Crellston and Others

Jump to last reply

This time we are really retiring!

Just got back from SEA and back at work and already planning our retirement trip next fall to South America.

Mid-sixties, active, healthy, husband speaks ok Spanish.

Have been following Crellston's adventure and would like some advice.

1. Is Lima a good entrance city (best use of our miles).

2. We like the idea of a one way ticket so we can be flexible. Will this be a problem when entering various SA countries?

3. We plan on at least 3-6 months. Is that enough time to see a good bit?

4. We will need at least a couple of "rest stops" where we spend a week or more. Any suggestions?

5. Loaded question but ideas on budget? No high end hotels but smaller hotels, guesthouse, BnB. Perhaps an apartment in our rest up areas.

6. We plan on leaving in October. Any downside to that?

7. For those of you who have spent prolonged time in SA, would you do it again?

Any suggestions appreciated as we start the planning process. Thank you.
