Unhappy Woulda shoulda coulda

So I would be leaving today for Nicaragua where I would have spent a month in San Juan Del Sur kickin it on the beaches. The person who was going with me bailed..and I didn't have the funds for the trip..so I cancelled the ticket. Booo


I was going to use that ticket to go to Europe but in all reality it would be much more affordable to just go to Central America like I planned. So ima do dat. But i'm kinda worried for my safety and unintentionally doing something stupid that will get me mugged.

Someone convince me to just f'in do it?

Man that totally sucks!!

I think you should go for it though, travel solo. Im not great at convincing people about things I dont know (Never travelled to Central America before) but im sure you will be fine ifyou just keep your wits about you. But youve been planningthis trip, totally think you deserve to get out there and have some fun! If you dont do it, you might regret it.

Sucks that your friend cancelled! But you should still head down there! I went to Honduras alone and had a great time. Did my scuba diving certification while I was there, met a TON of people and even seen a few of them again when I went to Europe.

The thing with traveling alone is that you are rarely actually alone. You will always meet others who might hang out with you for a day or even invite you to join up with them.

Just remember be cautious, if you want to go out in the evening go with someone else or a group. You will be fine!

im traveling around C.A. right now by myself and im having a great time! The people here are very nice and ive never once felt in danger. The thing that would help you the most though is learning some spanish before you come.

Great to hear that you are having a good (and safe) time I do know enough Spanish to get me by, thankfully.
