I am heading to South America next April. It has always been a dream and i'm finally doing it ... but i only have 5 weeks up my sleeve and i want to fit in as much as possible. I fly in and out of BA and am keen to include Argentina, Iguazu Falls, Rio, Cuzco and machu picchu, as well as the amazon if possible.
I was thinking its best to head up towards Rio first but am totally open to ideas and am happy to start heading in Peru direction if thats a better option???
Would love some ideas so I can start researching and planning an itinery. If you could provide best modes of transport from each destination to the next that would be AMAZING too!! And if i have forgotten any places that cannot be missed please advise.
Also, how safe is it travelling alone?
How much Spanish do you need to know?
What sort of budget would you need for the above with moderate spendings?
Thanks a bunch!!! Excited to hear you thoughts!:
