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…

Hi everyone- It looks like the flight I'll be taking from Mexico City to Cusco will arrive in Lima at 8:30 PM and leave for Cusco at 6:10 the next morning, so I'd like to get a room. I found a few motels near the airport. But I notice that LP describes the area around the airport as being rather dangerous, and the site of "Express kidnappings." Is it safe enough for a night, or would I be better off going to another neighborhood?

If the later, how early would I need to leave from, say…

Any sites/experiences/restaurants that might not be mentioned in a guide book that one really shouldn't miss if they are traveling to Bogota or Medellin? Some cool hidden treasure that a local told you about? We are adventurous eaters and would love to know the best places to try a local special dish. Also, anything that tourists typically come to see that you think is worth skipping?

Hi all! My friend and I are staying in Medellin for a couple of nights and are checking out AirBnB to find a spot. What areas of the city would you recommend staying in? We are looking for a place where we can get a flavor for life in the city, central and easy to explore the city from on foot or with a short Uber ride, and definitely safe (but not too touristy if possible). Any recommendations? I had heard Poblado was a good option - thoughts?

Two chairs + umbrella one coconut (7BRL) and a large caipirinha near Posto 9 cost us 52BRL or about £10.90/$15.25. Baha’i food vendor at Hippie Market sold us two sandwiches (the bun being made from beans rather than bread) with okra and shrimp fillingwith plus one large coconut/tapioca dessert for 40BRL =~£8.40/$11.75/€9.50…

Hey! I'll be doing the lodge to lodge Ausangate trek in early June, arriving in Cusco 3 days ahead of time to acclimatize.

Can anyone suggest day trips/hikes that are less than 2 hours travel time from Cusco? We will be skipping MP and don't want to push too hard before Ausangate, but still want to get in a practice hike or excursion while not being stuck in a van all day.

Happy travels
Stacy
