My first backpacking trip to Latin America. Need help! ?

Question by apachedileo: My first backpacking trip to Latin America. Need help! ?
Looking to start my first backpacking trip through Latin America.

I was hoping to find some help with choosing a nice place to start. Somewhere were its easier and friendlier for this kind of trip and with possibly more people doing the same that could help me along the way.
I dont want to feel like in an “all inclusive cancun resort” and i would like to experience cool new things, i wanna try a variety of things, like spend time at the beach, snorkeling, checking out the sites and meeting new interesting people.
I was looking into Belize and/or Guatemala, but im open to ideas for better places… Altho i’m hoping i get to visit all these places sometime in the future.

Im planning on a 2 to 3 week trip and since its the first time i go i guess my budget is pretty open till i get more used to it.
Any help i welcomed.

If it’s raw popularity that you care about, then beach resorts like Cancun and Los Cabos will win hands down.

If it’s in the significance of the destination, I’d say Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Iguacu, Macchu Pichu, Mexico City, etc.
