For the benefit of everyone dropping by the Brazil branch for the first time, please read this FAQ first. And I hope there can be some sort of way to moderate the thread to keep it updated and clean. I know there are some AWESOME regular contributors here who enjoy giving advice; I feel this thread can really help to condense the information available.

I'll go first, with some general thoughts from the South America FAQ. Many thank to Apollo for starting that thread and for a great idea…

Hola a todos,

I would like to go from Bogota to Panama City.
What's the cheapest option for this?

Can you recommend any other Places in Columbien?

I planned to fly from Mexico to Columbia, where I would have about 10 days only, and then go up to Panama City.
In Panama I would like to stay almost 20 days. Any recommendations therefor, as well? :-)

After Panama, I have another 1,5 months to go up again to Mexico.
I thought of staying in Costa Rica and Guatemala for a while.
What do you guys think…

Hi all

I am travelling to Chile in a few weeks.

I am trying to learn a few Chilean phrases before I go. I've got myself a Latin American phrasebook and a Chilean phrasebook.

I've read how Chilean Spanish is really different from Spanish in other countries, however am I correct in assuming that the majority of 'basic' phrases that I would need when booking a bus ticket, booking a hotel room would be same in Chile as in other Latin American countries? Apart from a few phrases, most of the…

Hello travellers!

I sure need the help of some experts here.

So i am in Brazil right now (Salvador), and my mext destination is Cusco (Peru).
The (non) direct flight over there is rediculously expensive, so i read about a way to get there from Rio Branco (Acre), Close to the peruvian border.

I read some threads on the internet of travellers who have done that, but these posts were pretty a long time ago...
That's why i'm asking the help of someone who done that lately to help me with more…

Hi, I'm thinking about doing a jungle tour (maybe also la Pampas, although I've done the Pantanal jaguar tour in Brazil, and it sounds it may be similar) in Rurrenabaque. It is cheaper/easier to book it in La Paz? Or should i get to Rurrenabaque and then book while there? Any tour companies you guys can recommend and how much would each would be (ballpark)?

thanks!
