Wouldn't it be easier and better to divide this into several different trips to South America (etc.)?

i'd really rather just do it once and get it over with. 5 weeks should be plenty of time.

expanding on that, other than the things i noted to see, i really have no other interest in South America, so additional time and vacations are better spent in asia or europe.

Aruba, Havana & Florida Keys could very likely be a separate trip.

well countries and flights are opening up so planning has started and put a deposit on a Quark 8 day cruise for March 2023.

pared the trip down to:
Rio
BA
Santiago
Easter Island
Antarctica
La Paz

the only remaining "hard core" covid requirements are for Easter Island. test before boarding. test after arriving. random testing while there. and the Chile Mobility Pass that most of mainland Chile has dropped.

MSPeconomist and Rick Steves are correct, you can always go back.
