im putting together a trip to central america for the end of may. i would like to stay in CA for 6 weeks or so. im not interested in adhering to a schedule, and i understand that costs vary depending on country. my timeline is very flexible. What i want to ask at this point is what i can expect to budget for the six week period. it looks like hostels will be from $15 USD - $30 USD?
it also sounds like buses are the way to get around. What about daily cost of food? would an estimate of $50 USD be accurate?
im trying to get a rough concept of what i need to save (- airfare), and any advice, expertise, or direction would be outstanding
