I've been in Chile and Argentina. I stayed at hotels in a single room with private bathrooms. I ended up spending about $40 a day, though I spent most my time in Chile (which is more expensive than Argentina).

The cheapest I have heard of people spending is around $25 a day - staying in dorm-style hostels.

As for best time to visit - if you want to go into the mountains or down to Patagonia, you might want to consider Jan-Mar so that you get the austral summer.

Hi there,
I can give you some references of Peru,it's not expensive you can find hostels for 10 dollars and more...
The best time to visit here is May-October, it's dry season if you are planning to visit highland as Cusco and made Incas Trail or want to visit Arequipa and walk around the Colca Canon or visit the rainforest.
