Thank you for this excellent list! I am pleased to see two places in Guatemala listed: my beloved Lake Atitlan and La Antigua Guatemala. I hope that the country's problems can be fixed by some miracle, as I and many others have great feelings for the people, the natural wonders and the culture of this special place.

Now to look up Lake Chapala, Mexico, and some of the others. Thanks, Andy, for creating this website with so much real honest experience from your own travels. Much appreciated.


Andy, first of all Thank you for all your help. Lost my wife to suicide, after that was forced to rent a one room in short order. Sold two cars almost everything in a 3 bedroom home. One of the hardest was giving up her two dogs and three cats. I was lucky and kept them together as a family unit.
Now, I am retired and would like to find a less humid, cooler area perhaps S. America. I have learned so much from your videos. Just a few more weeks here in Atlanta, Ga area. Just a little apprehensive about moving alone on such a tight budget. I would hate ever being a burden on anyone.
Again..Thank you so much Andy and Happy Trails. .
See you soon, I hope !
Chuck aka The Grill King ..gonna miss my Big Green Egg. Oh well..
