11 Days in CA - Where to go?

Jump to last reply

3 girlfriends and I are planning a trip to Central America in late August/early September. After taking out the travel days we should have about 11 days there.

We're trying to figure out where to go, and could use some advice - it's so hard to pick a place! We were initially attracted to Belize, but got turned off after seeing how pricey it is. The other countries we've been looking at are Honduras, Panama and Nicaragua.

Here are some of the things we're looking for:
1) BEACHES: This is the most important - we'd like 4-5 days of solid beach time, since 3 of us live in SF and it is not exactly tropical during the summer. :) Preferably with a cool beach-y nightlife included.
2) SIGHTSEEING: We get bored with nothing but beaches, so we want to see some cool things - bonus points for ruins. Cute towns are also good.
3) OUTDOOR: We're not hardcore with the outdoor activities and trekking, but a cool hike or two would be nice.

Is more than one country feasible (on a budget) in only 11 days? From my brief research it looked like flights were pricey between countries, but I'd love to get some other opinions.

Thanks!
