My wife and I are from SanDiego but are living in the coast of Ecuador for a year. We want to take a wandering trip in February. Thinking about a one way from Guayaquil to either Buenos Aires or Santiago and then just busing it. Wine country in chile or Argentina plus Patagonia to Buenoa Aires. After exploring all of that we might be short on time but we want to bus it (hopefully on a bed bus) to the Uyuni flats in Bolivia and then finishing it all up with the inca trail hike in Peru (I know its the tourist thing but we have to do it living so close.) So what I'm asking is for the best approach to getting it done. My wife and I are flexable travelers who want to keep it cheap and sweet so we can splurge occasionaly on the trip. She is Ecuadorian/American and speaks spanish while I am learning. Any help would be a huge help. We are not really sure where to begin having never been in that part of South America. Now Ecuador??? We are guru's. Thanks in advance!
