Can you go through Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil in 3 months? I'm very clueless and simple!

What's the average amount of time people have travelled to South America?

Depending on what you want to do in the places you visit, 3 months will do!

because brasil and argentina are huge, these two alone 3 months isnt enough, considering the distances. Rio to northern brasil is 3000kms and the best beaches are in the north. Argentina - Buenos aires, Mendoza, Bariloche and the tip of argentina is over 4000kms one way.

You certainly can see many parts of these countries in three months...No problem at all. You will get a lot of the sense of them. Just know that you are reading the Reader's Digest of the country...No, the Cole's Notes. YOu are not reading the book. But you can get a sense of these places without a problem at all. Have fun, don't let 'em get you down.

we´ve just spent about 5 and a half weeks doing this trip. Frantic at times with little rest and we didn´t get to see everything that we would have liked. A very cool trip none the less, cusco and peru are not to be missed.

Hi I'm planning to do an overland from Santiago down south thru patagonia and all the way up to Rio (hopefully by end of this year) where I'll be leaving UK for good.
I would have about 6 months to burn, and I believe it's do able.
However, I'm abit worry on the overland bits. Is it quite straight forward when doing booking for coach tickets and doing the transition point? Also is it safe?

Tentative routes plan:

-Santiago, Pucon, Bariloche
-El Chalten, Los Glaciares NP, El Calafate, Moreno Glacier, Torres del Paine NP
-Torres del Paine NP, Punta Arenas, Magellan Straits, Beagle Channel, Ushuaia
-Valdes Peninsula, Puerto Madryn, Buenos Aires
-Buenos Aires, Colonia, Montevideo, Salto, San Ignacio, Jesuit Ruins
-Iguazu, Bonito
-Pantanal Wetlands, Campo Grande, Rio de Janeiro
- Will fly to Havana, Cuba from Rio
