My colleague is travelling to Brazil on December 28 on a USA passport and he's realized that he needs to get a visa to enter. Can anyone recommend a legitimate fast tracking visa service for Brazil?

I found this one:...

We went there (office in Caille Sagarnaga) about two weeks ago and booked the Death Road trip by mountainbike.
The price was normal compared to other offers but the bikes have been in a dangerously bad condition!
My rear brake suffered from not keeping the brake fluid what ended up in total loss of brake force during the trip. Additionally, one of the two mounting screws of the caliper was missing. Other bikes of the group were in similar condition:
- hard...

We are in San Pedro and will arrive to Uyuni via a salt flat tour, for where we would like to continue to Salta via Villazon.

I checked the train timetable and the Wara Wara should leave Monday 2.20 am. Are there general enough tickets to buy the afternoon before (nobody seems to be able to book it ahead from here)?

Also is it safe to wait around/in the train station around and after midnight?

An alternative is to take the night bus from...

I searched but the info' is old. Can anyone tell me the current situation for transferring from Ezeiza to Aeroparque. I would prefer to do it with a shuttle bus direct airport to airport rather than a cab.

I'll be transferring early morning about 8.00am so I should catch the rush hour nicely!

I'm assuming that I can get a safe reliable airport to airport shuttle. Does anyone know how much it'll cost me.
Also does it run 7 days a week.

Many thanks...

Does anyone know how long it would take to walk the Upper Circuit, Lower Circuit, and Devil's Throat trails from start to finish (i.e. there and back)?

My flight arrives into Iguazu at 11:00am and leaves the next day at either 10:50am or 1:30pm. I assume I will get to the park around 12:30pm on the day of arrival. The park opens at 8:00am and closes at 6:00pm. I was wondering if it is possible to do all three trails on the first day and get out before the park...

Any experience with Easy Fly? It is listed in Lonely Planet and I am looking to fly it directly from Bucaramanga to Cartagena direct. Is it dependable or should I eat the bullet and fly a bigger (LAN or Avianca) aniline's connecting flight losing time?

Many thanks!

It seems Cruz del sur has sold out their January 3rd ticket to cusco. Are they going to add more bus service? If I buy ticket from other companies, which one is better,oltursa, Tepsa, or excluciva? I need to catch train at ollaytantambo around 3pm. I probably have to arrive before 12pm.
