James Leet-Cook I came across Latin America whilst looking for surf. This search took me to Nicaragua where I ended up spending 4 months, falling in love with the country, culture and people. After being so mesmerised with Nicaragua and hearing passing travellers speaking so highly of the surrounding countries, I decided I needed to check them out. I have since been lucky enough to experience Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Panama and Colombia are on my list for later in the year.
