I'm looking for vacation ideas, and Central America has come up as a possibility. Travel time would be in September/October. I've gone through and looked at previous AskMe questions, but would appreciate relatively up-to-date recommendations and suggestions based on what I'm looking for, which includes:
- diving/swimming/snorkeling/scuba opportunities (I have no experience with diving and would be looking for classes, and am extremely nearsighted)
- in the same vein, any chances of seeing sharks of any sort?
- cave exploration
- language: I can speak some passable French and can understand Korean when my mother yells at me
- volunteer opportunities of any sort that's easy to become involved with (not necessarily medical).
If you've had any particularly great experiences or have specific recommendations of things to see or do with your destination, please share them! And if you have an idea as to how much should be budgeted per day or for the activities listed above or that you recommend, I'd appreciate that as well.
Thanks so much!
