Repost-Pay it Forward!–How Much Should You Save and Budget for South America?

JUST RAMBLE ON

Expanding on my first blog on How to Budget for Backpacking and Long-term Travel, I thought it would be good to provide some more detail on how much we budgeted for our trip in South America….

Loosely we used the £1000/$1600 a month rule to start with

With an outward flight booked just before the start of March, we at least wanted to last until Christmas. So £10,000 each sounded like a good total to aim for.

But

Once we browsed a bookstore we used the following prices as daily spends (all in US dollars, correct as of Sept 2013). We used these as a basis for our budget…we took the comfortable (upper) daily budgets then we planned for a month in each country …

  Total for 30 days
Argentina $50 (Basic) $80 (comfortable) $2,400
Bolivia $15 $28 $840
Brazil $55 $85 $2,550
Chile $40 $60 $1,800
Colombia $50
