Hello All:

Not sure if the major celebration there is on Christmas Eve or Christmas day. Either way, any recommendations for a nice place to attend mass (Spanish/Latin/English - language doesn't matter) that is reasonably accessible from Miraflores and in a safe area? (don't know if the large/famous cathedrals are packed to capacity for such a holiday - we are perfectly happy going to a smaller place for a seat and a good experience)

Hola amigos.

Does anyone know if you get a decent rate for Chilean pesos in Argentina? I know about the blue dollar but am unsure id the cambios will do a similar favourable rate for their neighbours pesos.

We're heading over the border tomorrow but have left it a little late to get some more USD. We have some, but it would be great if someone could let me know if I'll be paying a...

Hi Peru sages,

We are interested in climbing Huayna Picchu at the end of April 2015 after a 4-day Inca Trail hike. Our travel agency offers the option of buying the HP tickets for us but it seems like at a hefty profit margin ($80). So just wondering if it's still possible to buy them off the Peruvian government website. Thought I read about them not letting individuals buy the tickets anymore---only...

Hello All,

I came across these two website browsing around, which are offering Inca trail for sub $400. Any experience with them or any idea of why they are so cheap.

Hi all,

there seems to be some confusion regarding the El Cocuy 6 day trail being open or not. I have received the below notification from the cocuy@parquesnacionales.gov.co. I Wont try to translate it because google might not do a good job so if anyone that is able to translate it for the rest of us, we'd be grateful.

Hello all,

I've been getting confirmation from colombia that the 6 Day trek is closed so my question would be if its worth travelling the extra 6 hours there and 6 hours back to El Cocuy in order to do day treks or stay in Sogamoso (valley of the sun) area to do day treks there?

I'll be travelling in from Riohacha towards El Cocuy so any advise on the quickest route or anything worthwhile to see along the way would be much appreciated.

Hola amigos y amigas! I am travelling around northern peru, especifically around trujillo and i'm slowly heading south towards lima. I may spend christmas in trujillo and/or nearby there. Anyone interested in hanging out around those days let me know, por favor. I am interested in visiting historical/ archeological sites, as well as museums and nature places. Open to suggestions though. Happy travels!

**Is any aware of a guide who knows and understands the rain forest and can take people deep into the jungle to teach them about the Amazon ? **

I have a couple of days on my own after flying into Bogota before my group arrives, and would like to go to Villa de Leyva: either a day trip or a 1- night overnight. The LP Advertisements looked do-able at about $126 for a daytrip, but clicking through for potential booking ended up at more like $330 for a day trip. I am thinking that what might make sense is spend my first night in...
