I'll be in South America from the beginning of September to sometime in December 2006, then in Central America until the end of Jan 2007.
Its my first time travelling anywhere, despite having reached the ripe old age of 23, and I'll be going on my own, so any companionship would be gladly welcomed.
I will be in SA from October 2006 till around February / March 2007
Current plans are as follows:
Peru(October / November)
Brazil - Pantanal Region(december)
crossing back into Chile Lake District (january)
Brazil (Carnaval)(February / March)
Then heading up to Central America
Doing this solo so any company is more than welcome!
Argentina from June 13th - July 3rd.
Sucre, Boliva from July 3rd- August 7th
Guatemala for august
Cuba for october
Am about to embark on adventure to South America, taking my self to Rio on 30 June for a 17 day tour to Buenos Aires, then will make my way slowly, over land, to Bolivia then Peru and down to Chile, out of Santiago on 16 September.
If anyone is doing a similar route and would like to exchange some tips I would be delighted!
We're be in Rio for carnaval 2007 and then travelling south and up the west coast (hopefully as far as Mexico! money dependent!!) until June -there's 3 of us but all extra companions very welcome!
So many youngsters here! I'm 26 and it's only my first time backpacking. I envy the ones who are doing multiple months!
From June 17 onward I'm going to be solo-ing South America starting in Buenos Aires for a couple weeks. Then in no particular order I plan on visiting Montevideo, Iguazu, Asuncion, and Santiago de Chile, all by bus over the next 2-3 wks. I want to leave my itinerary flexible should any cool sites/persons present themselves along the way.

I arrived in Ecuador on 29th May, here studying and voluntering until the end off July. Then flying off to Peru for a month to spend some time around cusco.
Buses the rest of the way...
Chile (would like to catch end of ski season but no set plans. Thought Nov would be a good time to attempt Torres Del Paine)
Argentina (hoping to go whale watching and see some Penguins at Peurto Madryn before heading up to BA)
Brazil for new year and also want to take a trip to Salvador and maybe take up Capoeira!
Should be heading back to UK early Feb. Who knows, maybe i´ll have enough cash left to stay for carnival?!!
Mainly travelling alone so always pleased to make new amigos!
Hey: Here's what I got so far:
Arrive Guatemala mid October
THEN-in the New Year: anywhere, any route,10 months of SA
i will be leaving anywhere from ending of october to ending of november. i fly into roatan, honduras(i have family of friends there) and than from there i shall hopefully go to EVERY country in central and south America. I plan to be gone for 1- 3 years.
