Today's newspaper carries a report that YF vaccination certificates will be checked for foreign travellers at border crossings

This follows a case in the lowland area of northern La Paz. Spanish speakers may be struck, as I was, by the emphasis on a foreign traveller being affected and there being no local cases.
It might be prudent to assume that Bolivian border officials will be more…

Hey guys,
So I've been planning a backpacking trip through Latin america but I'm having some trouble deciding which countries to go to. I was originally planning on only doing South america (Colombia-Ecuador-Peru-Bolvia-Chile-Argentina-Brazil) but lately I've been considering either going to Central america instead, or doing Central America and part of South America. Optimally I would like to do both, but I just don't think I have enough money for that. I saved up $14,000, and I'm estimating that…

Hi!

Will be traveling solo in Ecuador starting May 7 and plan on doing the 3-day Inca trail. I've heard that it is often easiest / cheapest to book a guide at the trailhead in Achupallas. Anyone have experience with this? Any tips? Anyone care to join?

Hi!

This seems like a common route but which way is the best if I want to go to Salento and Medellin from Bogota. Either bus from Bogota (or fly) to Salento then bus to Medellin and fly to Cartagena OR bus from Bogota to Medellin, then bus to Salento and fly (from Pereira) to Cartagena?

Thanks!

Hi everyone, inexperienced traveler here! I am renting a car at the airport as I have a stopover at Lima for 17 hours. Arrive there at 10 am and leaving at 3 am the next day. What are some nice areas to stop by? Looking for anything really. High emphasis on local food. Note that I have no GPS and will be relying on maps. I could use GPS on my phone but that is if I find wifi somewhere.
