hi there,

wish to travel to south america.
hope to visit Argentina, Brazil, and frankly anywhere else en-route :)

unfortunately i only have roughly a month and a half available between july and mid-august.

trying to save like mad at the moment and dont have any clue of how much this will possibly cost aside from the flights?

i want to do it on a budget and not really fussed about being too comfortable,, just want to go there for a break and experience some of the world before i get stuck into uni

anyone been there before? have any places i must visit? recommend any good hostels?

anything that will help me plan my trip would be greatly appreciated.

To begin: Brazil has a sticky visa policy with Canada, the US and Great Britain. Best you look into and solve this before you leave.

Argentina has implemented a reciprocity fee exactly like Chile´s. The fee is NOT a visa. It is a " You do it to us, we do it to you" fee. Be ready for that.

BsAs is loaded with hotels....IN fact, most of Argentina is. They will cost about 15 a night for a hotel. I´m too old to stay in hostels and listen to the young ones have exactly the same conversation that I had when I was young, so I don´t know the prices there.

There. A beginning...Good luck on your trip.

I beg to differ on the price there. You certainly can find hotels that cost 25 dollars a night...and fifteen. I was there a month ago, and was able to find several hotels that cost that much. You just have to be obstinate.
