One travel journalist has written about the special memories he has of one small town in Guatemala.
Simon Gandolfi made particular mention of the natural surroundings on the river Rio Dulce, which could inspire adventure travellers to visit the quiet part of the central American nation.
In an article for the Guardian, Mr Gandolfi described his first visit to the town of Fronteras and the journey along the river: "I remember butterflies and the flash of kingfishers and a tribal couple with three small children squatting silent and so still on a fallen tree trunk as to be almost invisible."
He revealed that he stayed with a Guatemalan friend who owns a bar and restaurant by the side of the river, which has gradually developed into a small resort offering accommodation in basic cabins.
Mr Gandolfi recently revisited Guatemala as part of his journey through Latin America for one of his latest books, Old Man on a Bike.
