Backpack or suitcase in South America

17 Apr 2013 Nane asked


Hi guys!
I'm going on the Andes+Amazon and the Galapagos tour in August and I was wondering what's better: a backpack or a suitcase?
Will we be walking around with our luggage a lot or will we leave it in the bus or at the hotel most of the time?
There are already several discussions on the forum about this topic but they were all for tours in Europe and Australia...

If anyone could give me an idea of the extent to which we will be walking around with our luggage on these tours and what would be better - that would be VERY helpful :)

    Must preferred for Suitcase. But, I guess you choose the right one. – Dennis Wong YOR Health
