Belize Barrier Reef

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 11-Jan-20

Belize Barrier Reef

How could I NOT like this place as both a scuba diver and nature lover!


I went to 3 places although I'm confused about the third. Does Bacalar Chico marine reserve include Amergris Caye or not!? I only went on a night dive from San Pedro (full moon makes for the best night dives!!) I know the park has a ranger station with a museum but it doesn't seem worth it, not many trips go out there and I think chances to see a jaguar are as likely in any other park in Belize and espresso northern Guatemala, and by chance I mean like 0.001%.

Volcan Masaya National Park (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 01-Jan-20

Volcan Masaya National Park (T)

Nice half-day trip, nothing spectacular. Visiting Nicaragua without a volcano visit is almost sacrilegious thus making Masaya your goal is the best bet. It's just off the road leaving Grenada, costs 100 entrance ($3?) and you'll be up at the crater of an active volcano within 10 minutes. That's pretty cool alright.

So I only got here at 2pm and the guide was already telling people not to hike around the rim of the nearby dormant volcano. He actually had his watch set to the wrong time for that - like nobody has a phone to confirm he's 25min off

Ruins of León Viejo

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 01-Jan-20

Ruins of León Viejo

I think Nicaragua inscribed the wrong places and instead should focus on all the awesome natural sites around the country. Both Leóns are kinda lame. On the other hand without an inscription nobody would visit and no funding for keeping it maintained. There were after a 3 coaches parked outside the entrance gate when I drove up, blasting their aircon the entire time parked there and the site was "overrun" by elderly American tourists. So much in fact that no guide was available for taking me which is supposed to be mandatory (or maybe just a service you get for the $5 entrance fee). This trip is shaping up to be a DIY tour more than ever.

Coiba National Park

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 28-Dec-19

Coiba National Park

What a disappointing experience. Coiba NP had potential but it is such a letdown to come here experiencing the park. The place gets glowing reviews though so what's up with that?


It's mainly from backpackers (i found mainly were German or Swedish) who just want to chill in dorms, cheap accomodations, snorkel for a day, have beers at the pool and maybe surf. Hey, that's all cool with me but that would be reviewing Santa Catalina and not Coiba. With the road now tarred and wifi reaching the village (there is even a pharmacy!) it is understandably a nice laid back place to vacation.

Franciscan Missions in the Sierra Gorda

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 25-Dec-19

Franciscan Missions in the Sierra Gorda

This will be a short review, more of an update maybe because there are already many reviews but nothing since 2014. The Sierra Gorda biosphere alone is worth visiting so the churches are maybe more of a bonus. The windy roads don't make for a fun ride if you have to deal with trucks slowing down the traffic to 20km/h and little chances to overtake most of the way. Mexican drivers can be very patient and stick behind the truck for a loooong time.

They look in good condition nowadays, almost as if they're new. I visited two of the churches on a Sunday, Jalpan was super busy and the church closed for celebrations. Landa was deserted and open
