hey guys..

We're flying out to Mexico City on 2nd december and have roughly 3 months to travel thru Central America, before moving on to South America.

Can anyone give me a rough suggestion of a route for these 3 months.. We will be travelling by bus, definitely want to take in the cultural/historical sites this region has to offer, take a spanish course, try and get off the beaten path!

Countries we definitely want to spend time in are:

Mexico (a small amount of time, not interested in Cancun etc.. )
Guatemala
Honduras
Nicaragua
Costa Rica
Panama

We are then planning to take a boat from Panama to Colombia.. so need to allow time in panama to get this sorted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers, em :)

Hi I just read your post, I will also be flying to Mexico (probably Mexico city) at the start of October then on to Central and South America. I have about 4mths so I'd love to hear what your itinerary was and how much it cost you all up. Any tips etc would be very welcome - thanks!!

I am happy to hear about your lack of interest in Crapcun....I will help but just happen to be at a terminal here. I'll answer shortly....But never fear. CA is a very easy place to visit and you'll have a terrrific time.
