Traveling  to South America

You set your brain and you're prepared to make a trip to South America, an enchanted spot of monstrous excellence where fantasy and legend keep on strolling inseparably. I've voyaged year and a half in South America and can give you a few hints on the best way to set yourself up for an extraordinary experience. 

Sound judgment 

We as a whole hear the upsetting stories and South America has the popularity of being perilous. I voyaged a huge number of miles crossing urban areas, wildernesses, islands, and mountains. I endure a month and a half in a road kid care focus in the favelas of Salvador da Bahía (Brazil) and hosted a mind-blowing gathering during the fair. 

Nothing, I rehash, nothing occurred. Utilize your sound judgment. Stay away from severely lit roads around evening time and on the off chance that your intuition is giving you the "something isn't right" sign at that point take a taxi to your objective. 

Travel Guide Book 

The principal thing that you will require is a movement manual. It will be your best buddy as you continued looking for experience. I can energetically suggest Lonely Planet's South America on a Tight budget to kick you off. 

The book covers everything you require to know to capitalize on your excursion and is ideal to prepare. I've utilized the guide widely during my multi-month experience. They offer astounding separate travel aides of the apparent multitude of nations (other than utilizing the Lonely Planet Shoestring I've utilized their different travel aides of Peru and Brazil). Their aides are the most well known among explorers. 

Other well-known aides are The Rough Guide to South America and the South American Handbook. Ideal, yet not commonsense because you need to travel with as little luggage as possible, is appreciate the experience with a Lonely Planet and either the Rough Guide or the Handbook. 

Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese 

The most compensating thing for me was the way that you can go to a colossal landmass like South America with just 2 dialects. Spanish and Portuguese. On the off chance that you intend to travel only for half a month, you can put resources into a Spanish and additionally Brazilian Portuguese Phrase Book. English isn't generally spoken and even essential information on Spanish and additionally Portuguese makes the excursion a lot more fulfilling (they're amazingly ready to support you don't as well, stress, be upbeat). 

If then again you're intending to go for a couple of months I can energetically suggest taking a language course. The ideal would be in a school in South America (I took exercises in Quito, Ecuador, and had a private educator for $2.50/h). 

Strolling Shoes 

South America's inclination is overpowering. You'll stroll for a long time for quite a while. It would be a disgrace to stroll in the strides of the Incas with rankles on your feet. My greatest proposal is to put resources into excellent strolling shoes with Gore-Tex. 

Wellbeing Vaccinations 

Yellow Fever (on the off chance that you intend to go to the Amazon Basin), Typhoid (comprises of two infusions dismantled a month), Diphtheria-Tetanus, Polio, Cholera (just when vital), Smallpox 

Clinical Kit: 

Contingent upon what you intend to do you can incorporate the accompanying: Antiseptic cream, headache medicine, Lomotil for looseness of the bowels, anti-toxins, throat capsules, ear, and eye drops, acid neutralizer tablets, movement affliction prescription, liquor swabs, water purifier, lip ointment, foot, and crotch powder, thermometer (for a situation), careful tape, arranged clingy mortars, cloth, gauzes, butterfly terminations, scissors and to wrap things up, emergency treatment booklet 

Note: jungle fever pills are required in the amazon bowl, if it's not too much trouble know that those pills are solid and you should check with your primary care physician before flight 

Voyaging Gear 


An excellent knapsack is an absolute necessity. Pick the sort that has various compartments that can be opened independently. Handy on the off chance that you need something rapidly. Travel as light as could reasonably be expected. A hefty rucksack is bound to sabotage your voyaging joy. 


Relies upon where you go. On the off chance that it's the mountains and the wilderness, get some quality dress from home. If it's the seashore, purchase your shirts there (modest). 

Outdoors and Climbing Gear: 

You can lease outdoors and climbing material in South America however the quality might be sketchy. Continuously check the material. Bring your apparatus if conceivable. I voyaged year and a half with my tent and different outdoor utensils. 


Pictures are something individual. A few people simply need some depictions, others need to distribute in the National Geographic. Every one of my photos was taken with a modest Nikon F50 camera. Examine some astounding photos at 

I had two long-range focal points, a 35-80 mm. what's more, a 70-210mm. I likewise hauled amount and an astounding glimmer with me. I utilized FUJI slides (100 ASA) however you certainly need 200 to 400 ASA if you intend to go to the wilderness. A captivate channel upgrades the tones colossally on bright days. 


South America will grasp you with great affection. It's the tendency, individuals and history are overpowering. With the correct planning and set of the brain, you're prepared for an extraordinary experience.
