I'm traveling for the next year and I have people and plans in every place I am going except for central America and buenos aires. I will be hostel hopping and taking buses.

I'm young and on a tight budget, anyone going to be in this area around the same time?

and are there any tips/ excellent places to go?

best hostels/ area to stay in buenos aires?

I'm planning on staying here for at least a week it seems AMAZING!

Hi, I'm currently planning my first solo traveling trip to central America in October of this year, soon after my 21st birthday.

I have done fairly extensive research on all of the countries in that region, have you any idea on what you want to do there, or how long you'll be there for? I'm planning to do as much as I can, from visiting the volcanic islands of Ompetepe in Nicaragua, visiting the incredible snorkeling of Glovers Reef in Belize and the Panama Canal and so much more!!

I would love to talk in more detail with you, sharing ideas and what-not, so get in touch? :)

(And dont be put off by a lack of photo of me, it won't let me upload one from my phone lol, but id be more than happy to send you a picture via email if its makes you more comfortable?)

I got your email yesterday, but it won't let me reply because I can verify my email address from my phone, so frustrating!! Haha

If you'd like you can send me a message on Facebook

or you can send me a email and I can tell you about myself and my plans like you asked.

I'm also on a tight budget (out of choice as I dont want to travel in luxury lol) so I have found quite a few nice looking, cheap places to stay and things like that.

How are you guys' plans going? I'm looking to go to Central America in October but scared of going on my own! Also gutted it's the rainy season!

Well, one weeks seems just a bit too long for Buenos Aires. I'd say the ideal number of days is 5 (but 5 full days, not taking into account the day you arrive and the one you leave).
Btw, I'm an argentinian who lives 30 minutes away from Buenos Aires City.

I'm here to answer all your questions about BA (I have some information about some other provinces here if you want to see them, but of course it's Buenos Aires what I know best). I even can show you the city; I'd be like a free city guide but with poor historical knowledge.

So we'll keep in touch! I'm Maru Cerebrinsky in Facebook, you can friend me if you want.
