Central America is the kind of place that will chew you up, spit you out, and leave you a worn out mess. In the very best way possible.
This is a region with serious adventure potential, but more than that, it’s also rich in heavenly beaches and the kind of cultural triumphs that will leave you awestruck. We’re all looking for those moments that will, quite literally, leave us speechless and Central America is over flowing with them.
Belize, Coast Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panama, the countries that make up Central America, are spoilt with Mayan temples, imposing volcanoes, thick jungles, vibrant cities and traditional villages – where residents still farm coffee and sugar as they did hundreds of years ago. There’s a huge amount to see, so we’re handily helping you out with our very own High Five of Central America’s best bits.

Each Scandi country is unique in its own right, but for the purposes of this post I’m joining them together, and choosing my five top experiences in super Scandinavia.

Photographs are the most precious reminder of a trip, or travel experience, that has really captured our imagination, so it’s important that they’re as good as they possibly can be.
Believe it or not, you don’t necessarily need to spend hundreds of pounds on an amazing all singing, all dancing, professional camera, to take great travel photos. A little knowledge and some crafty adjustments around how you take your shots can make a huge amount of difference to the quality of the finished product.
To offer some tips and advice on how to achieve that is Vanessa ‘Ness’ Cohen. Ness is a professional freelance photographer having recently finished her Masters in Photography, and she’s a massive travel fan too. She has recently travelled to the Southern States of North America and before that, spent time working with STA Travel and travelling Europe as a photographer for the images in our Europe brochure.
Ness is here to share her 12 simple tips to help you make your next batch of travel photos stand out, for all the right reasons.
