Penguins in Argentina - late March

Hello,
I'll visit Argentina in late March.
Is there any chance to see penguins at Peninsula Valdez ?
Or maybe it's better to go to Punta Tombo ?

Pantanal in April

Hello,
does anybody experienced Pantanal in the beggining of April ?
I know that there will be an end of rainy season, but does it really spoil the wildlife viewing ?

And another question - where in Brasil one can see giant anteater ? I know that they live in Pantanal, but maybe there is better place to spot them ?

Tourist Visa For US Citizens

Hello Everyone,

I seem to have read some conflicting reports about this but I was wondering if it was possible for me, a US citizen, to apply for the Bolivian visa once I land in La Paz? Some places say I must have the visa before I travel to Bolivia and others say I can purchase it there. Can any US citizens who have entered through the airport (not the border crossings) advise me on what to do?

Thank you so much

Juan Solito los llanos

Has anyone ever been here

When I visited the El Dorado reserve (if you don't mind very poor roads and poor facilities visit it).
I was told that it was one of the places for wildlife in Colombia.
Any thoughts about how to get there from Cali or Bogota?

ideas for 3 weeks in South America

Hi there,

We are about to fly to Peru to do the Inca Trail and then spend a few days in the Sacred Valley. After that we have just over three weeks before flying back to Australia from Santiago. We know that we want to spend about 5 days in Buenos Aires, but we´re trying to decide if we should fly to Igazu Falls, explore a bit of patagonia etc. We don´t have a visa for Brazil and would like to spend a few days on a nice beach without wasting too much time travelling. Would love some ideas on…
