Hi Everyone,

Im travelling to Rio in November (from London) and from there I plan to go to Bolivia/Peru/Ecuador/Colombia/Venezuela and back to down to Rio for the carnival. Anyone leaving or travelling there at that time? x

The month of November is enough time to see some of Brasil and that's it-your itinerary is far too ambitious.

I agree to Sam, your travel plan is not flexible. In case you need to stay at a place for some more time, it won't be possible, this itinerary will make you go mad.

Your original post sounds like you're going for one month.

Phew! I was getting worried - 4 months to do all that will be fine then?

"... 4 months to do all that will be fine then?..."

Depends what your definition of "to do" is. Everyone's style of travel is different... some people are fine with a few days in a huge, complicated city with millions of inhabitants and centuries of history, others might take weeks/months to truly immerse themselves. If you were getting off the beaten path Brazil and Colombia alone could easily take the entire 4 months.

4 months is enough time to hit many of the usual Gringo Trail highlights and to get a very basic feel for those 6 countries, but that's a HUGE amount of real estate to cover so don't kid yourself that you'll be getting anything more than a superficial sense of the main tourist attractions.

Have fun.

Cheers,
Terry
