Im planning to travel around South America for a year in January. I have just qualified as a teacher and would like to put this to use whilst Im away. I have a few questions...

1)Can you advise if the north or south is more suitable to fly into in December?
2)Has anyone else done any teaching in S.America and how did you find it?
3) Are there any must do's whilst im away?
4) Im flying from London whats the Cheapest way?

Any Information will help ...........

Many thanks,

for cheapest way see your local travel agent/flight centre.

Deals are ongoing and change daily so without looking them up for yourself you will never know.

I have ended up flying with Delta and it's a great deal which I got at the Flight Centre. It's an open jaw ticket from Edinburgh - Rio and Lima - Edinburgh. £800. Pretty decent. From London you are likely to get it even cheaper I'd have thought.

for cheap flights in Dezember you have to hurry up,CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR is the time where flights are full bookt and mostly more expensiv,
for many countrys is December/Jan. also high saison.
