We're after great fun (2...

We will fly from Rio to Campo Grande and have 6 days in this area out of which 4 full days (transport to/from Rio is 2 days). We would like to see both Bonito to do some snorkeling in the rivers/caves, and also see Pantanal wildlife. I know that the time is very short, but this is all we have: 4 full days.
What would be better: stay in Bonito 2 days, and then take bus and...

Hi everyone,

I have booked my Inca Trail tour for end of March. You can hire a sleeping bag for USD25 and trekking poles for USD20 from the tour operator. However, I have read that there is a market in Cusco called El Molino, where you can buy cheap fake outdoor gear. Has anyone been recently and can tell me how much I would pay for an appropriate sleeping bag and trekking poles? I want to avoid buying any of those here in...
