There's a group of four handsome, adventurous, yet skint lads looking forward to 3 exciting months travelling around Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador.
We don't want to live in squalor but are by no means expecting comfort, we will be going everywhere by bus, and have already set aside the relevant funds to do some of the classic trips.
So with this in mind, does an average of $45 per day sound a reasonable budget across the the 3 countries?
Many thanks in advance!

2I would say this is a good budget because you will have days when you spend more when a tour such as Machu Picchu is included or when you have to travel and days where you will spend less. Bolivar is very cheap as mentioned above. In Ecuador for example a hostel will cost you $8-10, breakfast $2-5, lunch $1.50-$5 and dinner $3-$7. Bus Travel costs about $1/hour of travel since gas in Ecuador is subsidized.
