Montenegro – this small European country punches well above its weight in terms of a tourist attraction – it is considered one of the most interesting places to visit in the world by Lonely Planet and is brimming with rich history and diversity. Start in the old town of Podgorica…
Nicaragua – water sport and history enthusiasts flock to Nicaragua – it is definitely off the beaten track, but enjoys a climate that is warm and settled almost year round.
Guatemala – some of the best coffee in the world originates here, but it is also known for its volcanoes, and romantic Spanish-style architecture and cobbled streets. Antigua has its very own Central Park, and so much to explore.
Uruguay – Montevideo hosts the longest carnival celebration in the world, so if you love a party – this is the spot. Water sports, tango, disco bars right on the beach – what’s not to love?
