Help with planning a 2.5 week trip to South America in Sept 2014

Jump to last reply

Hi, My husband and I are just starting to think about our holidays for 2014. We will have 3 weeks holidays in September and would like to spend 2.5 weeks touring the highlights of Peru, Argentina and possibly popping into Chile or Uruguay or Brazil. We are not bothered about water sports or horse riding. We like scenery, meeting locals (but not homestays or hostels - we like a bit of comfort), walking (light trekking), good food and wine. We don't have a very big budget as we expect that our flights from Ireland will be expensive. We don't mind the odd overnight bus or train journey. Not that bothered about markets.
We definitely want to see Machu Picchu and Igazu Falls. Then perhaps places like Ollantaytambo and Cusco or Arequipa in Peru, Salta, Buenos Aires, Bariloche or others in Argentina. Recommendations for Chile or Uruguay or Brazil would be appreciated or maybe day trips from Buenos Aires to somewhere in Uruguay or from Mendoza across the border into Chile.
Also, what kind of weather should we expect at that time of year?
I would appreciate any help you can give me in trying to organise this trip. Is it too much for 18-19 days. What should I definitely leave out? We would like to see as much as we can while we are there. I haven't priced any flights yet but expect that flying between Peru and Argentina would be quite costly. Also would you recommend going to Peru or Argentina first or would it make any difference. If it works out too expensive, we may have to concentrate on either Peru OR Argentina.
Thank you in advance for your help!
Martina.
