Central America starting in Feb?
I'm leaning towards starting at a spanish school in Guatemala, and then......I'm pretty flexible from there! I want to volunteer for a significant portion of that time period.
My plan is for three to four months in Central America-
send me a message if you are thinking about heading that way!
"we shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time.."
I have a few other friends that will be meeting up along the way and probably a side trip to Cuba if anyone's interested.
Great place, nice people.
Visited Tikal, Panajachel at Lake Atitlan, Chichicastanago, and many small towns. Carefully bypassed most of the tourist areas including Guate and Antigua. But, did pass through Antigua one evening on a shuttle and thought it may be great place to see (flat and very planned Colonial city that reminded me of Spain and a bit of the French Quarter in New Orleans). Lots of Spanish schools there and everywhere really.
Spoke with people living in Costa Rica who were visiting Guate on Holiday and they say that they like Guate better. Safer and better roads if you believe that. I hope you can visit Nicaragua safely. I heard there are deals there.
Best thing about Guate are the prices for hostels and food prices. Worst thing are for the taxi drivers who will steal from unsuspecting tourists. Beware of the taxi drivers. . . .
I am heading south from there but which countries, cities, times, and dates are all up in the air.
I have done the euro thing and been to CR for a week and a half but haven't backpacked through CA and SA before. If you or for that matter anyone else will be in CA / SA from March on let me know and maybe we can meet up.
Ps My spanish is rusty but decent so if someone is looking for a buddy who can speak spanish I might be their guy
