If you were a newcomer (all of you oldcomers) to the Latin America region, where would you go and what would you see for a two-week vacation? I'm currently in San Salvador...would you head off to S. America or explore the adjoining countries first?

Two weeks isn't much time. If I were in your place, I'd probably head for Guatemala and Honduras, but that's just me. I'm kind of partial to the climate, geography, people, and cultures of those countries.

Thanks Tim - the teachers here are rather partial to Antigua for a quick trip - it is on my list. I've heard of so many nice places in the general vicinity...I guess I'll be getting more time so I'm thinking of S. America - maybe an 'ecotour' or something.

I was in Antigua for 3 days. It was a very enjoyable time, but oh, so short.

In El Salvador, I like Lago Coatepeque, but I was always in a private area. Don't know of public beaches on the lake, b/c my time in El Salvador was always very "protected." But it sounds like you wanted to get out of the country, anyway. Wink

Thanks Tamara, I will be going to that lake for a church 'advance' in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to it...
