Hi :)

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

79 3625

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 .

Thank you
