5 months South America

Jump to last reply

Hi fellow travellers!
I am just beginning my planning to South America for 5 months next year and have no idea where to start. I have no idea how much much I will need however have been saving so should have plenty for this trip however am going to Europe after I leave. I aim aiming to come over early Feb and would love to start with Carnivale and finish with the Soccer World Cup but don't plan on staying for the whole thing.
I want to explore Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Uruguay. I dont want rush through it. I will do a few tours, particularly through the most unsafe places but would like your opinion on this too as at this stage am travelling on my own. I would love to know approx. costs for the whole time, best ways to get around (cheapest & best experience), hostes etc.
Any suggestions would be super helpful :)
Thank-you!
