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…

Hi there

I'm planning to visit Huaraz mid september (arrival around 12-15 september) to do some day-hikes (Lagunas) and a multi day hike (e.g. SC trek) on my own.

But after randomly checking a weather forecast website I was quite disappointed to see that the weather is bad, like REALLY bad. It's going to be rainy and cloudy throughout the whole month of September..==> http://www.accuweather.com/en/pe/huaraz/256878/september-weather/256878
This would mean that a lot of the beauty I'm hoping to…

I plan on doing the "O" circuit solo at Torres Del Paine this upcoming January 2017. I know that CONAF has a lot of new restrictions for this coming season and I'm wondering if, other than securing the campsites and booking ahead of time, do I need any special permits to complete the back half of the circuit? Specifically camp Seron to Camp Paso.
I read that they're going to limit the amount of hikers per day that would like to complete the back half of the O.

Also on the sites FAQ they say…

Have a 4-day weekend coming up in November, and my husband and I are considering one of two itineraries: Cusco/Machu Picchu and Buenos Aires. If we choose Cusco/MP, we'll get into Cusco around noon. This leaves us with just two-and-a-half days to explore Cusco/MP because Tuesday will be spent traveling. Not enough time, right? (I've heard lovely things about Cusco from my friends and am assuming that it is worth a trip even on its own.) While my husband and I are not adventurous types -- we…

Hi all I'm hoping for some help on my itinerary for my trip to Argentina in November.
I'm a female travelling solo & have flights booked from 14/11 - 1/12 to Buenos Aires.
My preferred places to visit are Mendoza, Bariloche & Colonia in Uruguay.
I like hiking (not too strenuous) biking, wine & food so far my research shows these spots offer all.
Perhaps you can advise on whether this is all feasible within 17 days & if driving from BA to Mendoza is safe alone?
Also any tips on a nice working ranch…

I will visit Colombia in mid September for two weeks. I want to see as many as I can, the Colombian typical landscape and culture. I prefer trekking rather than relaxing on the beach. I’m solo, and don’t have enough time to be off the beaten track, but just following the major touristic loop is not my idea.
Here is my itinerary, it looks too tight for two weeks, and I have to omit at least one place. Which one I should miss?Please give me some advice.

  1. Barichara + El camio Real hiking, vs…
