2011 ended with a big finish! We explored a land we never imagined we'd visit, yet found to be amazing at every turn. Nicaragua is a land of many contrasts: colonial cities, active volcanoes, and cloud forest canopies. We visited La Isla de Ometepe, our very own "Christmas Island" and ended the year on the Pacific beaches surrounding San Juan del Sur. We kayaked, hiked, and even did a …

Our trip journal covers 10 amazing days in Belize! Perfect weather, Mayan culture and a bit of adventure. On our Belize tour we were able to scuba dive, snorkeling and hike through the jungle.
From the first contact in Ushuaia, Argentina, to the drop-off in Punta Arenas some nine days later we were safely guided through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world and provided some of the finest in service we had ever had.
