Hey, just wondering if anyone has done this trip before, and how easy it was and how long it took? Im arriving in Mexico City in late October and want to make it down to Rio for the Carnival in February, so this gives me roughly 3 and a half month to travel though Guatemala, el Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, then im kind of stuck here, should I travel trough Colombia (is it safe) or fly to Ecuador/ Venezuela? And then make my way down to Rio, to be honest if I travel to Venezuela then to Rio it just looks like vast amounts of rain forest? Any recommendations for cheap Amazon trips that might take me close to Rio from Venezuela.

Iv never been travelling in south America so don’t know how transport link are between these countries, so any advice would be much appreciated, also any tips on what to see and where to stay would not go a miss as well, I will be travelling on a budget of roughly £20 per day ($40 US Dollars)

Hope some one can help

i would say if you went strait through it would take every bit of one month. difficult parts in south east colombia and north west brazil.

id go through colombian equador peru bolivia into brazil.
