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…

Hi guys,

I just wanted to mention that I went to Cartagena earlier this year and have been dreaming about this one restaurant ever since: La Cevicheria. Kinda hard to get a table the same day in the high season, but it’s possible and completely worth it. (Assuming you like seafood of course.)

I was planning to get the Buquebus to Colonia from Buenos Aires and then a bus onwards to Montevideo. Is that a decent plan or would it be…

Hi all,

Can people who have done circuit treks in Peru offer estimates on how much I should plan to spend on

-- a 12 day circuit trek of the Cordillera Huayhuash, and,

-- a 5 day circuit of Ausangate?

If I make the arrangements in Huaraz and Cusco, instead of from outside of Peru.

I was in Peru two years ago. I saw that the prices for doing walk-ups to the summits of Misti and Chachani were roughly half the price if you got it together in Arequipa, instead of booking it over the internet…
