Backpacking South America
Backpacking South America can take a lot of planning. The continent is vast and the distances long, plus if you don’t know some basic Spanish phrases then you may not feel that confident about booking everything independently. With the bus passes you can still travel independently but it’s so much easier and you may even meet people on the bus to your destination that you can travel with afterwards.
Travel passes vary depending on your route. Choose a Beaches & Iguazu Falls hop in Brazil, Andes to Deserts hop in Peru, Buenos Aires Rapido hop from Santiago to Argentina and many more. Just choose your bus ticket or travel planner pass, then decide how long you want to spend in each place. Check the departure and arrival times and then go!
Bus passes have a recommended number of days and a fixed route (depending on your ticket) such as: Cusco – Arequipa – Colca Canyon – Nazca – Huacachina – Paracas – Lima. They can be a variety of transport from a tourist bus to a semi-bed bus or transfer. The price doesn’t include accommodation – unless it’s travelling overnight – or any meals and you’ll need to make your way to and from the local bus terminals.
South America Tours For Backpackers
In addition to the passes they also offer short backpacker trips and treks across South America to give you a complete travel experience. Just choose one or more of the activities if your bus passes starts or end in a destination or just passes through. You could find yourself taking a schooner boat cruise around Brazils tropical islands, getting up close and personal to the Iguazu Falls or learning about life in a favela when travelling through Brazil.
Take a dune buggie, go sand boarding or take an overnight trip to the Colca Canyon during your trip to Peru. You don’t have to be solo for any of your time there either, as Green Toad Bus also offers trips to the Floating Reed Islands, Sacred Valley of the Incas and the Temples of the Sun and Moon in Huanchaco. It makes planning your itinerary so much easier and is one of the best ways to travel South America.
