions that catch the eye, which is why so few people dedicate part of their itinerary to it.The experience of traveling to Bangladesh is incomparable to any other, or at least that’s how it felt to me. Because there is so little tourism, any foreigner is a big novelty, and that instantly makes you a celebrity. From invitations to houses to groups of people chasing us to take pictures with me and my partner (or just to take a closer look at us), every day we spent in Bangladesh was an unforgettable anecdote.Cost-wise, traveling in Bangladesh is generally even cheaper than traveling in India. Only in accommodation, having much less variety for different budgets, you will have to calculate a little more.
