Default Spring Break?!?!

Okay I'm not totally sold on Colombia yet mainly because I don't want to stick to the same place for the whole time and I'm nervous about wandering around...

I have 6 choices, the way flights and $ works out with my airline voucher. I'm trying to go somewhere with a sweet beach but for some other places to wander when that gets old (about mid-day on day #2)... Also trying to go somewhere cheap (though it's all Central America so pretty much all cheap lol)... need everyones opinions because I am making a fucking decision and booking TOMORROW NIGHT, I don't care if I have to close my eyes and pick one.

(FYI if you scroll up, there's a poll... )

edit to say: and by Micaragua, I do mean Nicaragua... LOL

Don't worry Nicole. If necessary I'll chip in $10k for your ransom. You'll have to pay me back though.

I think Colombia will be FINE, it's not like anywhere is truly safe. I know someone who got shot in Costa Rica and everyone thinks it's safe there.

Nicaragua! Im sad I had to cancel my trip there so I must live vicariously thru you if you choose there. My aunt works at Mango Rosa, a small restaurant type place near San Juan Del Sur..she surfs so there are some good beaches around that area.


I like Costa Rica but there are definitely more tourists there than Nica.
