  1. Prices would have be helpful . . .

    1. Hi Yishay,

      We decided not to publish any prices because it does fluctuate a lot – and the price you pay may depend on your negotiation skills. Once you are past the US border into Mexico, consider 5-6 USD for camping and 15-25 USD for a hostel. Hotels are maybe 40-50 USD depending on what you want. Prices are very reasonable – until you get to Chile where camping is again on US level prices of 15-20 USD per night.

      It’s difficult to estimate the total budget for such a trip because . I would lay out all my clothes and all my money before I leave – and take half the clothes and double the money!

      Enjoy the trip!

  2. PERFECT! I truly appreciate your responds aaaaand patience 🙂
