Detail of tile and plaster work at the Alcazar in Sevilla (Seville) Spain.
Coffee Beans and Leaves from the Guacamaya Mountain preserve near Copan, Honduras. Much of Central America counts coffee as a major industry, and many coffee plantation offer tours to show the process of growing, harvesting, and roasting coffee beans.
Cerro el Pital, on the Border of Honduras and El Salvador, is the highest peak in El Salvador, at 2730 meters (8957 feet). You can take a bus most of the way up and hike the rest.
This yellow arch in Antigua is perhaps the most photographed part of the city. This detail of the clock is located right near the top of the actual arch (the arch, of course, has been cropped out of the photo).
The church in Suchitoto, El Salvador that is located right on the main square. For most visitors to Suchitoto this church is both dominant part of your initial view of the city square and also the dominant sound you will hear in the city (the bells at least).
This giant water feature in Antigua has a covered walkway on the left side. Inside of that area are large wash basins where locals (mostly in days gone by, no doubt) could wash items.
A church destroyed in one of Antigua's earthquakes of 1773 is now simply surrounded by beautiful flowering bougainvilleas. Antigua is a fascinating contrast of spruced up facades with fresh coats of paint and ruins left by earthquakes.
This photo was taken under the yellow clock arch, one of the most photographed sites in Antigua, Guatemala.
Casa Popenoe was my favorite attraction in Antigua, Guatemala. A beautifully restored colonial home, Casa Popenoe gives a window into how a royal official lived in the 17th century. With an impressive courtyard and garden, a rooftop terrace, beautiful woodwork and period furniture, and pigeon holes formerly used for carrier pigeons, the house is well worth a visit.
This picture was taken from a hammock at my hotel in El Salvador in the town of Las Palmas. Las Palmas is a nice cool mountain, a definite contrast to the hot, jungle air of Suchitoto, El Salvador. Learning some Spanish is definitely a good idea before heading to El Salvador, since its tourism industry isn't as developed as neighboring Guatemala and Honduras.
