Im not REALLY gonna travel but for a project in school I need to plan a realistic trip to anywhere in the world. I decided i will go to machu picchu (because we needed to go to somewhere nature-like or exotic) is it possible to go to Peru from Pennsylvania while NOT taking any airlines on the way down? in my itinerary i was gonna take a train to Texas then go to Mexico from there then go down from Mexico to panama then take a boat to Colombia then overland it to Peru. if anyone could help me i would be most grateful.

oh but also is there a way to get from Peru to Brazil overland? In my itinerary I planed on taking a plane back home and i also wanted to go to brazil so i thought it best to go from Brasilia back to PA.

Ok, as I guess this is not a joke, I like the school project of yours.

Yes, you can travel down to South America without having to take the plane. There are no fixed ferry routes to Colombia from Panama though, you need to arrange some things with cargo ships, yachts or there are organised trips from Panama via the San Blas Islands to Cartagena in Colombia.

You can also travel overland from Peru to Brazil. There are several options. You can take the boat for example from Pucallpa in Peru for example all the way to Belem in the northeast of Brazil. You need to change boats in Iquitos, Tabatinga and Manaus. From Belem you can travel overland south to Brasilia.

You can also travel overland from Peru to Bolivia and then cross into Brazil where the Pantanal is and travel north from there to Brasilia.

Hope this helps

this was very helpful actually. i will copy and paste a lot of what u said :) . and in the project we are allowed to spend up to $7500 so it should be ok to "arrange" some things with people.

thnx for the help
