The plan

January 8, 2011

We are almost ready to go!!! Just one week for our January 14th flight from Boston to Argentina. From Buenos Aires we plan to drive back to Mexico Boston. It should takes us no longer than eight months.

Here’s the plan:

South America

Spend the first two weeks with family in Buenos Aires –

Argentina: going northeast visit Córdoba, Talampaya, Valle de la Luna, Tucumán, Salta and Jujuy – ~15-20 days

Chile: just a few days in the north of Chile visiting San Pedro de Atacama – 3-4 days

Bolivia: Laguna Colorada, Salar de Uyuni, Potosí, Sucre, La Paz, the Yungas, Lago Titicaca  – ~20 days

Perú: Lago Titicaca, Cañon del Colca, Arequipa, south coast to Nazca, Huacachina, Paracas, Huacho, Huaraz, Chavín de Huantar, Caraz, Trujillo/Huanchaco, Chiclayo, Máncora and Tumbes – ~30 days

Ecuador: Machala, Cuenca, Guamote, Riobamba, Baños/Patate, Quilotoa Loop (Pujili, Tigua, Chugchilan), Cotopaxi, Quito, Oyacachi, Otavalo – ~25 days

Colombia: Laguna de la Cocha, Popayan, Cali/Pance, Zona Cafetera (Armenia, Pereira, Manizales), Bogotá, Villa de Leyva, San Gil/Barichara, Bucaramanga, Santa Marta, Palomino, Cartagena- ~30 days

Drive across the Darien to Panama!!! We’ve heard this is safe nowadays.🙂

Central America

This part is not planned in detail yet.

Panama (~1 week), Costa Rica (~4 weeks), Nicaragua (~1 week), Honduras (~ 6 hours, not including police stops), El Salvador (1 day), Guatemala (~2 weeks),
