How much does it cost to travel america

How much does it cost to travel to the united states from argentina?

Compared to major U.S. or U.K. cities, major cities in Latin America are at least 50% cheaper. For example, in New York a luxury hotel costs $484.00 USD and in London $406.00 USD. In Bogota, on the other hand, an accommodation of the same category can cost $164.00 USD, a difference of more than 190%.

To give you an idea of how much top executives pay for a room in 5-star hotels, we compared prices in Bogota, Buenos Aires, Lima, Mexico City and Santiago, and these are the results.

As you can see, while Bogota is the most affordable city for first-class accommodations, Santiago is the most expensive city.  In all three categories, Bogota and Buenos Aires share the top spot as affordable destinations.

Budget for traveling in South America by car

What budget do I need for backpacking in South America? Is transportation very 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 unveiled.

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 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.

How much money do I need to travel in Latin America

This is where I get serious: Buying the bike, equipping it, stamping the t-shirts, gas, spare parts, the beer for the break, getting the visas and more, much more in this section on how to spend the money on this trip.

Choosing a good bike for a long trip on rough roads is almost like finding the right woman to share your life with. I’ve never owned a bike “right out of the store” and have always felt that used bikes are more interesting.

I bought Esmeralda for a little over $5000 with just 20,000 miles on it. It already came equipped with the engine and radiator guards and three good quality Italian Givi panniers, plus two powerful fog breakers that I never used. Only in travel accessories I already had more than 1500 dollars extra that I didn’t have to pay.

There are a lot of offers like this in the advertisement pages that flood the net. The important thing to make a good purchase is to decide beforehand what kind of bike I want and that depends on the type of trip I am planning to make.

The reason why it is one of our favorite and most repeated destinations is that we are lucky to have family in Indiana, and they treat us so well every time we go, that they always make us look for an excuse to come back (a wedding, a graduation, a new cousin…). As soon as they get careless they have us squatting for a few days.

Besides having a valid passport, the most important requirement I need to travel to the USA (whether it is the first time or not), is to apply for an authorization to enter the country, known as ESTA.

Any foreign citizen traveling to the United States for tourism needs a visitor’s visa (B2), except if he/she belongs to the countries participating in the Visa Waiver Program (ESTA).

Tourist travel is defined as a short visit for vacation, visiting family and friends, medical treatment, participation in social events, participation as an amateur in a musical, sporting or similar event or contest, enrollment in a short recreational course of study (e.g. a two-day cooking class during a vacation).
