So I am looking to travel from Cusco to Rio in time for 2014 Carnival. My friend and I have about a 10-14 day period to make the journey.
We have been quoted around $700 for a flight but we want to explore our options a bit first, especially because we have 2 weeks to play around with.
Is there a combination of buses and flights that might end up cheaper and also allow us to see more on the way? For example, would it be better to go to La Paz, fly to a certain point in Brazil and then travel overland to Rio from there?
