This is by far the driest rainy season i have ever seen here
I want to know if there is a way to ship a motohome from Paraguay (around Paraná river) or from Uruguay to Venezuela. Thank you.
Hello! My partner and I are planning a big trip before our baby is due next June. I've always wanted to go to Patagonia but I'm worried that I won't be able to fully take advantage of it because of the pregnancy. My doctors have said it's fine to do moderate hiking but I can't carry a heavy backpack so camping is out. Are there still worthwhile hikes that aren't rigorous and don't require overnight outings? Any other tips for a pregnant woman in the region would be so helpful.
Me and my gf are going to have a vacation in Chile. from 11/13 to 11/26. We are very excited. We've been reading lonely planet and travel websites for info on where to visit.
Since we have only limited time, We'd like to go south from Santiago.
Places and things we'd like to do and experience are hot spring, definitely to see the glazier, breath taking landscapes and penguins :)
so far, we have santiago, pucon, puerto montt, and torres del paine.
I am not sure how we can make this work. It seems to be a lot of on the list. Could you guys advise how we can make this work? We dont mind scraping things off our list. We really are just looking to have a good time there.
Thanks in advance
Hi all, does anyone have any recommendations of wine farms where you can stay in either Mendoza or Salta? Can spend up to USD $250 per night. Looking for somewhere to totally relax and drink wine :-)
My wife and I are taking a trip to Patagonia in February (no set dates yet) but it will be for about 3-4 weeks. We'll be bringing our tent and camping supplies but we want to break up our nights camping by staying in hostels. I'm still working on an itinerary, which is proving difficult. Basically i just want to know how widely available hostels (or even hotels) are in Patagonia, and if anyone has any recommendations!
I am arriving on the 17th around midnight, the hotel I am staying at wants $14 USD to take me 2 miles. it occurs to me this is 36 Peruvian soles. Will I be able to secure my own ride at that time of night?
I will be arriving in Lima on Nov 17th at 11:55 pm. No banks or xchange places in the airport will be open. i also have an early morning flight out of Lima the next day. How can I get my money exchanged for soles?
I'm thinking of going to Cartagna in January by myself (also, I'm a female). Has anyone done this? Are there places nearby that would be safe and easy to get around to? I haven't met anyone who's been to that area as a traveller, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Can anyone please suggest a hotel in Miranda, Mato Grosso do Sul, which is easy walking distance from the railway station at which the "Pantanal Express" arrives? We will be arriving late in the evening and don't want to have to find a taxi if we can avoid it.
I'm going with my boyfriend to land in Caracas and we are directed to Bogotà. We've read in this section a lot about usefull info about bus companies and best way to go, but when we try to go their website it's almost impossible to pre book, as the most of the people suggested.
So, the question is, which is the best way to book a bus from my country? Do you have any tips? Or have we just to wait to book there?
Thankkks in advance, have a nice day,
Anyone have any idea about getting accommodation for Carnival at this late stage? We get to Rio either the morning of Feb 8th or 9th and would prefer to stay in a hostel but a private room as my wife has to work a little. Anything other than hostels we can look for? Maybe something away from the center of Rio?
My girlfriend and I will be traveling down to Patagonia, starting in Bariloche, in about a month. We are looking for some work or at least working in exchange for a room and/or food. We are trying to spend as much time in Patagonia for the least amount of money. We have heard it is sometimes possible to work at hostels in exchange for a room. We have also heard that woofing is rather easy to come by in Patagonia.
Any insight or ideas are welcomed.
So I am trying to find out if there are any sef guided kayaking trips in Torres del Paine. I have a lot of expierence kayaking and I would prefer to do my own trip, does anyone have any knowledge of kayaking rentals in the area? I will have all my camping gear so doing a multiple day trip would be great
Also, I would love to see the marble caves but I'm not sure the best way to get to them. Would it be best to kayak to them? or what is the best way to see them?
thanks for all your help!
