I am 24y/o and am on a hunt for a travel buddy to join me in exploring the sites and sounds of central/south America. Preferably I would like to get out there in January or February 2012 for 6 months, although im aware that time is ticking by, gah!

My thoughts so far are to fly into Mexico in early 2012, and then travel all the way south through as many different awesome places as possible, including a fair amount of time in Peru, before arriving in Bolivia in July/August time. Im also keen to get across to Cuba for a bit if possible - it sounds like a crazy place!

I’m up for some serious adventuring, socialising and, I expect, sampling of plenty of the local cervesa (or tequila or whatever they drink around those parts..), preferably with some like-minded people who are as excited about this traveling malarky as me!

I would love to hear from anyone that is planning a similar sort of trip.

hi pippa, i think were both trying to do the same thing which is cool, im 22 english guy in california at the moment,so rather than flying,i feel driving is a much better way to explore and gives you much more freedom to do what you want so i have a van all kitted out with a bed and other essentials, um i dont have a specific plan just that i need to leave mid to early jan and would feel more comfortable we a companion so let me know if your interested so we can discuss and come up with some sort or trip plan thanks alex

Hey guys! I'll be arriving in Buenos Aires on Jan 20th 2012, will probably spend a month in Argentina and then want to check out the Carnival in Rio, travel around Bolivia, from there fly to Colombia and bus back down across Ecuador, Peru and Chile.. I have a flight from Santiago to NZ on may 20th!
I'll be travelling alone, and will be very much looking forward to meeting all sorts of people, see all sorts of sights, learn some Spanish along the way and experience all sorts of party scenes!
facebook me if you want to stay in touch, maybe we can meet somewhere along the way!

cheers :)

this all sounds epic!Im a 20yearold female, I am also very interested in hitting the road soon to travel south america/central, do a little volunteering, see all the best beaches and party, i am hesitant to go alone though, would be super interested in a fellow companion or two!
