7 weeks of driving

If landing in Beunos Aries could I drive south to the tip back up through Chile over to Bolivia and back to BA in this time. Do some day trekking and mix in a 4-5 day W trek? Thanks

Amazon adventure advice

DH and I are in the planning stages of a trip to Peru and Ecuador sometime between November and March of 20/21. What I am interested in for this thread is a recommendation for an adventure lodge in the Amazon. We do like hiking, kayaking, sight seeing, small groups, hut accommodation with showers of some type and experiencing jungle tribe life. Any suggestions, concerns, experiences of your own would be a value to us.

Recommendation for travel agent in Chile/Argentina

Can anyone give me a recommendation for a travel agent that is situated in Chile, not an overseas agent? An Argentinian one would probably work as well.

I want to use it for planning my trip from Iguaza Falls to Santiago and then a trip up to the Atacama Desert.

Thanks

Peru, Buenos Aires or Elsewhere for a relaxing trip?

I’ve had a rough past year and I finally have a month (January) between starting a new job to travel somewhere. I really need this break. I just want to go somewhere and disappear for a while so i’m looking forward to this trip. I can’t decide between traveling to Lima/Cusco or Buenos Aires. I don’t want to spend too much and so my plan was to stay in not more than two cities or just one area of a country, and really experience the culture there. I want to go somewhere that will be rejuvenating, relaxing and would allow me to meet tons of travelers on days I want to be social but also allows me to retreat and be alone.

Peru interests me for the scenery, machu picchu, hiking is kind of out my comfort zone but it would be cool to try it, ancient ruins, and the history. There seems to be a unique quality about Peru.Buenos Aires (I would stay at Palermo) interests me for the great architecture, cafes/coffeeshops, European-like which is cool, cosmopolitan vibe meaning lots to do maybe. I don’t know which option would be more relaxing?

Cons of both. Buenos Aires, maybe just like any major city, ATM situation, too hot in January, more expensive than Peru // Peru – would be going during a rainy wet season Jan/Feb, seems Peru involves more planning once you’re there for tours/hikes etc

Any suggestions about which would be a good option? If any, any itinerary planning advice? I’m

Galapagos DIY 8 Day Trip

Hello!

I am planning a roughly 8 day trip to the Galapagos for mid-May. I would like to save some money and DIY it, potentially flying into Balta airport and out of San Cristobel. Can anyone help recommend how we should break down our time between the islands ? Should we try to spend at least a night on 3 islands ? Is it best to just stay on 2 and include day trips ? We are a young couple looking to see wildlife, do some easy snorkeling and visit beautiful beaches.

Thank you!
