Chile is the most expensive country in SA-figure $US 50/day minimum including transportation.

Costs depend on what type of transport and accomodation you are after. In Brazil I was spending about 15-20 Reals a night, plus food, transport, guides, entries etc.

Sure you don't want to try Argentina? At 3 pesos per dollar it is a fraction of what it costs in Chile. And the Andes look great from there, too. Try this site if you're interested in the northwest:

I spent $US 40 a day in Chile, Argentina and Bolivia in 2003 when I was there, and 5 of the 8 weeks I was down there was in Chile, so I think you can get by for less than others might have suggested.

I stayed at hotels with private bathrooms, ate at local, inexpensive restaurants, travelled mainly by bus (though I did book a few flights and did the Navimag trip which I don't figure into the above costs).
