The continent is best explored by focusing on a few countries at a time, particularly as domestic and international flights are expensive unless booked well in advance. Check out overnight bus rides to save money.

Hiring or buying a vehicle has become a common way of exploring South America. Highway have all contributed to the continent’s reputation as one best explored with your own wheels.

Hostels, the mainstays of solo backpackers are found in the vast majority of towns and cities, but keep an eye out for local types of accommodation that rarely appear online such as family-run alojamientos or hospedajes.

These take the form of a dorm bed or individual room in a family’s house. They're cheaper specially if you're alone.

Local restaurants can cost as little as US$1.25 in some countries and street food is a quick and delicious alternative to a full sit-down meal. It's a good way to save money for yourself.

There are always places to go to in Latin America. You won't get bored. It's easier to travel alone because you can easily talk to locals.

You’re never likely to be far away from potential travel companions. Most visitors follow a similar itinerary, known as the “gringo trail”, which winds through the continent’s top destinations.

When you're alone, you'll always get the chance to meet a lot of new people. Another way to meet other foreigners and get chatting to locals is at language exchange nights.

You can always find a lot of fellow backpackers if you travel alone. They'll help you get around too.

For those looking for a more unusual adventure, there’s still ample opportunity for delving into this continent’s wildest corners. To make the most of escaping the tourist thoroughfare, learn some Spanish before you go or invest in an intensive language course upon arrival.

I like traveling alone because it's easier. Group travels let you wait if they can accommodate you.

Traveling alone lets you have flexible plans. You don't need to follow an itinerary. You can do whatever is available and not wait for others to decide.

You're more in control of your destiny if you travel by yourself. You get to meet lots of people and you can fly by the seat of your pants.

Solo travel does require more planning and more work but at least you control what you want to see and where you want to go.

Learnt o speak Spanish if you're alone. It would come in handy in asking the locals. They'll point you on what you should see and where you should go to enjoy the experience.

Lots of hostels have private rooms as well as shared dorm rooms, and a communal space. So even if you stay in a private room you often have a great chance to meet other travelers.
