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…

My partner and I are due to be in Santiago in Chile during the Christmas period. I've been doing some research but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of what we could do on Christmas day, as I know that most things will be closed.
I know its a long shot but I'm currently in Quito and plan hike some of the top peaks in Ecuador (first week of July preferably) and was looking for any other hiking enthusiasts to join me (or let me join them : )
My current plan is to spend 1 day climbing Ruca Pichincha (4,600m) on Friday, June 29th (which is just a 5 hour hike from the top of Quito's teleferico) and then head to Cotopaxi (5,900m) on July 1st/2nd and lastly Chimborazo on the 5th/6th.
If we believe more acclimatization is…
I'm planning to travel to Guyana in a few days from New York. I wanted to take a new 32in TV as a gift to a friend the TV cost me less than $100, I was wondering if I have to pay taxes for the TV?
in the LP there's a recommendation to walk from Salento to Vereda Palestina to visit some coffee farms.
Has anybody done this walk? Is it easy to find? Difficult / tough conditions?
Do we need to book a coffee tour in Vereda Palestina in advance or can I just walk by?
Alternative would be to take the Bus to Finlandia? Does anybody know how long the ride takes?
Four of us are spending a few days in Mindo early Sept, then plan to take a taxi to Santo Domingo, bus from there to Puerto Lopez. The taxi is meant to cut some of the travelling time. Does this make sense? We have read that the "old" road down to the coast from Quito is beautiful, would this be the same route we will be taking, or similar?
I'm beginning the process of planning a long (one year or more) Central/South America grand tour. My trajectory through Central America appears fairly straightforward, but South America is much more daunting owing to its shape and size.
Considering that I'll most likely enter the continent at Cartagena, Colombia, and plan to cover most countries (perhaps not Venezuela depending on current conditions there), I would appreciate hearing about strategies other travelers have used to make their…
