I've snooped a bit online and haven't been able to find a scooter rental in Montevideo, (or any place else in South America for that matter). Know of any?

Hi to all,

We are planning to visit Providencia in November. Do you think it is a good time or it will be too rainy?

Hi all,

My fiance and I are spending 15 days in Ecuador/Galapagos during the spring of 2015.
During the first week we plan to stay on Santa Cruz in the Galapagos-- relaxing and enjoying day tours.

During our second week, I could use advice! We will fly back to Quito and hope to then travel to Cotopoxi and Banos. We would like to ride the Nariz del Diablo train and finally travel to Cuenca. I have found...

Hola, I have booked a car in Salta from 9th morning to 10th August evening as I'm planning to do the Cafayate+Cachi tour (sleeping in Molinos which is halfway).

I'm travelling solo so I'm looking for 2/3 travellers to share rental costs.

If anybody interested please reply or send a PM.

I have a CELTA qualification to teach English as a foreign language and want to find an NGO that requires these skills. However it's very difficult to find on the internet as most fall into the 'voluntourism' category and charge extortionate fees. I'm looking for somewhere that might provide food and accommodation (although this isn't essential providing it's in a cheap country), but the work is unpaid (essentially a charity/NGO/school that wants my skills, not my money). Does anyone have...

I'll be visiting la Tierra del Fuego in January/February and I would like to know if there is some kind of public transportation to move around Porvenir and Cerro Sombrero on the Chilean side....I read somewhere that there was a bus going from Porvenir to Río Grande on the Argentinian side. Does anybody know about this????

It would be very helpful for me to get any answer.

My 19-year-old just finished an internship in Cochabamba, wanted to see the Salar before heading home, and a tour operator in Potosi is offering a bus that 'takes them way around the blockades' instead of through them. Tour operator is Turismo de Claudia. My daughter says her boss, a local, said this would be fine. We're in communication only via WhatsApp when she's got WiFi, and I'm feeling a little nervous. Can anyone comment or advise?

our plan is to go to Uyuni from Villazon. We're trying to work out a workable solution. If we're not wrong there are only two possible way to reach Uyuni:
- take a train. I read some old posts about problems with the train, does anyone know if it works now? And, is it possible to buy tickets online? We will reach the border from Salta-Humahuaca-La Quiaca and we don't have time to waste in the border because of the strict trip plan. I'm worried to be stopped for days in Villazon...

My family and I will be arriving at EZE in the very early morning (flight supposed to land at 4AM!?!), I'm figuring things will be moving much slower than normal at that time of day, as baggage handlers etc. might not even have started their shifts at that time (?)

I'm wondering approximately how long to expect it to take us to get through everything at that time of day? 2 hours? 3? more?
Any advice appreciated!

Hi There

I'm taking 3 weeks holiday in November and am looking to travel to Galapagos, Bolivia, and the Amazon. Can anyone tell me if that is a realistic trip to do in 3 weeks? What kind of itinerary would you recommend? Any tours to recommend? Any and all helpful information will be appreciated!

Arriving in Argentina from Bolivia, the bus fares are the greatest shock.
Information in Lonely Planet seems to be from another century. "Bus fares vary widely depending on season, class and company, and can cost anywhere from about AR$6 to AR$8 per hour on común or semi-cama, to AR$9 to AR$11 for coche cama."
No, no, no.
I just paid AR$272 for...

Hello all, just a friendly word of caution from a traveler just returned from Brazil. We had a wonderful time touring the country from the Amazon to Rio during the World Cup, except for one incident: while we were visiting the stunningly beautiful island of Ilha Grande, someone got ahold of our credit/debit card number, and stole nearly $1,000 US from our bank account. Now we are working with our bank, hoping to have the...
