For the first part of my current trip to Central America, I traveled through Guatemala and Belize with my sister Laura. We both flew into Guatemala City and out of Belize City. Since we were traveling through remote areas, the internet was spotty at times, and I’m finally getting around to recapping our adventures.
I am taking a trip to Central America this March, and my mother and sister are joining me for portions of the trip. I booked all three of our tickets with airline miles from credit cards, and here I am going to share how I did it!
