Central & South America
Pacaya Samiria Reserve
was great. The people there are very kind, and make you feel at home. About the weather - a bit too cold sometimes but the sun was shining most of the time. I am looking forward to going back.
is a nice town, close to several tourist attractions worth seeing.
There are almost no mosquitoes in
! You can walk the streets safely until midnight every night. The streets are narrow, and mototaxis ply the streets.
is a beautiful city, but we had problems getting to our hostel, because the taxidrivers only offer to -- actually they forcefully take you to hostels where they get comission for every gringo they bring.
you can get into the real jungle, and if you search a little, you will find options for camping in the jungle, or even have an expedition to look for big animals. You can find very good local guides.
… This is an amazing place and very far off the normal beaten tourist track. Wonderful beaches, people, food, and climate, well worth a visit, lots to do and see in the area that isn't in the books.
… Get out of the plaza area for much cheaper food and drink and without hoards of backpackers.
… I've been travelling around South America and Peru as well. Amazing, but there are many poor people too but happy and friendly for sure.
