I am hoping to spend 3 months to 1 year in South America with my 8 year old daughter. We're no strangers to travel and have just spent 5 weeks travelling Africa on a self made plan, staying as close to local life as possible (including living amid the Masai, staying on a Wildlife pathway and staying in a shanty town). My daughter thrived and has really caught the travel bug.
Can anyone help me out with any of the following please? ;
(Anywhere in South America considered)
Cheap accomodation (even lodging or house sitting)
A way to get involved in local life
Voluntary work (or ideally, paid work) that we could do together (maybe I could work at a school which my daughter could attend)
An idea of food costs
Thankyou very much
