Today's newspaper carries a report that YF vaccination certificates will be checked for foreign travellers at border crossings
http://www.paginasiete.bo/sociedad/2017/2/13/salud-caso-fiebre-amarilla-origino-zona-selvatica-127139.html
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…

Hello everyone,

I was planning to Peru next week but after the recent floods I am reconsidering.
First of all , my sympathy to the people of Peru for the damages caused by the flooding.

The plan for me was to spend 3 weeks in Peru following the "gringo" route starting from Lima and crossing the borders to Bolivia by bus.

What is the current situation in the country? I have read about roads been closed and many people killed. Also, I read that the rain will continue till mid April.

Are there…

Hi fellow wine lovers!

I am visiting later this week and had hoped to take in a few vineyards. I’ll be driving from Santiago north to the Elqui Valley and back but have been unsuccessfully trying to find out if Chile has the cellar door concept (my understanding of that being smaller producers happy to welcome passing guests / small outbuildings with honesty boxes).

The big boys all have their large scale operations which are fine but I don't really want to commit to full tours ... rather I'm…

Ecuador Amazon Recommendations?

We are planning to spend 4 to 7 days in the Ecuador Amazon in January and looking for recommendations regarding the advantages and disadvantages of the multitude of choices in Ecuador.

For us it is all about the plants, animals and native culture... and not wasting money on fancy accommodations. If needed.

Our planned budget is to spend around $1,000 pp and will be traveling as a group of 4 persons, but this can be increased a bit if necessary.

Any tips, suggestions or ideas would be greatly…

We want to do this trip on Aug 5, 2017.
Reports about the overnight bus are not good and the only other alternate I've found is flying to La Paz then to Sucre but the only flights I can find have a 4 hour layover between them
Does anyone know a better and alternate way or a driver in Uyuni who would take us for a reasonable amount?

Any suggestion?
Thanks

Hey guys I am taking my wife on a honeymoon for 6 weeks in June,
we're looking at Ecuador or peru and are budgeting pretty hard at about 20-30 USD per day.

I have experience traveling as I lived in brazil for 2 years (only sao paulo and neighboring farming towns), I lived in India for a year and nepal for 6 months.

My Wife has no experience traveling, but I'm there to look after her.
I know how to avoid pickpocketing and scams, how to avoid luggage getting stolen... I am most worried about…
