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.
It might be prudent to assume that Bolivian border officials will be more…

Hi, me and my girlfriend are thinking of doing 1-day round trip hike to Salkantay pass from Soraypampa, in the first week of July.
We are thinking of hiring a taxi to Soraypampa from Cusco and get there early morning, and start the hike around 8am. Then, slowly make our way up to Salkantay pass, reach there between 12-2pm, and come down back to the taxi at Soraypampa by evening.

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.

Thank you!

Hello -

I have read that Capurganá & Sapzurro have wildlife and nature equal to Tayrona but without the crowds. I prefer places with a more "off-the-beaten-track" feel, but also know that sometimes there is a reason for places being popular - they are amazing! Anyone been to both? We love cool bugs and monkeys in our family.

We have a couple of weeks for the Carribean coast and the guide book has convinced me to try and see it all (although my preference is to stay in just one or 2 places)…

Thanks

Otavalo

I read Saturday was the best day to visit the Otavalo Market but Wednesday is the day we have available for a day tour. Would it be worthwhile to visit the Otavalo Market on a Wednesday. Also can anyone recommend a tour company for such any excursions. Thanks, Glenn
