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…
I am a 21 yr old female who is looking to meet someone who will be in South America May 2017. I have travelled solo before but never without meeting someone the other end and do not want to miss out on this opportunity because of my nervs. So if anyone wants to meet up around that time, feel feel to message! :)
Also I was wondering how much I could realistically cover in 3 weeks? I want to go Peru, Bolivia and Brazil definitely but would I have time to fit in a little bit of Chile as well…
I'm finishing anot amazing 3 weeks holidays in Chile, have visited Chiloé, Puerto Varas, Valparaíso and Santiago, almost everything went well except for several issues we had while trying to pay with Credit Card.
In my first attempt when just arriving in the SCL airport I got a funny error message, something like WALK:POSXML ERROR/Invalid parameter size first thought was it could be my own Bank blocking the use of my Credit Card in Chile due to security or an issue with the size of my pin…
Next december I am touring the North, and I'd like you guys help me with mimtinerary, in case I'm missing something great, I'm visiting something not worth of it o you think I'm trying to visit too many things and I'll be rushing.
I land in Salta a Monday at 11:00 AM, and fly out Friday at 15:00.
I thought that the best it renting a car to be able to visit more things than in tours or public transport.
So my plan is:
Monday: 11:00 AM I land in Salta, I rent a car and go straight…
Wondering if I could please have your opinion on the logistics for the Bogota-Medellin portion of our 2-week trip in Colombia.
After spending the weekend in Bogota, we are hoping to:
Bogota to Rio Claro (via bus)
Rio Claro Nat. Preserve---> Guatupe (via bus, transfer in Medellin)
Guatupe --> Jardin (via bus, transfer in Medellin)
Jardin---> Medellin (via bus)
I know these will be long bus rides, but I don't think I want to do Jardin as a day trip from Medellin (if we were to base…
Thinking of going to El Carmen, Peru in hopes of seeing some Afro-Peruvian dance, once I return to the coast. I cannot seem to find any place to stay there that is affordable. Does anyone know of any place less expensive than the hacienda?
I'm planning to spend 2 weeks in Colombia this November. It's my first trip there, and I'm still trying to figure out my route. I'm really attracted to the idea of doing the Lost City hike (the 4 day option) which eats up a good bit of my time but I've heard that it's worth it.
I'm hoping to receive some constructive criticism on the itinerary I've put together:○ November 5: Arrive in Bogota 5am; fly to Salento (1 hour)
○ November 6: Salento
○ November 7: Salento - Day trip…
Hi, I wanted to see if there are two travelers interested in sharing a cab to see the Perito Moreno glacier when we are there on January 20, 2017. It seems like a good option for a group of 4 instead of paying to take a bus and not control your schedule. Thanks.
