I am traveling around central america to various countries, and I plan on doing this for a long time, so I need this translated into spanish so I can hit up various places in latin america that I might want to stay at.  Revisions are welcome about how to pitch bitcoin better, as I'm not sure what options there are for converting them, or what the advantages are when it seems that a lot of people don't even have a smart phone here.  My spanish is too terrible to attempt this myself at the moment.

Hello I will be in _______ for several weeks starting next week, and I am looking for a hostel that accepts payment in bitcoin, but I can't find one there.  If you want to be the first, you get my business!

 If you haven't heard of it before, bitcoin is getting very popular with travelers because it is decentralized so it is possible to instantly pay anyone using a smart phone without any fees or currency conversions, and it's more secure than carrying around cash.  It's widely accepted in the US and Europe now, and it would be good to see it spread to Central America too.  Additionally, it has more than doubled in value this year, so I like keeping my money in bitcoins instead of cash:) To learn more, go on ________.org

SealsWithClubs poker room has  over 400 players online. Buy in from .01 to 60btc.      BTCSportsMatch lets you bet sports with vig free lines!  Best kept secret in bitcoin....          LocalBitcoins.com is very user-friendly now for bank transfers.  You don't have to live close to trade when in the same currency area.           
Electrum client is awesome. Try it. And please stop sending bitcoins to sites run by security newbies, or don't complain when you lose everything.

I'm sure it is easy to find a hostel in BA willing to accept anything besides Argentine pesos:)

Una traducción rápida, quizás alguien más pueda refinarla un poco más (a quick translation, maybe somebody else could refine it a little more):

Si no ha escuchado nada antes, bitcoin se está volviendo popular entre los viajeros porque es decentralizado así que es posible pagarle instantáneamente a cualquiera usando un smart phone sin comisiones ni conversiones de monedas, y es más seguro que llevar efectivo por allí. Ya se acepta ampliamente en Estados Unidos y Europa, y sería bueno verla difundirse por América Central también. Además, a aumentado su valor a más del doble este año, así que me gusta tener mi dinero en bitcoins en lugar de efectivo:) Para conocer más visite _____.org

Macho, yo creo que hasta el google translator le puede dar más vida a ese texto.

Seth, here you have a more coloured translation of your text:

Quote
¡Hola! Durante varias semanas, empezando la semana que viene, voy a estar en ---- y estoy buscando un hostal allí que acepte pagos en bitcoin, pero no he conseguido encontrar ninguno. Si usted quiere ser el primero podemos hacer negocios.

Por si no lo ha oído antes, bitcoin se está convirtiendo en un medio de pago muy popular entre los viajeros, al ser descentralizado y permitir el pago instantáneo a cualquiera utilizando un smartphone. Además de evitar cualquier tipo de comisión o conversión entre monedas, es más seguro que desplazarse con efectivo. Actualmente bitcoin está ampliamente aceptado en los EE.UU. y en Europa, y sería beneficiosa su difusión también por Centroamerica. Además, durante este año ha más que duplicado su valor, por lo que prefiero tener mi dinero en bitcoins en vez de en efectivo. Si quiere conocer más, visite esta web ----.org.

Thanks guys!  What website should I use at the end?  Is there a good spanish website explaining bitcoin?  Or should I just use bitcoin.org?

For Spanish speakers, probably the best blog talking about bitcoin is elbitcoin.org. Majamalu is making a wonderful work there, thanks maja Wink
