Hey all. I would really like to see as much as i can whilst i am out in South America. Any help would be great.

Here is my itinerary;

UK-Lima (Fly)

Lima-Cusco (Fly)

Cusco-La Paz (Bus)

La Paz-Sao Paulo via Santa Cruz, Corumba and Campo Grande (Bus)

Sao Paulo-Recife via Rio, Belo Horizonte and Salvador (Bus or Train)

I haven't finalised the rest of my trip but i want to eventually end up in Mexico City to visit some friends... then fly home via the US.. Probably Orlando..

I am taking about £2000. Is this enough???

Thanks..

Harry.

Hi Harry.. you don't specify the amount of time you are intending to travel for, I think this would be helpful in order for people to answer your question..

Have a great trip, em :)

I would join and contact the Boots n All travel website, Google them, Latin budget specialists, also consult a travel agent..Chop Shop..Consolidator in London...best source to find them they advertise in Footprint Handbooks, Google them, published in UK, also this site Travellerspoint offers many travel services.

Brazil can be quiet expensive. It all depends on what activities you have planned. Will you eat out/drink much? Do you plan to do any tours? Will you be staying in budget hostels in dorm rooms? Also, how do you plan on getting to Mexico and then onto Orlando?

Answer these and I can probably give you a more accurate answer...

I am planning on entering Brazil around the 8th February. OK, i know for a fact February is the Carnival so i guess prices will be more expensive at this time. I have friends in Brazil mainly Sao Paulo, Belo and Recife so i have places to stay there. The rest of the time i will be using hostels. The only tours i will be taking will be in Rio and Recife i will be taking a trip to Natal.

With the question on getting to Mexico City... I have looked at many options and i may have to fly out of Sao Paulo...
