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 will be going in December and tickets are not available yet? I want a sleeper seat. Anyone know cost? When online tickets become available? How the trip is?
Does anyone know if it's possible to take a bus from Nazca to Chivay? I haven't been able to find any information on it. So far, it seems I have to go to Arequipa first. Thanks in advance for your help

I am planning to do the W the first week of March and I am looking to buy a tent. The problem is I only have $150 to spend and I am afraid to buy a tent that will not hold up to the winds or rain of Patagonia and break mid-trip. Is getting a fair tent at this price a pipe dream or should I just rent one at Puerto Natales? If it is not, does anyone have any recommendations? Everything that is being recommended is like $300.

Hey all, sorry if this has been asked before but I did try and search with no luck.
I am wanting to do a tour of South America. I am wanting to do it over about 3 weeks [ I know it's not super long but I get limited time off work !]
I'd like the tour to include Machu Picchu, Iguazu Falls, Salar de Uyuni [salt flats], Christ the Redeemer, Copacabana, Cusco, La Paz and I am really not sure at this stage where else. Happy for recommendations !
I am quite happy for it to be a tour with budget…
