I enjoyed reading Peter Moore’s very frank book ‘The Full Montezuma‘ of his 6 month journey with the GND (girl next door, his girlfriend at the time) through Central America. Mexico down to Panama, Jamaica, Havana Cuba and back to Mexico. They traveled through some of the most beautiful and tragic parts of the world.
Check out Peter’s website & read his sample chapter and view some of the great photos he snapped up. His book confirmed to me that we’d best get to Cuba before it becomes too touristy.
