The more Spanish you know the better your experience south of the border will be.
I second that. Traveling by myself without knowing hardly any Spanish made me feel isolated, even in crowds. A weeks worth in Guatemala last winter really helped, but next trip I'm doing the emersion route for two or three weeks.
The other 10% are sociopaths , serial killers and KLR riders. You wont get much sympathy from them.
Did you know that in men as we age the first hearing range to go is the one women’s voices fall into? There is a god and he wants us to be happy.
