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…

Hello. My wife, our two kids (15 and 17) and I will be traveling to Peru this summer and would like to do a 4 to 7-day trek somewhere in the Cusco area. We're looking at Ausangate or Choquequirao and wondering whether we can do this without a guide, perhaps just hiring mules or donkeys to carry our things. Any advice? If not, does anyone have experience with a company called Active Peru? Other trekking outfits they'd recommend? Thanks.

I'm traveling through Santiago on my way to Portillo this August. I will land early morning, and have a full day to explore, stay the night in the city and travel out to Portillo the following day.

What are the "must-see"s, "must-do"s, and "must-eat"s? I'm looking for things that will provide a good insight to culture in the area, classic Chilean food and entertainment. While traveling I enjoy walking around plazas, or pedestrian streets that have musicians, and street performers more than I…

El Calafate -> El Chalten

El Chalten -> Bariloche

El Bariloche -> cross in to Chile -> Pucon

Pucon -> Santiago

Santiago -> cross back in to Argentina -> Mendoza

After this i am unsure which way to go as I am torn between…

I have booked a round-trip from YYC to BOG as a Canadian passport holder from April 23 to August 29. I am planning on travelling outside of Colombia sometime in early July (before my 90 day visa expires) to Panama or Peru, but have yet to book my flight. I am also definitely going to be travelling from Bucaramanga to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in August 19 to August 26. I will be back in Canada on August 29.

From what I have gathered, I am able to leave Colombia in July (before the 23rd) so…

How to get to/back from Laguna Quilotoa

My husband and I are spending 10 days in Ecuador next month for our anniversary. Our plan is to backpack from Quito down and end up in Guayaquil. I know that 10 days just won't do the country justice, but it is all we have time for! We are planning on traveling by bus and taxi the entire way. I lived in Ecuador for 18 months, so the bus system is nothing too new for me. However, we are having a hard time figuring out how to get to Laguna Quilotoa.

I have searched everywhere and cannot seem to…
