Write For Us

If you live in Central America and have something to say about the region, you can say it here.

We are always seeking guest writers, photographers, and video makers who live in Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, or Belize.

If you can provide high-quality content that generates a conversation about Central America, we will publish your work.

The idea is to share as many experiences as possible about this part of the world.

As a guest contributor on, we will link your blog, business, or social media and help you promote yourself.

Topics & Themes

This is very fluid. We want to encourage creativity. To that end, we leave a lot of leeway for what our contributors believe are suitable topics to write about.

There are so many ideas out there. A whole subcontinent’s worth (wait… is Central America a subcontinent? That’s an article idea right there!).

The thing to remember is this place is both an information source and a source of stories. A source where the reader can get a feel for everyday life in Central America.

To this end, some topics we’re looking at include the following:

  1. Expat tales. Stories and interviews of expat entrepreneurs doing interesting things in Central America. Actually, stories and interviews of anyone doing interesting things in Central America.
  2. Informative pieces (Driving, road conditions, crime, health, etc.).
  3. Reviews of local businesses, restaurants, hotels, etc.
  4. Area overviews from a real estate or tourist point of view. Tell us about the Central American town/area that you live in!
  5. Social issues/problems in the area where you’re at and solutions.
  6. Comparisons between the countries (example: “What Is Cheaper, Costa Rica or Belize?”).
  7. Opinions on current news stories relevant to the country/region. We are not looking for news stories. Anyone can translate or rewrite stories from the local press. We want YOUR local/expat opinion on the news story as to how it relates to your community as a whole).
  8. Opinions on anything going on in Central America!
  9. Travel writing. Tell us about your adventures in Central America! Help others to explore the region through your words and images.
  10. Lists. Everyone loves a good list! Top ___ whatevers in wherever.
  11. Recipes and food/drink guides.
  12. Business info. Do you run a business in Central America? Can you help people out with permits, taxes, legal stuff? Give them a helping hand!

The above ideas are a snapshot. If it’s well-written and pertains to Central America, we will accept it. Anything you want to say about Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and/or Panama is something we believe is worth listening to. Be creative!
