About the Author

Amy E. Robertson is a Seattle native who has long been obsessed with travel. She studied in Boston and Madrid for her bachelor's degree, and upon graduating took a job with an international consulting firm. This position led Amy to a life of globetrotting--she traveled to more than 50 countries in less than three years. She then returned to school, earning a master's degree in development studies at the London School of Economics, where she also met husband, who hails from Italy. After working in international aid for five years in New York City, Amy and her family began life as expats in Ecuador, brought there by her husband's job with the United Nations. Amy made the career switch from development to travel writing while in Ecuador, a livelihood that was easy to bring along when they made the move to Honduras in 2007. Her writing has been published in "National Geographic Traveler, Christian Science Monitor" and "Travel + Leisure, " among others.

Amy currently resides in Tegucigalpa with her husband and two young children, but spends three months a year divided between her family's hometowns: Seattle, Rome, and Messina, Sicily. Together, Amy and her family enjoy exploring the mountain villages, Mayan ruins, white-sand beaches, and lush forests of Central America. Hiking with her kids in Honduras's jungles and cloud forests, and spotting birds and crocodiles on the Mosquito Coast were among her favorite experiences while researching this guidebook.
