I went to the official claro store after 4.5 painstaking hours finally got a prepaid sim card and was told to call *611# to activate my promotion when I do this I'm told I don't have enough money for the promotion.

Looking to do some day and multi-day hikes. I am not sure what would be my best bet that time of year. I know there is the Lost City hike - other ideas?
