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…
I am in the (very) early stages of making rough itineraries and listing must see spots for my trip to Peru.
I have been going back and forth about Lake Titicaca, and reading that to make it worth it to go out of your way, you want to do a couple of nights and a home stay. I'd be happy to do that if it's worth it, but I have another factor to weigh, and it is that I get quite sea-sick. This is on ferry's or any slower moving boat big or small. The only exception is generally speed boats…
I had a wonderful five weeks in Ecuador just recently but one impression that really wore on me was all the family members who live there telling me to watch this and watch that because of thieves. They obviously were concerned for my safety and I complied but I didn't see the problem.
So I'm asking- did you get robbed while in Ecuador?
I am planning on travelling South America by myself for six months next year, and just had a few questions I thought I should ask quickly. Firstly, am I still likely to enjoy travelling by myself? The closest I've done to this is going away for a month with my mates interrailing across Europe, so don't really know what to expect. I am a 21 year old male, so not worried about the safety side of things, just whether it will still be an enjoyable experience by myself.
Secondly, I haven't put…
Hello! me my brother and a friend are taking a graduation trip to Argentina (from Italy ndr).
We are going to land in Buenos Aires on october the 5th (early in the morning) and we will be leaving on october the 27th (late at night). We are very determined on seeing as much as we can so we planned a pretty extensive tour that will require quite the hours spent on bus rides and (hopefully not many) flights.
Our plan is to stay 3 day in Buenos Aires, and leave on the 7th at night time to…
First time backpacker here.
October 9th - January 10th Ill be attempting to see and do as much as I can in South America. Obviously not enough time. But nevertheless enough time to see a lot :)
Can anyone tell me if they think this is possible. Obviously travelling between cities and countries will take up a lot of the time due to the vastness of the continent. But sure Ill do my best. I'll be flying/taking buses between places.
There are places in Brazil I'll forget about if I…
My wife and I are planning a trip to Argentina this October. We like our hiking (not Everest!), history, and just seeing different parts of the country. If you had a month to spend in Argentina, what route would you take?
This trip has come up at short notice, so my research is limited. As of now, my thoughts are to do a circular route, like as follows:
Has anyone any thoughts on this? Is there anything on this path you would…
