Hi all,

I also read an old blog post that you can get the yellow fever shot for…

The way I see it, I've got time to do the hike to Perdida and visit Tayrona, or visit Tayrona and do some other things, like visit Minca and tube down the Palomino river. Is Ciudad Perdida a "must do"? I'm big into hiking and adventure, so it seems like it might appeal to me.

  2. Is camping…

Hello! I know there are a lot of posts related and I did a search but did not find anything that answered my question. My friend and I are arriving on the Wara Wara train at 2:30 am to Uyuni (like a lot of people do) and I really want to reserve an accomodation beforehand. All the posts I am seeing on here are for more comfortable accomdations. Really we just want a place to pass the night until our tour in the morning.

So a cheap hotel or hostel would be ideal. I checked Airbnb which has…
