Images of Central America: A photo-blog

My weeks spent in Central America were ones I'll never forget. Superb archaeological sites sit within diverse natural environments; extreme activities got my blood pumping and the waters of both the Caribbean and Pacific were rich with colourful fish. Such a variety of things to do meant that there was no chance of the 'travel fatigue' that can sometimes be felt after a lengthier time away. As usual, I took hundreds upon hundreds of photos - here are just a few that I felt summed up our travels through this incredible region.

Even a heavy mist, raging winds and heavy rain couldn't keep us away from the zip lines in Monteverde

After excitedly glimpsing sloths high up in the trees, we were staggered to come across a baby crawling along the ground right in front of us

 
A brief break between rapids on the river Pacuare in Costa Rica

Guatemala truly was the land of volcanoes, surrounding us on all sides in Antigua

Tikal was my favourite archaeological site

The flight over the Blue Hole was like gazing into a huge eye

The jungle threatens to envelop Palenque, creeping ever closer

Archaeology was abundant when driving around the Yucatan peninsula

Mexico City was the perfect ending to the trip, where amazing architecture met a cosmopolitan centre
