Suggested spending money

Hi I'm spending 58 nights (59 days) in South America from June-August.

I'm travelling with a tour group so all my accommodation, 1-2 meals a day and almost all my activities paid for. I'd just like to get and idea of what I may need for daily spending 1-2 (mostly simple meals) and shopping money however I'm not a big shopper.

I'll be travelling through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and parts of Chile/Argentina

I am confused. You have tagged this post, Argentina, Bolivai, Brazil and Chile yet you ask about Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. Which is it?

In terms of cost of meals etc. These will vary dramatically from country to country, places within those countries and the type of place you decide to eat. Ecuador and Bolivia are very cheap. Peru a little more expensive and Chile the most expensive. In Argentina , check out Avrooster's post re the blue dollar which will help reduce costs

A simple, filling meal at a street stall or market in most places in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia can be had for 2-3 USD a similar meal will cost significantly more in mid range restaurants in say Buenos Aires or Cusco. Not sure where you are from but costs are much, much cheaper than Western Europe or North America

As for shopping, I haven't a clue what you might buy so can't comment.

Have you tried asking your tour operator for guidance? They should be able to help based on their past experience. People like Intrepid Travel used to put I for like this on their trip notes so it may be worth checking their website.
