Hey everyone
My girlfriend and I have just booked our trip to South America, we leave on March 7th and hope to spend 6 months away, starting in Rio and flying out of Peru. We can't wait to go but was wondering how far our money would go, I know it all depends on what we and how we travel ECT, but a rough guide would be very helpful

Happy travelling

Hi Dan
it really depends how you want to travel and if you want to eat out or live on snacks. We are travelling South a Central America for 6 months and our budget is around £3000 pp for the 6 months. As we are couple, we are staying in double rooms and until now we were able to eat out a lot. We didn´t have to restrict ourselves too much and did~´t have to eat hot dogs on a dialy basis. However, we need to watch our spending as water, internet etc are adding up. In some Coastal towns prices are similar as in Europe e.g £1.5 for 1 hour internet. In general, accomodation, food and bus travel is really cheap, but you might have to calculate for extras as guided tours etc. How much have you calculated? Have a great trip! Michaela Reply to this
