Caracol (Belize). 'Step out of the modern world and into the ancient world at Belize’s largest Maya site, where you’ll spend the day wandering through a city that once rivaled Tikal in political influence. Standing in the central area of temples, palaces, craft workshops and markets, you’ll feel the power and glory of ancient Caracol. At 141ft, Caana (which means Sky Place) is still the tallest building in Belize.' www.lonelyplanet....

Placencia (Belize). 'It isn’t off the beaten path, true, but there’s a reason so many feet beat the path to Southern Belize’s most popular spot. This small village is just too chilled out to not spend some time kayaking, sailing, or just walking barefoot on the beach by day, and drinking rum drinks by night. As for dining, it has two of the area’s best restaurants, so your culinary cravings will be well catered for.' www.lonelyplanet....

Hopkins (Belize). 'Halfway between the hustle of Dangriga and the tourist vibe of Placencia lies slacked-out Hopkins. Children walk the town’s one street selling their mothers’ freshly baked coconut pies and chocolate brownies; local men catch fish by day and play drums at night. Best of all is the beach, which is as pretty as any in Southern Belize, but it is never crowded.' www.lonelyplanet....

Community Baboon Sanctuary (Belize). 'The "baboons" at this sanctuary are not really baboons, but rather black howler monkeys, an endangered species in Central America. Thanks to this community-based, grassroots effort, property owners have agreed to preserve their land for the benefit of the resident monkeys. Guides take tourists to a small area which allows for up-close observation of the funny monkeys.' www.lonelyplanet....

Belize Zoo (Belize). 'Humane, earthy and educational, even people philosophically opposed to the very concept of caged creatures will approve of this zoo. As a halfway house and rehabilitation center for injured, orphaned and rescued Belizean jungle animals, the Belize Zoo is a fabulous and friendly place to get a good look at 125 species of indigenous animals and birds that are difficult to spot in the wild.' www.lonelyplanet....

Mountain Pine Ridge (Belize). 'In the remote west, the highlands of the Maya Mountains are covered with pine forest, an unexpected aberration on the landscape. Big Rock Falls are the impressive waterfalls at Privassion Creek.' www.lonelyplanet....

Colonial Architecture (Guatemala) 'Quetzaltenango - The country’s second city has some great old buildings, especially around the Parque Central.' www.lonelyplanet....
