5. UruguayAnother country that doesn’t have such a cheap cost of living is Uruguay, but what it has of expensive, it has of beautiful! The capital, Montevideo, is full of amazing hostels to volunteer in, not to mention that Punta del Este, one of the most famous beaches in the country and South America is also full of hostels to choose from.

Experiences like this serve to show you that many times our fears are so absurd that we can even miss the opportunity to make new and incredible friends and to know places where we could learn many things.Of course it is always good to be alert in these situations at the first moment, although the ideal is to trust your intuition, our senses are never wrong, although many times our survival instinct exaggerates a little.I hope you liked this list of cities to travel alone in South America!

Traveling South America by car

Insurance, border crossing, budget and itinerary. Travel from Manizales to Tierra del Fuego. Passing through the Panamerican Highway, Route 40 and Carretera Austral. Traveling by car is easier than you think. 32,000 kilometers round trip. Good vibes!

We quit our jobs and decided to spend our savings on a life-changing trip. We sold some things to raise more money to buy the car that would take us from Manizales to the end of the world: Ushuaia.

We have to admit that we had no idea how to start, nor how much we were going to spend. None of our friends or acquaintances had made the trip and there was little information we could find on the internet.

After analyzing several car options and according to our budget, we decided to choose a 2007 Chevrolet Vitara with a 1,600 c.c. engine, 4×4 traction. A perfect car to have power in any terrain and very economical gasoline.

The good news is that you are not alone. On the route you can find people who go by car, bicycle, motorcycles, hitchhiking or walking. We feel that the will to do it and the desire to know is the most important thing.


When I asked him how he came to the decision to travel South America alone and with little money, he replied that it was something that occurred to him after his first trip to southern Mexico, where he was doing his internship.

His trip to Chiapas and Oaxaca broadened his perspective because it showed him that there was another way to travel. He had planned a trip with “friends”, who halfway through the trip told him they were changing their plans, leaving him alone in a country he did not know.

In travel as in life, experience generates confidence, which in the end positively influences the results. Sebastian had already traveled alone to the south of Mexico, ‘how could he not be able to go to another Latin American country’, was what surely crossed this Colombian’s mind after returning to Colombia to graduate as an architect at the Universidad Piloto in Bogota.

A friend of Sebastian’s had already dared to make a long trip to some countries in South America, who supported him and provided him with information on what he had to do and what he had to have to start on his own.
