We drove just 8,028 miles (12,919 km) during the entire year, making 2011 the lowest mileage year of our Journey so far. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t get anywhere. We began the year in Guatemala, drove through practically every inch of road in Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador, then dipped a toe into Nicaragua (we’ll be back) before ending the year in Costa Rica where our Central American explorations continue.

Here’s what a year on the road in Central America with the Trans-Americas Journey looked like in 2011.
