Today's newspaper carries a report that YF vaccination certificates will be checked for foreign travellers at border crossings
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.

Can anyone recommend a great tour group to use for Salkantay trek out of Cuzco in July? Any other tips regarding this trip?
I'd also love recs for a tour group in the Amazon jungle departing out of Puerto Maldonado.
I have read that Capurganá & Sapzurro have wildlife and nature equal to Tayrona but without the crowds.

In twenty minutes I received my tourist card and a receipt for 35…
