Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Budgeting for South America

Although South America is a cheap destination once there. The more I look at it the longer I could be there. What budget should I be looking at?, I'm trying to get a handle on it, I don't know even how long I'll stay there. Sould I be putting limits on it. Can you try to do too much. I mean it's part of a RTW!

Hey

when I budgeted for SA when I was out there I realised that I could have stayed quite a bit longer and I was really generous with my daily budget! Unfortunately I couldn't change my flights so...

I budgeted 20 GBP a day which is wot... 29 EUROS roughly I reckon you could get a way with
2/3's that or even less if you do it on a proper shoestring! i.e without a lot of shopping which I'm afraid I'm highly prone to!!

When you say 2/3, is that two or three pounds. Because that is cheap!
Thanks

theres $1.90 in a pound, i guess two-thirds 20 pounds in dollars would be about $25
