I've got three months and I'm trying to decide what to do with them...

Mexico - Costa Rica?

Colombia - Rio?

I've got £4k.

It's my first time travelling so I want to make sure I do it right..only me who can make sure that happens right..safety-wise people seem to recoil at CA. Are they being dramatic or valid?:)

Have you had a look at a guidebook or travel guides? It so much depends on what you like to do, whether you like ruins and remote or cities and museums. Rio is an expensive destination and will eat up your budget. What about Andean countries - Perú, Bolivia, Ecuador? What time of year can you travel?

May to July so I was thinking Salvador Bahia to Lima. How much would you budget for Rio?

The weather in central doesn't look great that time of year!
