Have you ever wanted to explore countries like Panama, Peru, or Argentina, but thought it was too difficult, dangerous, or expensive? Do you know that if you travel independently in Latin America (that is, not with a tour) you can visit most of those countries comfortably for US$50 a day or less? How many winter weeks could you spend away in the sun for this little money? (I’ll wait while you get out your calculator…)

machu_picchu_300pxNevertheless, the first time I went to South America in 1995, I was apprehensive. What if I got altitude sickness or food poisoning while on my own? Would people understand my bad Spanish?

In the end, I had a wonderful and enlightening 4-week trip to Ecuador, improved my Spanish, and “conquered” my fourth continent. (This is also where the idea for a round-the-world trip was born!) I had spent the previous months pouring over destination guidebooks, but I wish I had found some comforting advice about independent travel to the region, the unique challenges of developing countries, and tips about packing, bargaining, and especially scams to look out for. Actually, I wish I had been able to time travel to the future and get my own e-book! 🙂

What you will learn

I wrote this book to empower travellers like you, who want to:

  • Learn to safely and easily organize their own trips to Latin America, one of the most interesting and cheapest region in the world
  • Save themselves the heavy mark-ups of organized tours
  • Find out how they can go beyond the beach resorts, and discover the culture of a country, without the constraints of a tour group
  • Gain the confidence to travel independently (solo or with others) to exotic Panama, Peru, Argentina, or any other country in Latin America
  • Learn how to prepare for their trip, make their bookings, and enjoy the destinations their way, whether for two weeks, two months or two years

“Organize your own amazing trips to Latin America” is the guide you must read before you buy any guidebooks. It shows you, step-by-step, how to organize your own safe and cheap trips anywhere in Latin America. In this e-book, I have gathered everything I learned over two decades of travelling the world, including 15 months spent in a total of 13 countries all over Latin America. Read on and learn from my mistakes!
