Belize - Destination guide
Belize is the only Central American country where English is the official language. With 900 Maya temple sites, one crystal skull, some of the best dive sites in the Caribbean and their own version of Big Foot/Sasquatch roaming the jungle, you better Belize this is a great destination to explore!
Here are a few suggestions of things to see and do in my favourite places in North America.
Take heed, my lists are not intended as essential bucket lists and nor are they written in any particular order. To protect our sanity, I’ve limited each country to only ten suggestions. While there may be more worthy sights to see first, you don’t need to worry because you’ll hear all about those as soon as you arrive.
Canada - Destination guide
Canada has the most lakes in the world and one of them contains Ogopogo, Canada’s own version of the Loch Ness monster. Canada is also home to Superman’s secret hideaway and this may be the only country in the world where you can accidently bump into someone and receive a heartfelt apology. Huge mountains, waterfalls, loads of wildlife and an untouched wilderness, get amongst it!
Cuba - Destination guide
It’s all true, you can experience the romance of an entire nation living in the 1950s in Cuba. But, it’s not exactly like stepping into an episode of Happy Days. While the countryside is stunning, the man-made bits are gritty and much of the infrastructure is rather run down. But do not despair, the gritty bits are the charm and every inch of this island is a photographer’s dream.
Guatemala - Destination guide
Snow peaked volcanos, tropical jungles, Pacific beaches and epic Mayan temple complexes, little wonder why the Star Wars rebels choose Guatemala as the location for their secret Yavin base.
Mexico - Destination guide
Aztec and Mayan temples, jungles, beaches and a capital city that’s sinking at a rate of 15 – 20 centimetres per year. To a group of wandering nomads in the 14th century, the land under Mexico City seemed like a good place to settle after spying an eagle standing on a cactus with a snake it its mouth. You may not see such a sight on your holiday, but if you do maybe you will want to stay too.
USA - Destination guide
When in Oklahoma, remember it is against the law to have a sleeping donkey in your bathtub. It’s also forbidden to eat in a building that’s on fire in Chicago and whatever you do, don’t pass wind in a public place after 6pm in Florida. You probably already have a list longer than Hwy 101 of things you want to see and do in the United States, so here are ten less known things you may wish to add to your, already, bulging list.
