Meet the Author

Writer and photographer Nicholas Gill (Honduras) lives in Lima, Peru, and Brooklyn, New York. His work has appeared in publications such as the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Conde Nast Traveler, Afar, and National Geographic Traveler. Visit his personal website (www.nicholas-gill.com), or his blog on Latin American food, drinks, and travel (www.newworldreview.com).

Eliot Greenspan (Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala) is a poet, journalist, musician, and travel writer who took his backpack and typewriter the length of Mesoamerica before settling in Costa Rica in 1992. Since then, he has worked steadily as a travel writer, food critic, freelance journalist, and translator, and has continued his travels in the region. He is the author of Frommer's Belize, Frommer's Ecuador, Frommer's Guatemala, Costa Rica For Dummies, Costa Rica Day by Day, and The Tico Times Restaurant Guide to Costa Rica, as well as the chapter on Venezuela in Frommer's South America.

Charlie O'Malley (El Salvador, Nicaragua) first became fascinated with Latin America when he watched salsa dancers on a Colombian beach over a decade ago. He has since wrestled with anaconda in Venezuela, rescued turtles in Nicaragua, and been chased by bulls in Ecuador. Based in the Andean Argentine city of Mendoza, he keeps his desire for more adventure in check with lots of good local wine and work on a tourist magazine called Wine Republic. With driving skills almost as bad as the locals and an undying penchant for long siestas, he does not think he can ever live in his native Ireland again. He has worked on Frommer's guides to Argentina and South America and contributed to Frommer's 500 Adventures for Adrenaline Lovers.

Jisel Perilla (Panama) has written about, lived in, and traveled throughout much of Latin America, where she makes her living as a freelance writer. She currently resides in Bogotá, Colombia, and writes about Latin America for www.latinworld.com and other publications. You can read her personal travel blog at www.anomadlife.wordpress.com. Jisel also is the author of the Colombia chapter in Frommer's South America.
