Hello, I'm going to be travelling to Sao Paolo alone, so wondered whether I would be safe wandering around the city, and where to go as I'm not big into museums. I do like places that are typical to the area e.g bazaars, temples, and especially any natural phenomina. Please excuse my ignornace, I've no access to Lonely planet as yet.

Has anyone had any experience getting a tourist visa for Brazil whilst travelling in Japan? I'm travelling on an Australian passport.

Hello Travelers,

Me and my wife are traveling to Argentina in June and we would like to get some help with planning our trip. We have the following (all flights are already booked):

  1. 4.5 free days in Buenos Aires.
  2. 3.5 free days in Bariloche, which includes a trip to San martin de los andes with a rented car (for the seven lakes) ,spending a night in San Martin and returning to Bariloche the next day. That leaves us with 2 free days in Bariloche.
  3. 2.5...

Hi, this is my first travel to any part of South America.
I really need help about schedule of long distance bus b/n Puerto Natatles (Chille) and Ushuaia (Argentine).

Firstly my fixed schedule is following.
1) Around noon on April 30th, arriving at El Calafate from Buenos Aires
2) In the morning on May 4th, leaving Ushuaia for Buenos Aires

As I'm coming from Japan where cross-border on land does not exist, I really want to take bus b/n these destinations as...

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be traveling from Florianopolis to São Paulo by bus and would like to buy my tickets online. However the websites for all companies asks me to register with a CPF. Since I don't live here, I don't have one of those. Does anyone know how to buy bus tickets online without that? Do I need to go in person to the rodoviário? Or can I use my Brazilian friend's CPF (he'll be traveling with me) with my credit card (which obviously won't...

Newbie here. We have chosen to go on the Ocean Spray 8d/7n Galapagos cruise, Itinearary A, next March. From there we want to go to the Amazon (La Selva ) We have narrowed our travel agents to Columbus Travel,(based in Ecuador) or Vaya Adventures, and Adventure Life. (both out of the US) Has anybody used any of these, or can recommend one over the other. Thanks.

Hi all.

I'm planning a 2 weeks trip to Peru in October, with my wife and two boys (11 and 8 y/o). It will be my second time in the country, and their first. We intend to be mostly in Cusco and surroundings, with a tight budget, in a relaxing pace, searching for meaningful, simple and joyful experiences that put us in touch with the Peruvian soul.

We would love to stay a few days hosted in a native rural community, learning with their culture while we share ours (we are...

Is this place worth the time and effort to go from Salvador including stops in Jericoacoara and Praia de Pipa.
And what is the best way to get from Jericoacoara to the Delta (we think there is a boat) and then to Lencois.
How much this trip will cost (approximately).
Thank you.

Hi,
I'm going from rio to belo horizonte for the semi finals game of the WC. A couple of questions please:

  1. I'm looking into travelling by bus as the distance is not that awful. Which buses run through RIO-BHZ and what are the ~prices? TAM's fare for roundtrip is ~135$, but the hours aren't really comfortable.

  2. What are the main things to do while in Belo?
    Ty! :)

Hi guys, i tried a search and could not get much information on the best places to Scuba dive in South America,

I'm currently planning a trip with 2 of my friends and we are all advanced scuba divers, we were wondering what the best spots were to go diving.

Not including Galapagos islands though as we cannot afford, and do not have the time frame to do them :(

Our trip will be from September to December, And i personally would love to see some sharks and turtles...

I booked 2 tours with them, fully paid and confirmed in their office.
I was supposed to be picked up by 5:30 am for my Machupicchu tour. Luckily I had their emergency phone and when they did not come by 6:00 I started calling it. After several calls, someone came after 7:00. I have already missed my train so he stopped an car in the street and payed him to drive me in order to catch the train along the way.
The reason I picked them was they advertised they give the longest free time...

I'll be flying LAN from Santiago to Lima with a 55-minute layover in La Paz and I'm a US citizen. Will I require a Bolivian transit visa? I would generally assume not as I will just be in transfer within the terminal building but I've been unable to find any information as to whether or not transfer passengers are required to pass through immigration before continuing on (presumably causing me to miss my connecting flight anyway).

Thanks for the help!

my friend and i will be hiking the salkantay for 5 days, then we'll go on an amazon jungle tour for 3/4 days in puerto maldonado. from there we'll probably fly back to lima, except he'll fly back earlier than i will, which leaves me a few more days in limal. i've heard that lima is kind of underwhelming, so i was wondering if anyone had any advice on small trips i could make from lima within a time span of 3 days. i'd have already been to ica, paracas, huacachina, and the...
