I am planning a trip in a few months travelling from Cancun Mexico into Peru through Belize and Guatamala and am just wondering if anyone has done this themselves and wether its a good idea to be attempting this trip whilst travelling alone. I have travelled before but only in Asia and Australia and have heard that S.America is a different kettle of fish. i can speak only basic spanish so wondering how i will get on. does anyone have any experience of doing a similar trip? any tips, places etc would also be greatly appreciated.
