Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Planning a trip

i'm planning a trip to go from argentina to mexico throughout central and South America. My main worry about all of it is my flight ticket. It'll be my first trip on which I don't depart from the same location as I started.
What do you advise me to buy. Just a two way ticket and just let it expire, or are there any other solutions?

Thanks in advanced.

Normally you can buy a return ticket with the way you travel, so to Buenos Aires and from Mexico City.
Probably there are different airlines who fly both to BA and Mexico City, which normally makes a good deal.
Iberia for example.
And you don't have to know the specific return date, although changing it might involve a small amount of money.

I imagine that on this particular stretch, a non-European company is likely to be cheaper. Mexicana or LAN, for instance.

Hey. Iberia do a ticket from Madrid that will take you into B.A and out of Mexico. Once you arrive in South America you can change your exit point at anytime. I.e if you don't make it to Mexico (if you've run out of money or something) you can phone Iberia and they will change the ticket to where ever you want to leave from (i.e Costa Rica or wherever) for about 50 Euros....

If you have STA in your country they can tell you all about it...

I saw the offer on iberia. I didn't know that you could just chance your exit date at any time. Thats sure good to hear.
