And welcome to the forum from me too CurlyWurly……..
Welcome, @CurlyWurly65 – backpacking in Central America – what a great trip that will be.
I’m assuming you speak Spanish? I’ve not been there but recall a long conversation with a couple who have – they liked Costa Rica, but loved Nicaragua – less touristy and the people really welcoming. (If you think of going as far south as Ecuador, do let me know – I was there last winter, travelling independently, and it’s wonderful.)
I’ve literally just registered so thought I’d say hello to everyone.
I’m a Geordie now working and living overseas since last yr. I’m planning on doing a 3 month backpacking trip to Central America on my own sometime next yr, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
