1a simple search on currencies should reveal your answer
note: exchange rates will fluctuate so it would be hard for anyone to predict which currency will give you the best rate in the future.

6Firstly don't take Stirling to Central America. Its not a demand currency and tourist exchange rates will be poor. Use ATM's and take some USD for cash on arrival and transiting the US. Using ATM's means you have no control over the rate so as other posters have mentioned its really about "bangs for your bucks". All CA countries, even Costa Rica, have cheap options but those considered the "cheapest" are Guatemala and Nicaragua and if you travel "low frills" you'll find the region generally inexpensive by European standards...

11I heard Belize is expensive by central america Standards.
I found that the weakest currency is Vietnamese Dong.But hey
,is Vietname is so cheap like Laos.
And if we will compare central american backpacking costs,CA will be much more expensive.
I was surprised by Africa prices.
Luanda ,which is a capital of Angola is most expensive city in the world?
Africa is poorest region on earth.
And we getting news about raped western girls in India,and beaten their boyfriends by angry mob.
I think India and Arab countries time is over.
Arab countries becoming dangerous,and backpackers eyes now looking to the eastern europe and greece with spain.
Yes Europe is still very expensive,and Brasil with its infilation becoming expensive too.
Is Central america is cheaper than South America as a whole region?
I guess central america is more dangerous.

Belize can be expensive and is one of the more expensive CA countries. I don't remember finding beer for much under $3 so I've no idea where #10 got his fab meal with beer for $3!
On the classic backpacking trails, Asia and CA will be a similar cost overall but Asia will be bigger bangs for your bucks- particularly food.
CA's less expensive countries (Nicaragua, Guatemala) are certainly cheaper than the developed countries of SA but there are still some value options in countries like Bolivia & Peru.
CA is not more dangerous than SA.

13Normally africa for backpackers is no go area.
Its dangerous and expensive with exception of Morocco Namibia ,maby Gabon and Botstvana ,and maby South Africa.
But Egypt and South africa became crime ridden countries on these days.
World backpacking traditions is switching off from South East asia to central america.
I see many flights to cancun or Cuba or Dominic Republic for just £240-290 return with Thomson or Thomas Cook on Late Deals section.
When Air Asia closed its flights from London and Paris to Kuala Lumpur,they ended cheap flights era to Soutj East Asia.
Because Asian currencies is getting stronger and stronger,its getting more expensie for us Europeans to fly and to maintain high backpacking standards.
Central and South America ,is still new,and many unfounded sites is on the way.
Central America & South america is much closer to Europe and is Europeanised ,as the Spain with Portugal colonised new land with its own people .
Now we see Venezuela currency devalvuation
.It means that travelling inside must be even cheaper .Unleaded Petrol or Diesel is only 9 pi or £ 0.09 /liter
When i visited Belarus on its currency devalvation crisis ,i got nice hotel foe just £3.80 per night,and rented 2 bedroom flat for $ 50 week,including bills.It was about £35 .And $ got 60% more expensive just in overnight.
My friend who visited Argentina on its famous crisis in 2001 wrote me that Argentina was so cheap,and amazing with good food,nice steak,restaurans on dirt cheap prices . But it was on 2001.And now Argentina is again,expensive country.
Same was with Russia in 1997,with South Asia in 1998,when these countries was ridden by credit crunch,and their currencies was very weak ,and undervalued .
4 years ago Zimbabve had biggest hyperinfilation in history,but i woul not go there even for free.
Which countries will give British pound holders,or euro,or $ holders best deal at this time?
