ABOUT UNSEEN AMERICAS

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.
