Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean 2 months and no idea!!

Hello all,

I am planning a trip (mid january '08 - mid march '08) only two months and i want to know what my best travel route may be. A couple of things i would like to do are macchu picchu (i realize it is the rain season), some scuba (not Galapagos too much $$$$), carnival in rio. what i thought would be ideal would be to start in cartagena, work down the west coast to santiago then head over to BA, argentina, and up to rio from there. I realize that much ground in that little time is stretching it thats why i am asking first. My travel times are only flexible to the point of either leaving earlier in Jan or later in Jan (bummer for me I know) so any tips would be very helpful. Also if anyone has any ideas as to a better destination for me for those months I would be open to that aswell, keeping in mind I have been through southeast asia and central america already.

thanks very much

Corey O
