Hi I'm about to head to South America and I'm looking for some travel advice, I'm looking to spend about 10 days in Argentina before heading to Brazil. I will only have about 5 days in Brazil before flying home. I was wondering if anyone had advice on the best place to fly out of Argentina to Brazil. Obviously the capitals are an obvious choice, but I was just wanting to see if anyone else out there had some advice or ideas, or if the majority think flying in and out of each capital will be the easiest.
TIA :)

This Web site can help in your planning:

It's difficult to offer suggestions since you don't provide enough details of your trip, including your interests. I looked at your travel map and you're covering a lot of territory for a trip that begins in September 2017 and ends two years later.

Know that flights between countries in South America can be expensive. There are exceptions, such as those offered by Sky Airline, a low-cost carrier based in Chile. Flights within a country, such as Brazil, are more reasonable. Know, too, that some large metropolitan areas are served by more than one airport. This applies to Buenos Aires, Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro.

If you're indeed traveling in South America for two years, then a combination of overland travel, flights and some ferries works best. But if your time is limited -- say a few weeks -- then you'll need to fly to cover the great distances on your map.

It's a shame you're planning only five days in Brazil and 10 days in Argentina. But if that's how much time you have, then one idea would be to spend some days in Buenos Aires, make your way to Puerto Iguazu, cross the border at the falls to Foz do Iguacu, then fly to Sao Paolo and/or Rio de Janeiro.
