anyone done this? we've checked the allowance for the uk, and can take 4-5 bottles each.
we have two options: buy some stuff in buenos aires and call it part of our checked luggage allowance (direct flight, no stops).

i assume wine stores do this all the time and have shipping crates blah blah.
my partner assumes the box will be thrown onto the aircraft and we'll have a bunch of wine-smelling wood when we get home.

second option, shop in EZE duty free and...

Hello everybody,
I am arriving in Lima around 5.30 - 6.00 in the morning and I was thinking to go from the Airport to Lima and from there to take a bus independently to go directly to Paracas. As I read, the boat trips to Ballestras start at 8.30- 9.00. Do you know if I can arrange any boat trip later because I will be in...

Hi

Does anyone have information about this route? Paysandu looks like the best option for border crossing.

Have checked a bunch of bus companies and can't find clear schedule information. Our travel time will be around January 2/3 2015.

Thanks, Kelley

Hi all!

Usually, when travelling on December 31 we buy a new year dinner at our hotel or at the one nearby.

This is not a club version, just dinner, music, some show (not obligatory at all), countdown and grapes (whatsoever) and champagne.

We started booking late and all good hotels were already booked. Our hotel will not make any Fiesta on the New year eve to countdown and greet New year. Several neighbouring hotel wrote to me that they either don't do it or do...

Hey everybody. Does anyone know the deal with getting boat from Iquitos to leticia? I heard there are week long tours but I was looking into less formal travel to just get down the river and then back a few days later?
Any cool suggestions on how to do this would be much appreciated!
