Has anyone purchased fights once they are already in S. America??

I'm planning on going to Peru and Bolivia from July to August 2006. How much can i expect to pay (in Bolivia) for a one-way ticket from La Paz to Lima?? I've looked online but the tickets are really pricey. A roundtrip from Lima to Cusco actually cost me cheaper.

another thing I'd like to add...

I'm a female that's going to be traveling alone going from La Paz back to Lima. How safe or unsafe is it for me to travel by bus or train instead of flying back? How much and how long is the trip?

Try looking at an airpass. everal of the S. American airlines offer them.
Another alternative is a RTW ticket covering a couple of continents. You get 6 flights per continent i think
