Central America Wrap-up

1 comment

Well that flew by pretty fast! Seems like just yesterday we were closing up shop on our home and now we are 4 countries in. We had a great time in CA and are super excited to come back! We walked the cobbled streets of countless cities, got lost and found our way, walked some of the most beautiful beaches in world, discovered a new world under the waves, developed a great appreciation for the simple life, and most of all enjoyed the company of many travellers and locals alike– these are the moments that truly last.

It was not all sunshine and roses. We almost died more than once, got sick from too much, too little, and just plain bad food, took a lot of horrid bus rides, and lost all our photographs but what was probably the worst was seeing many of the cultures of CA clammering to adopt the westeren overly capitalist and self indulgent mentality that we so dislike from home.

We will for sure be back, you can count on that!

Favorite moments:

  • The overall fantastic people
  • Gallo Pinto
  • Bus rides through the countryside
  • Diving in Honduras
  • Making lots of new friends from all over the world
  • Truck bed rides
  • Motorcycle Rides
  • Poking Lava
  • Volcano Hiking
  • Snorkeling in Honduras
  • Antigua

Not so great:

  • Trash everywhere
  • Getting Robbed
  • Costa Rican food
  • Tourist prices

Total Money Spent Per Person: $1809

Average Per Day Costs Per Person:

  • Lodging: $6.50
  • Food: $9.50
  • Transportation: $6.06
  • Misc: $11.44 (Beer, Trips to the store, Padi, Park entrance, Guide Fees, etc.)

Total Average Per Day, Per Person: $33.50 (includes Padi course in Honduras)

Number of Days: 54

  1. Wow, we are a little jealous. We haven’t poked lava, snorkeled or been robbed yet but we are only three days into our trip, maybe we can catch up?

    We are even more impressed by your budget. Its easy to kind of go above plan, especially with transportation. Motorcycle rides and truck beds are something we are going to have to try.
