Unseen Americas is an alternative news, culture and travel blog that explores those lesser visited spaces where the highway ends and the wilderness begins. From the sketchy US-Mexico border to the teeming rainforests of Panama, it is a constantly roaming, inquisitive presence.

Designed and written by travel writer Richard Arghiris and journalist Jennifer Kennedy, Unseen Americas draws inspiration from the cultural and geographic landscapes of eight diverse nations: Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. It features everything from colourful street photography to in-depth reports on indigenous struggles.
