im thinking of doing a 6 week trip from lima to rio, is this a good route i would have liked to have gone further south but cash and time dont allow, basicly want to see some inca remains etc, the amazon and rio, the thing is were doing like a return flight from houston texas, maybe fly from texas to lima then back to texas from rio?? but im open to any other short but packed routes, were two 22-23 yr old males from scotland, looking for a great fun filled time but seeing some awsome sights too.
be planning it fro around end of march to april 2009, planning to stay in hostels etc, and not bothered to take th bus, basicly wanting to meet as many people as pos and have a great time!
ANY ideas would be great
regards
scott:)

Hi,
There are 5-10 similar posts every week.
If you want good answers then you have to ask good questions. I tell people all the time that you need to be more specific. What are you looking to get out of this trip? What kind of money are you able to spend? what are your interests? ect....
One suggestion I can make is to try and hook up with Spirit Airlines! You can save loads of money (up to more than half off)! I know you can pick up a connection From San Antonio to LIma. Well worth a trip to site.
I'll try to get back to you if you can posts some more specific Q's.

Pura Vida,
