The cheapest way to travel across america

Cheap places to travel from argentina 2022

What budget do I need for backpacking in South America? Is transportation very expensive? Is it possible to camp? How do you 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.

Pin16Share13TwitterWhatsApp29 ShareTraveling from Mexico to other countries in the world does not necessarily imply having a fortune, because there are places where you can have a good time with a ridiculous budget of up to 20 dollars a day.

The hotel and gastronomic offer of this country with more than 1.240 million inhabitants is inexpensive and delicious, respectively. Food can be so cheap that a full breakfast could cost you less than a dollar. There are also buffet-style restaurants for as little as $1.50.

Indonesia is one of the best places in the world in terms of quality and price. A captivating destination with beautiful white sandy beaches and colorful landscapes, where you can dive, surf and practice other sea sports.

In addition to being delicious, the traditional dishes are inexpensive. They cost between 3 and 4 dollars. Renting a car costs an average of 15 dollars per day, a very good price if you consider the comfort the country offers and the fares you can save to visit more places.

Like any good traveler, I know my own country in depth and so far I have visited 29 of the 32 states or regions, here I recommend some of my favorite places in Mexico.Recommendations of places to visit in Mexico:

Argentina’s currency depreciation invites travelers to take the opportunity to get to know this amazing country that offers it all, including stunning natural landscapes, great food and very low prices. If you are planning to visit Argentina, look for domestic flights on airlines such as FlyBondi and JetSmart, which are low cost. If you don’t know it yet, I highly recommend this country, which is also very large, as well as booking in advance to get better prices and to set aside your internal flights to visit more places.

During my three-month route through South America in 2019, Brazil was one of my favorite destinations with the best beaches. Regarding cost, I found the main cities a bit more expensive compared to other places in the region. Brazil is the largest country in Latin America and for sure you will be able to find options that fit your budget. I think you can visit Rio de Janeiro with a budget ranging from $20 USD per day, and something in the mid-$25 to $35 USD to cover lodging, meals and some activities such as museum visits, local events in the city or going out for drinks on the weekend.

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 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 likely thing that will make your budget skyrocket in Bolivia are the tours you take, as there are some places you will surely want to visit that 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
