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…

We'll travel to Peru in 3 weeks and have everything planned, except this one day my wife is really excited about. But, she's not much fan of hiking and found this alternative Rainbow Mountain in Cusco, do you know about it and can you recommend it? The short time sounds great, but does it look as impressive as the other place?
I arrived in Cartagena this afternoon after a mostly sleepless night of flying. Everything is going very well, and it seems like a beautiful, vibrant, and hospitable city. I want to post some tips because the info I had about arriving was not 100% up to date.
I had been told that there was some sort of prepaid taxi service at the airport. When I arrived, I could find no such thing, and other travelers were simply taking cabs from the curb. I did find a neglected machine that issued tickets…
Hi again experts,
with books, blogs and your help I'm planning my trip to Colombia in July, but it's so hard. I want to do and see everything. Of course I know, it's impossible, so my partner and I decided not to go to Tayrona for example as it's probably too touristy and rather exhausting. We would be happy about tips what we should skip or could do differently. I think, there is still too much on our plan.
We like colourful or cool cities, enjoying nice landscapes on a day hike and wildlife…
We'll be a party of four needing land transport from CTG to our hotel in bocagrande. I found that uber operates in the city and the fare is reasonable.
Does anyone know if the uber will allow 4 persons, and most importantly, will they pickup directly from the airport arrivals area??
Meaning, in some airports, Uber isn't 'officially' allowed. So uber allows you to book the fare but you end up having to walk out some kilometers to some random area. I'm not interested in all that.
Flying to Rio next Saturday.
Are major tourist spots like Cuiabá/Pantanal- Iguaçu Falls- Paraty - Ilha Grande affected?
Do you think the reached „deal“ will improve the situation (and what about in 15 days then?)
Hi everyone, my partner and I have a few weeks in South America in June. We are going to the ibera wetlands and iguazu, then flying to salta. From there, I was thinking to go to cafayate, cachi etc and then up to jujuy/tilcara, then on to Tupiza to do the four day salt flat tour, ending in san pedro de atacama and making our way back to salta and flying back to BA home.
My question is whether doing NW argentina, san pedro and bolivian salt flat tour would be too much of a similar thing, and if…
