Thinking about travel in the Americas?
You’ve come to the right place.

Eric & Karen - Amazon, Iquitos, PsceruOdds are you don’t know anyone who can tell you about travel in the Americas like we can. Let us bring it all to life for you.

We’ve spent more than a decade traveling full time in North, Central, and South America and we’re still on the road. We move slowly. We explore thoroughly.  Then we tell you all about it on our Trans-Americas Journey travel blog where we apply the same high journalistic standards we use to produce the freelance travel stories we write and photograph for some of the best travel publications in the world.

Here you’ll find hundreds of posts full of inspiring, honest reports and beautiful photos and video covering adventure travel, luxury travel, food, hotels, cities, culture, national parks, UNESCO sites, archaeological sites, emerging destinations, and much, much more.

If it exists in the Americas, odds are we’ve been there. So this is the place to find the travel information and inspiration that will get you out there like a pro.

You can begin with information about each country in the Americas on our Destinations page where you’ll get a quick hit of need-to-know details so you can hit the ground running.  Here are a few of our top destinations (so far).
