Oaxaca is usually a great place but there is a lot of political unrest there right now. I've heard it's a lot cheaper in Guatemala-- there are a number of language schools in Xela.

I would agree with Oaxaca--lots of readily available language schools, lots of easy starting dates. But right now, politically unstable?

Camping on the beach at Sayulita.

Oaxaca, but I'd check out Guatemala also. I had a very good experience in Antigua (and now, finally, am pretty fluent). If you're of the more 'alternative' mindset, check out Lake Atitlan (San Pedro, San Marcos). Guatemala is also A LOT safer than Oaxaca right now, but it's all relative down there.

agree on oaxaca and xela. i studied in xela and its really cheap....dont go to antigua if you dont want to be around a million gringos... xela also has a huge international scene, but its bigger than antigua....

san pedro is cool as well and lake atitlan is amazing, but be prepared for an intense hippie scene.... like where phish tour left off
