From all the trips I made, the one to Central America, and then especially Guatemala ranks amoung the best. There's also a site on Cuba written by Steven Buvens and a site made by Guido Gevels. Guatemala Guatemala has everything a traveller could dream of (except beaches maybe): There's the authentic Indian culture with lively and colourful markets like in Solola. Make sure you have plenty of film there, you'll need it. There's the Mayan culture in the North.
