I am planning on travelling around South America for 3 - 4 months in June this year. Im wanting to book my flights and then see where the road leads and will book Machu Picchu for August. Does anyone have any good advice on where would be a good place to start eg. Buenos aires versus the top end ?maybe Columbia or Ecuador? ... Any areas I should particularly avoid??
Am travelling on my own so would be good to meet some other travellers early on and then take it from there. Any education, hints, tips would be greatly appreciated :)
Thanks in advance!!
