I'm headed to Tayrona in October, wondering if anyone has some favourite hostels or dive centers located in the area.

Hi,

we're going to Bolivia this October.Does anyone of you have any experience or knowledge about the "Che" festival in Valle grande? We thought about going there, but it is very hard to find more information on the internet.

Furthermore - can anyone share his experience on day tours to the Cordillera de los frailes? Any recommendations on tour operators or certain trekking tours?

Thank you very much in advance,
Anita

Dear all,

We have been advised to buy a cheap bus ticket to leave the country in order to meet visa requirements (before leaving Europe). Does anyone have recommendations regarding bus companies and connections?

Best,
