5 days in SA. Where to go?

I basically need to do a bit of a mileage run to end the year and was wondering what you guys recommend. Tickets are cheapest to Brazil, but I don't have a visa. There are also decent prices to Argentina, Peru, Chile and Colombia. Which countries are the most interesting? Which are cheapest? Which do I need a visa for?

Peru is likely to be cheapest and has no visa/reciprocity fees. Brazil has visa requirements, Argentina and Chile charge ~$150 fee for entry.

I love Buenos Aires, it is a great city to visit, but you have the reciprocity fees. You could enjoy the city, and take the ferry over to Uruguay to see Colonia de Sacramento or go to Punte del Este for the beach.

Chile is nice as well.

Peru has Cuzco, Macchu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and you could choose one or two of those to visit while there.

5 days is pretty short....
