Harvs99 has indicated that this thread is about Central America


I'm looking to join anyone who's going to be travelling Central America from start Feb to end March. My friend has just bailed on me so am now planning to rock up in either Mexico or Panama (no flights booked yet!) on 1st Feb solo. I'm 23yr old female from the UK. I'm very laid back and have no plans as such for my trip - would just like to soak up some local culture, improve my Spanish and generally have a bit of an adventure.

I'm on quite a tight budget so have looked into volunteering with workaway/helpx to keep costs down and get a bit of a different experience to the normal gringo trail if that appealed to anyone?

Anyway, if anyone else is as disorganised as me and hasn't got themselves a travelling companion yet or doesn't mind me tagging along, then let me know.

Hi, I am planning on traveling to some country in South America from March til End of April/Beginning of May. I am from California, female and 20 years old. My intentions are simply to learn Spanish and enjoy the culture. I am looking into any country that speaks similar spanish to the Spanish spoken in California (so like Gautemala or possibly Argentina). Please let me know if you are interested.

If you're interested in volunteering while you're there, there's a project in Utila (Just off the coast of Honduras) that I'm doing from Feb 14th for a month, and they're always in need of more help! Great for scuba diving etc there! If not, after that I'm hitting pretty much the rest of C.America on my way down to Argentina (Eventually), let me know if you're ever about as I'm doing it solo too!

Hi, I am looking into travelling to Central America a week from now.

I know its very late plan and all (clearly i am not organizsed about this). But this is the first time i am traveling alone. So, would love to join.

Please let me know if you are still in the area. I am thinking of flying into the region on April 14th and leaving by May 2nd or so.
