Hi guys,

I'm lucky enough to have about 5 weeks available between mid July-mid August this year and have decided I would like to do a bit of travelling around South America. I am at that 'blank sheet of paper' stage in my planning and cant really decide where start, what to include and where to end up! I've tossed up a few ideas including starting in Buenos Airies or starting in Rio but like I said, can't really settle on anything at the minute!

I wondered if anyone who has experienced travel in S.America would be able to advise on any good routes that I could realistically complete in my 5 week timeframe, what could I include along the way and really any general advice that I might find useful.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks a lot :).

[b]hey, I think it depends on what kind of holiday you want to have. if you like big cities, small towns, going out every night, which countries you want to visit (I don't know where you are from or if you know, but south america is big!).

i don't think you will be able to visit all the countries in this part of the continent, so you should really decide what do you want to do and where you want to go.

i'm from Argentina, so ask me if you want inside info about my country (i live in a city called Rosario, not in Buenos Aires)

good luck on your trip!
