Juan Herrada Hey K! Would you be tempted to check out the more obscure countries in South America with us? We're going from Peru to Guyana, through Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela in August. You can check out our trip here - http://globetrooper.com/the-inca-rally-2012 What do you think?

Rain Lou Aster I am from colorado and have been traveling the states for the past two years. Its fair time for newer travels. I would love to join you on this adventure. I have all the free time in the world and its in my dreams to take a trip like this. If you let me know where and when to meet up I can make arrangements.

Erika Hello! I am planing to go to Brazil for the Rio+20 event in the middle of June and then I would love to explore as much as possible the Amazon forest. Would you like to meet up? I was thinking to do also some volunteer program in Amazon , but not sure yet...

KCrisp Paka: I am going to be flying from California to Costa Rica in March for a school program and then probably taking a bus to South America. I am not really sure what the deal is with multidestination and group flights, though. I'm sorry I can't be of more help. Haley: I will be in South America in August, I would love to meet up if that is when you go. Unfortunately, I have to be back at school by the end of September.

ladybug23 This sounds great and would love to join, but cannot go until early-mid July. Is that something you can work with? Or do you prefer someone available in mid-June?

paka
paka hi, next year we would like to visit Peru, Brasil and maybe some other countries but we have never been to South America. Actually, our major problem is to find good flights. We want to fly from USA but than go back to Europe. Do you know if it is possible to find good deals on multidestination flights? Also, we are wondering if it might be cheaper to find some sort of group tickets?

Todd Sounds like an interesting trip. The Globetrooper Team recently spent 3 months in South America, much of it exploring the backcountry. Most memorable parts were 1) a trek into the Peruvian jungle looking for lost civilizations (http://globetrooper.com/notes/adventure-turns-to-expedition-peru), and 2) the visit of the San Pedro prison (http://globetrooper.com/notes/how-to-get-into-san-pedro-prison-bolivia).
