Im going to SA in a couple of weeks, from Norway. Im travelling alone, and its my first "real" travel (meaning not just holiday ) In SA I have about 9 weeks and the plan is to start in Buenos Aires, then go to Chile, Peru, before I head to Pipa, Brasil (just by Natal) to live with some friends there.
I really want to do to the inca trail and I have a couple of questions that I hope somebody can help me with.
1) Booking in advance or when you get there? That is the question.. I have heard and read different things. That you have to book in advance to get a place in a group, as it fills up many many months earlier. Also Ive heard its no problem, and that if you book the tour in Cucso, its a whole lot cheaper as well. Anyone knows?
And what about the backpack. Do you have to bring the backpack youre travelling with up the trail? Is it maybe possible to leave it in a hotel/hostel you live, and bring a smaller backpack?
2) My second question is regarding an Amazon trip. Im insecure what place/country to take it from. Im thinking Peru og Brasil, since there are countries Im going to. Any advice here?
Im going to do the Inca trail ca beginning of april, and the Amazonas after that. Anyone else doing these things that maybe want to meet up?
