little corn island
We have been reading your blog, and loving it! We to are planning a RTW trip departing in under 8 months! I noticed you spent alot of time in Central America, and we plan to spend 3 months there! Would love any feedback about our route http://www.gettingstamped.com/our-trip/our-rout/ and any other advice you may have!
Hi Getting Stamped! Thanks for finding Border Tramp, glad you liked it! Your adventure sounds like it will be amazing. As far as your route, I might suggest some different spots, but I see you have some flight plans, etc that might preclude too many detours. As far as Belize, Caye Caulker and San Ignacio are great. And from San Ignacio you can check out the ATM sacred caves (the best in the world according to National Geographic Traveler) and hop over to Tikal in Guatemala, which is really incredible as well. (We have all the travel info covered on this site.) Punta Gorda seems to be more of a stop through, and it’s pretty easy to get out and somewhere else pretty fast.
In Guatemala, like I said it would be a shame to miss Tikal, but it is really remote. Also Lanquin and Semuc Champey was probably my all-time favorite location in Central America. Livingston was a bit of a bust for us. A nice town and definitely a departure from the rest of Guatemala, but not necessarily worth the cost and hassle of getting there. Overall I don’t think it’s possible to spend enough time exploring Guatemala. The natural landscape there from the highlands to the volcanoes to Semuc Champey, the beauty is mind-blowing.
And for Nicaragua, Little Corn Island is truly a gem by any standards. Sure you may think you’ve seen plenty of Caribbean paradise, but Little Corn blows any other beach village out of the water. And if you guys are into diving — the reefs here are out of this world. A night dive in Little Corn is an absolute must, in my opinion.
Hope this helps! Have fun!!
