I hope you will find this list useful if you plan to visit some of these places even though things change very quickly. The three star and one star evaluations were applied only to places that were significantly better or worse than the average for a given price range.
On this South American trip, I spent 33 nights in 14 different hotels at an average cost of 17.00 $US (not counting the nights spent in transit nor those passed in the homes of friends).
