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…
In San Diego it is a hundred and some $$$. No card in Spanish.
I m going to stop in Bogota and Medellin on my way to Lima.
Where is the most convient least expensive way to get the shot and the certificate?
Hey everyone - I've been in the basic planning stage of a 3-4 month Central and South America trip for some time now, but recent life circumstances have changed my departure date to: asap. Given the new timeframe, I'm looking for some help planning a route that spans Patagonia to Nicaragua.
After searching this forum for a few days, I think starting south and making my way north makes more sense than vice versa. Can anyone recommend an itinerary that's a happy medium between A) seeing the…
February in Peru is the summer. A time in the mountains for rain, rain and more rain, cloudy skies and more rain. The inca trail to machu picchu is closed. This last february even some lodges in manu closed up.

I did some research on the internet and we decided to visit the Pantanal. Because of budget reasons I suppose it is better to visit the Pantanal from the south. Therefore our plan is to book a flight to campo grande and travel from there.
Here is the point where the…
So I've been doing some reading on options to enter Brazil (Amazon), via Iquitos in Peru or Leticia in Colombia, and crossing the Amazon by boat from Iquitos>Tabatinga>towards Manaus or from Leticia instead. I will be there in November.
I will be in Mexico (after visiting Peru) right before visiting Brazil. The flights Mexico DF to north of Brazil don't seem feasible, so I will either come back to Lima (only to flight to Iquitos, as I would have toured Peru already), or take the flight…
Plan to be in Peru for six weeks. Would rather not haul trekking poles around, but would like to have them for Salkantay and other hiking options near Cusco. Are they available to rent in Cusco?
