I have done a lot of research and think I have found some great destinations throughout Central America to travel to. But I need some help with ideas and maybe identifying some overlaps in offering at destinations. I have 7 weeks and would prefer to travel cheap via buses between destinations. I wouldn't mind lossing some locations if this isn't doable in 7 weeks. I plan to start in Panama City, Panama, because flights were cheap, and head north until I end up in Antigua, Gautamala--because it's also cheap to fly from. Also the order can be tweaked if it's more efficient. The order of travel is: Panama City, and Boquete, Panama; Jaco, San Jose, Monte Verde, and La Fortuna, Costa Rica; Ometepe Island, Granada, and Leon, Nicaragua; Utila, Honduras; Placencia, The Great Blue Hole, and Caye Caulker, Belize; Tikal National Forest, Lago de Atitlan, and Antigua, Gautamala.
I'm open to all suggestions and ideas. I haven't bought a ticket so I'm wide open but these are the areas that seemed the coolest. I'll be going in July and August. Thanks in advance for your input.
