    Can't speak for Central America, (only been to Panama), but in South America, (not been into any of the Guianas - but all the others), the only place I heard Portugese was Brazil.
    Well maybe I phrased that badly. They're not used side-by-side in every country, in fact now I'm thinking not to use side-by-side at all. There are places other than Brazil, but I don't think any countries use both right now.

    That's as if you'd hear Dutch somewhere else in South America than in Suriname.

    In South America, other than Brazil, you'll be likely to be less understood than you will in Angola, with Portugese.
