I'm going to South America for 3 months from February to May 2016 , I'm going to start in Brazil then proceed to Argentina , Chile , Bolivia and Peru ,I'm wondering what's a good budget for backpacking these countries , I know they all cost different I have a bought rough guide handbook for South America and I have been reading a lot on the internet so I came with the following budget ..Please help with it I think this budget is just for accommodation , food and transport its exclude all the tours flat salts , dessert safari ect and long distance buses .
Days Countries US $ Daily Total $
12 Brazil 60 720
10 Argentina 50 500
20 Chile 50 1000
15 Bolivia 35 525
22 Peru 40 880
I'm planning to go to Patagonia in Chile as well and I would like to get option on the budget for it , I'm definitely not doing a tours like 5 days hiking , I will do it myself or do day tours .
