I'm thinking of spending two months traveling around parts of Sth America early next year (Chile, Argentina, Peru, Brazil). What would be a rough estimate for a budget per day? USD 10 a day? USD 40? USD 100???
Really depends on how you are spending your $$s
Haven't been to Peru, so I am not much use there.
In terms of buying power Argentina is the cheapest, Brazil is the next and Chile is the most expensive.
Since I was there last year we have had the western world economy crash which has made all of the exchange rates a lot worse.
Argentina was easily the cheapest. You could find all you can eat buffets with a great selection of food for 7 pesos (US$2)! Dorm rooms in hostels for 35 pesos (US$10) - Palermo House hostel in Buenos Aires and the buffet down the road.
So in Argentina you can do a lot with US$30 per day.
Brazil is probably 1.5 or 2 times as expensive, at least in the big cities.
Chile is something similar to Brazil. over 10 years agoAnswered by Nicholas Roberts
It really depends on you. As for what is possible I can tell you I would have always averaged less then $10US a day in all those countries. Its less in Peru, think I spent about $7 a day.
I spent a few months in each one, so travel costs come way down. If you are in a rush, you spend more. Buses $$$ over 10 years agoAnswered by whoissteveanyway
