So i'm heading off to Central and South America in January after a couple of weeks in California with some friends. Have been wanting to go away again for a few years and it seems like the perfect time to leave grey, wintery London behind...

I'm 29 and going to be working my way down through Central America and South America, no really fixed plans at the moment... Hoping to just start on a beach and get planning. Am looking to do some diving, learn some Spanish..., visit beaches, ruins, jungle, mountains, volcanoes and I guess everything else in between!

I'm planning on meeting a couple of friends for periods at certain times but would be really cool to hear from anyone else who's heading out in the same direction who may have some tips on how to avoid being bitten, kidnappings (joke) or fancy meeting up for a cerveza or hike...

Look forward to hearing from you!

hey Steve,

Myself and two girlfriends are heading to Brazil from Feb 27th-March 15th..... our plan is Rio-Salvador (for Carnaval)- Fortaleza-Florionapolis-Paraty-Iguaca Falls-Rio.

We are looking for a place to stay during Carnaval and are open to sharing a place as the prices are crazy!!!! If you have any tips or are planning on being in those areas let me know!
