GREAT! thanks - this is so helpful. So, what should a daily budget be then in Central America (I think I'm decided on CA). Also - does anyone have a route that they did and that was brilliant. Hostel suggestions and great dive schools will also be greatly appreciated!
When are you thinking of heading to central america? I have my trip booked from April 8th - June 10th. I'm flying into San Jose, Costa Rica, and flying home from Guatemala City. I don't really have any plans yet as to where I am going, but would like to travel around Belize, Honduras and Nicaragua as well. I'm travelling alone. Are you alone as well?
