Home to unrivalled diversity, Latin America is a melting pot of cultures
The countries that make up Latin America are as distinct from one another as the region is from other parts of the world. So, what unites them? In addition to geographical proximity and the Spanish language (with the exception of Portuguese in Brazil and French in Haiti), perhaps it’s the culture, the climate, the more relaxed outlook on life than European counterparts. There are a number of familiarities that unite them but, at the same time, many aspects that make them unique thanks to their historical context. This is, ultimately, the charm of Latin America.
With that in mind, we have prepared a broad overview of the “best of all things Latin”, with a particular focus on tourism, culture and gastronomy. With so many countries to choose from and so few pages, it won’t be possible to showcase everything at once, but we promise to profile each one in greater detail in future editions. Below are some of the highlights.
To give priority to our Latin neighbours, we will not include Brazil in this section. But worry not, if you want to find out more about this South American giant just browse any of the other editions of BBMag – Bossa Brazil Magazine printed or online.
The main tourist attraction is the island of Roatán, with its paradisiacal beaches and lavish hotels. For the more active, the island’s interior has many trails among native vegetation and wildlife.
Those looking for even more nature can find it in the Pico Bonito National Park, which rewards visitors with waterfalls, lush scenery, and diverse wildlife.
Many Honduran dishes are made using coconut (and its milk), meat and cheese. And ground beans are also very popular, which are usually served as an accompaniment.
