I'm planning on going to South America at the end of February until mid September - I want to do a month in a language school in Quito then do various volunteer placements in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, and maybe a wee trip to Chile and Argentina if I have money or time left. I've found reliable volunteer placements which provide accommodation, but I'd like to know the cost of food, drink, etc in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia (particularly Quito, Cusco and Sucre) and also how much travelling between these countries costs. Any info about Chile and Argentina would be much appreciated too
Also, what jabs do you need for South America? I'm not really a wildernessy person so I'm not planning on going wandering into any rainforests..
