4 countries but open to suggestionsHi,
We have decided to head to South America next month. It is about spontaneous so my research has begun, but is still limited.
I have narrowed it down to 4 countries to see, but I am not sure how feasible this will be in a matter of 2 months. The counties are: Peru, Columbia, Argentina, and Brazil. Now these all can change (except Brazil is definite) if you guys have other suggestions. My interests primarily involve around nightlife, food, and music. Beaches would be great but I imagine the weather to be cold in May-July.
Can someone advise if this itinerary is realistic to be done in 2 months? Is Beunos Aires really out of the way for a short period? If yes, does anyone have other suggestions? I am flying in from LAX and it seems like Peru and Columbia are the cheapest countries to fly into. However, how are budget airlines in South America? Are they as cheap as say, Air Asia/Ryan Air? Lastly, how much do you suggest bringing to last 2 months in these 4 countries?
Any help is appreciated. Thank you Allen ad

2I'd give B.A. a pass and include Ecuador in my plans instead. You could land in Lima and end up in Rio without making a big detour for Buenos Aires. You definitely won't be heading down to Patagonia, given the cold, the distance, the relative expense, and the lack of what you're interested in.
Given your interests, you should find some good beach life in Ecuador and Colombia - and, well, Brazil is Brazil!
Good luck in your quest for that party vibe!

3Four random countries, as they seem, are at least one too many for two months.
If you like beaches, and Brazil is definite in your itinerary, you might want to go north, to Natal.
Other two countries that you might include in your trip could be Peru and Ecuador. Instead of Peru you might consider Colombia, if beaches and nightlife are your priorities. Food isn't that great in Colombia though, but there is plentiful of fruits and juices.
There are no cheap airlines like AirAsia or Ryanair in South Am, so flying will add to your costs considerably.
