3- Easter Island, Chile (via David Berkowitz): Some 3,600 kilometers away from mainland Chile, Easter Island is very popular worldwide because of the moais, huge stone statues scattered across the island. Apart from that, visitors can enjoy a sunny day on its beaches and go surfing, diving or snorkeling.

5- Uyuni Salt Flat, Bolivia (via Lime884): The impressive Salar de Uyuni, located some 3,656 meters above sea level, is the largest of its kind in the world and serves as inspiration for photographers looking for the perfect occasion to capture fantasy photos. It is often visited as part of a 3 to 4 day tour.

6- Angel Falls, Venezuela (via ENT108): Located within the Camaima National Park, this wonder of nature has a height of 979 meters, making it the highest waterfall on the planet. Even more interesting is its distant location and difficult access (it can only be reached by small plane and then by canoe), making Angel Falls an attraction not so frequented by people.

FoodEating in Bolivia is very cheap. For me, the best option is to eat at the market stalls or at the “family lunch” places, where they will serve you a starter + main course + soup + dessert for USD 3 or less. Depending on where you come from, maybe the first few days you will find that they are not the cleanest places, but there is no doubt that the food is very fresh since most of the people eat there and there is a large rotation. ExcursionsThe most important thing that can make your budget skyrocket in Bolivia are the tours you take, since there are some places you will surely want to visit and you cannot go alone, such as the Uyuni Salt Flat, for example, a classic 3 days / 2 nights tour to the Uyuni Salt Flat will cost you between USD 80 – 120, plus the entrance fee to the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Reserve, which costs another USD 22. This can be reduced by bargaining (as I said before, it is essential in Bolivia), getting a price if you travel with someone else and not entering the Reserve, but to give you an idea, the excursions are what can add the most to your budget.Discover 16 things to do in Bolivia, the cheapest country in South America and be sure to read these tips to combat altitude sickness.2- Paraguay

Here are the expenses that are NOT included in this budget:Starting in Europe, we have to cross the Atlantic to visit South America. It is a long way and airfares are not very cheap. We flew from Barcelona to Montevideo and had a 5 hour layover in Sao Paulo.  We reduced the flight costs with a thorough research on the internet and comparing all the options available. We tried different dates, airlines and cities of origin. It’s a bit of work but well worth the effort and patience. Click HERE to find a cheap flight

What budget do I need for backpacking in South America? Is transportation too expensive? Is it possible to camp? How do I travel so cheaply? These and many other questions are the most frequently asked when planning a trip for the first time.

There are as many answers as there are travelers. In this kind of guide I will try to share the keys that made Juan and me be able to travel for 18 months with U$D 7 per day between the two of us. The more gas-guzzling/scratchy/broken version of me (and not for that reason unhappy, much less dirty) is about to be revealed.

So if you’re thinking of taking a trip and don’t have a lot of money, put the water for tea (I don’t drink mate), bring your notebook, and stay put. Coming soon is a guide on how to put together a backpacking budget for traveling in South America.

Normally, and regardless of the type of trip, the budget is divided into three basic elements: transportation, food and lodging. The first part (except within the cities) is solved by hitchhiking. Even in countries like Bolivia, where buses are very cheap, we choose to extend the thumb: we do not do it only for economic reasons.
