Explain something to me.

We all hear that people flee Central America because of "gang violence" and "domestic violence". Leaving the question as to why it requires emigration in order to escape "domestic violence" aside, why everybody seems to be so matter-of-fact that the closest place to seek relief from these problems is US? I mean, why go literally 1500 miles from El Salvador to US border through horrible Guatemala and almost as horrible Mexico when they can go only 250 miles in opposite direction to reach peaceful (and Spanish-speaking) Costa Rica? Or if Costa Rica doesn't tickle their fancy, there is similarly peaceful Panama next to it. Something doesn't add up here. Are we sure it's all about "violence" and not simply because of economics?
