Spanish Speaking Countries
The best and only way to become fluent in another language is going ABROAD!!! I'm trying to find the best countries besides Spain that I can live in for a while and really practice my Spanish. Who's with me?!
Let's Consider: Development (is the country developed like the US, UK, Spain etc.) Difficulty (beginner or intermediate) Accent (easy to understand) Vosotros, Ustedes, and Tu (Not all Spanish-speakers use them) Caribbean, Latin America, Central America, Spain?
Where would you go? I need some ideas. :)

Developed: Spain/Andorra> Chile/Argentina/Uruguay > Costa Rica/Cuba [both not as rich as other countries, but safer and well developed in important things].
Difficulty: It is identical if you don't know the language. If you are used to a specific dialect, try countries with that dialects or similar varieties. I.e.: If you know Mexican Spanish, try Bolivia, Peru or Central America, not Puerto Rico or Argentina.
After doing lots of research considering development, difficulty of dialect, and my standing (beginner-intermediate) I'd choose between:
Costa Rica, Perú, Ecuador, and Colombia
These countries have an easier and slower dialect for beginners.
The more difficult ones (and futher away) would be:
Chile, Argentina, y Republica Dominicana
These dialects are faster and more difficult to understand (Especially Republica Dominicana). Most likely for intermediate Spanish speakers.
Thanks for all of your input everybody :)
