Hi there,

I've recently decided I might throw my stuff into storage, find a temporary home for the dog and get on a plane.

My plan at this stage is to fly from Auckland to LA, have a few days of plastic trees and people then jump down to costa rica. I've found a cool looking surf school in montezuma which I'm keen to try. From there, I've really got no idea.

I'd like to do the inca trail, iguacu falls and brazil but beyond that I've got no idea. What would you guys suggest? There seemed to be a lot of solo travelers going to central/south America early this year based on previous post replies, I'm looking at arriving mid to late April.

Although I hate the term, my ideal travel style is flashpacking with the occasional hotel thrown in for a plush bed and tv.

All recommendations or advice welcome.

It will be my first time traveling solo.


Sorry for grammatical issues, typing on iPad grrr.
