Can anyone tell me how easy it is to get from BC Canada, down to Central America. The cheapest way possible, is it easy to hitchhike?. Plus what is the economy like in C.America, how much will I need to spend for a few months. I can live very rough. Thanks

Do a web search for cheap flights.
It's neither the custom or wise to hitch hike in Mexico or anywhere in Central America.

Buy Lonely Planet;Central America
I would get a cheapie flight from Canada to Cancun,Mexico and then BUS it ALL the way through Belize and all Countries to Panama City and that way you will experience the thrill of roughing?? it and its a very very cheap and safe way to travel and meet other travellers to exchange Notes???
I stayed in LP Budget hotels appox 10$ per night en-suite as i am old and need to treat myself(nobody else will;haha)but you would stay in dorms?????,3-5$/night.
Food is 10$ per day eating out but half the time i did'nt know what i was eating as i did not speak sponola but had only 2 cases of Delhi belly so done well!!!!
Busline you might want is but it is a schedule bus line,I just used ord longdistance buses and jumped off and on when it suited me!!
You dont need No Visa's,you dont need onward ticket travel,you dont need to show credit cards or money,"SO dont have a stopover in USA";ALL you Need is the Will to go, so;
All the best and Good Luck on "YOUR TRAVELS".
