Hello everybody,
i'm so happy i found this place. I'm Argentinian, but living in the US right now. I'm going back home in May/June/July and was wondering if i could do it by sea. I'd like to have the chance to stop at ports in different countries and explore a little.
Does anybody have ANY idea of how i can do this? I did a search on the internet, but found it even possible? is it safe? am i better off contacting individuals who have boats and are doing the same trip?

hola mariposa,
I dont think you will find a Freighter who takes passanger,and I doubt the would accept you because there are only man on this ships?!
You understand??
Why you dont take a ticket to Central America,travell down to Panama.check COPA Air for last minut flights to Cartagena/Colombia
or Quito/Ecuador and then go by bus down to Argentina?
You can stop where ever you like and it is inexpensiv.
sunny greetings,
