We're looking to travel from Puerto Williams to Ushuaia on Saturday January 3rd after doing the Dientes de Navarino trek. I'm finding it difficult to get current and accurate information on the status of Ushuaia Boating or the Fernandez Campbell boat options.

How to get from Colombia to Rio on the cheap!

Hi everyone,
Me and my friend Louise would really appreciate any suggestions you have for how to get from Colombia to Rio on a very tight budget. We are going to Rio for carnival so flights are nearly GBP500! We know that other methods (bus, boat down the amazon?!) might take a long time but we have no choice as we can´t afford the flight.

Rome2Rio says 5 days and that is getting buses via Peru. Is there a more direct way?

Thanks
Alex and Louise

Me preocupa la seguridad en…
