I am flying to Bogotá on the 24th of June, returning on the 23rd of september and I would like some advice on planning my trip. I know this is really soon, but I prefer to not have a plan set in stone, and just go with the flow, although I am unsure on which direction to head at the start.
I would also like to mention now that I have two spare flights from Heathrow with these dates. They dates cannot be changed but if you were interested in coming with me, let me know and I can organise a name change. Paid £680 but will sell for a lot less.
What I was thinking:
Bogotá to Leticia flight at the end of June.
Leticia to Manaus by boat (Has anyone done this? Could you let me know what it's like if you have) 5 days ish
Manaus to Rio by plane at the beginning on July
Rio to Paratay (bus)
paratay to Sao paulo (wont stay in SP long, bus)
Sao paulo to Foz de Iguacu
From here I would like to go to Bolivia, but do not know if it would be better going through Argentina to Paraguay. Advice needed please
In Bolivia I do not have much of a plan, but would like to see the salt flats and La Paz
On to peru. I would like to visit late titicaca and Cusco/Macchu piccu, again any advice is appreciated!
From peru I would like to make it overland back to Bogotá if possible. I am on a budget of around £1000 a month although there is some leeway in this. I would like to avoid flying as much as possible.
Please give me your thoughts, and what you would do if you were in my situation!
Many thanks and I look forward to responses.
