I am traveling solo for my first time to Central America backpacking for one month through Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Guatemala. I am from Canada (Saskatchewan if we're getting particular lol), and was wondering what most people do with their cell phones?
Do you even take it with you? Should I get a long distance plan? Should I just buy a cell phone there? How do people access social media, etc?
A little more info: I am not tied to my phone so am fine with leaving it in Canada, but am just curious what most people do. I have an iPhone and iPad, but not sure what to bring. I planned on logging my trip through Instagram most likely and probably chatting on Skype to my parents the odd time and/or send them some text messages. I also have a GoPro camera for pictures/videos.
Just wondering what is the norm for backpackers and cellphones/technology. Any recommendations??
