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…
We will be in Brazil in march and want to visit coffee plantations..can you recommend any area where to go (preferably one day trip from some other city)? We dont want to do it with travel agency..I know it wont be the coffee harvest time, so do you think whether is there more to see than just coffee trees? Any experience?
i need a partner for my first glacier tour. i have lots of mountain experience but not with glaciers. i know it is very ambitious to start with the chimborazo. but i think it is possible. and i start in two days with the acclimatisation. i will do the illiniza norte tour starting from latacunga. if anyone is willing to join me, please write me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is much cheaper for two persons than for one. two persons need one guide, so its is about 185 dollars…
We are used to backpacking but wouldn't mind mixing it up and doing a few luxury activities/stays for this short post wedding trip. We already have our flight which arrives on the 10th of August in Cartagena and leaves on the 20th. We would mostly like to get in some beach-relaxation, don't mind taking one or two internal flights and are looking for help with our itineary. We are thinking of spending one or two nights in a cabana on Playa Blanca. Any other suggestions during this trip?

I prefer a school that rent apparents for the student's.
Hello! I just started planning a 5-6 week trip to South America for this summer. I just started planning and am overwhelmed by the amount of information and recommendations on places to visit. As of right now, I think I want to begin in Colombia, and travel to Bolivia, Peru, and Chile. Can someone tell me if 5-6 weeks would be enough time to see some the more popular sites/cities in these countries? Also, someone who has done a similar trek, how much should I plan to budget (excluding airfare)…
My husband and I are visiting Mendoza at the end of March and will have two full days in the area. We are planning to stay at the Hyatt in Mendoza city (free with points), and we are going to do an Andes hike on one day with Discover the Andes Expeditions. The other day, we would like to spend visiting wineries.
Any suggestions for region to focus on - Maipu vs. Lujan de Cuyo vs. Uco Valley? It looks to me like Uco Valley has some really interesting spots with awesome views, but I'm not…
