Hi there, I am planning on visiting South America late next year for no longer than 6 months (starting in Venezuela). I was wondering do I need a visa for this short period of time and if so how do I go about it? I will be seeing Venezuela, Brazil and Ecuador on my South American adventure Also, does anyone know of a typical amount you would spend out there per day (not including accommodation)? I would appreciate any advice. I am an extravagent spender - I like decent restaurants, clubs, any adventure sport such as rafting and I will party til dawn so am trying to find out the average amount to spend a day but have no idea of costs. So am just curious
I am planning in moving to Ecuador so there are some info that I have collected for the past 2 month over the net.
In Quito, with 5-9 USD you can get accomodation and some breakfast.
There are some sites you should visit before departure:
from ther you will find the most needed info and links to different sites you need.
hope that will help
and forgot to tell you that in Ecuador most countryes do not need a visa.
you will get one on the airport an arival. but be shure to check it out!
Thanks for that - Ecuador seems quite cheap - think Brazil is more expensive than Ecuador - you also get issued a visa upon arrival in Brazil which lasts for 180 days. Thanks for your advice and website links.
South America is cheap if you don't look for "tourists places" and stick to "nationals" although maybe you've got a problem if you don't speak spanish or portuguese. But if you're going to stay for 6 months, you can afford to travel by buses and visit the South of the South: Patagoni.
