coastal Brazil, Uruguay,Argentina and Chile heaps of campsites and easy bushcamping almost everywhere. Except bushcamping in brazil than, depending on the region.But in Brazil, if just for the night you can always pitch a tent at the gasstations though. Take earplugs.... They are safe places , as there is security for the overnight trucks. Plus they have free (warm) showers and free cold drinking water too.
In Bolivia and Peru, where all in all I have spend some years, I never had problems bushcamping. Not in bigger towns ofcourse but the smaller villages are no problem and also on the (desolated)beaches or in the mountains it is excellent.. In jungle areas there is not much open space for pitching a tent but in the villages there is always a soccerfield. Out of respect ask permission to the local chief(jefe or alcalde). Before you know you might have to play a game with the local youth though...
