For the benefit of everyone dropping by the Brazil branch for the first time, please read this FAQ first. And I hope there can be some sort of way to moderate the thread to keep it updated and clean. I know there are some AWESOME regular contributors here who enjoy giving advice; I feel this thread can really help to condense the information available.
I'll go first, with some general thoughts from the South America FAQ. Many thank to Apollo for starting that thread and for a great idea…

Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice on our Patagonia trip next year - my main concerns are transport availability in late March/early April and whether we have enough time/money for what we'd like to do.
We're flying from BA into El Calafate on 27th March, traveling overland to Santiago, where we fly out from on 16th April.
After seeing the glacier we'd like to head up to Bariloche via El Chalten. I'm wondering where people would advise us to cross over into Chile to get up to Santiago, and…

Does anyone know if it's necessary for me to purchase the $395 volunteer visa or if I can possibly get away with the $100ish student visa option. (Obviously I'd much prefer that…
