Is there any volcano that's worth seeing but easy to explore (in terms of physical fitness) near Quito, Banos, or Riobambe? I'll be with my parents, and they're old (~ 50 years) but still want to see a volcano. Maybe there are guides that can take them up on horses? What do you guys think?...

As we are football lovers we would like to go to a match while in BsAs. We will be going through an agency with transfer/guide and get tickets in one of the safe sections.

We have a seven months old baby and will carry him in a carrier(he will probably sleep) and he will have earmuffs on. Have anyone here experience on bringing kids to Boca stadium or just been to a match and would like to share some views?
The tickets agency says its no problem bringing kids,...

We (2 people) are looking to trek the W from west to east in December. We realize it will be very busy and have yet to book spots at the refugios or campsites. Some basic questions for those that have done it:

Recommended spots for each night?

I know refugios themselves fill up fast, do the camping options at the refugios (I understand some have camping onsite) fill up / need to be booked ahead of time

Do the free camping options need to be booked in advance

Is there an efficient and cheap way to get directly from the airport of Rio to Ilha Grande? We prefer to go directly and not first go into Rio with all the hussle, but that might be expensive. If anyone knows, let me know!

I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on how to travel from Rio to Caraiva, we're desperate to visit both places but ideally would like to go directly from Rio there as we're on a tight time schedule but if not we want to make a stop over worth it, I'm on my gap year so budget is also important! If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Hello incredible travelers!

I'm in Brazil, Sao Paolo, for work and need to escape to a quiet spot near nature and the ocean the weekend of 7-9 November. I'd prefer a quiet, affordable (~$100-150/night, prefer local and enviro-friendly), safe (for a single female) place. I'm burnt out on the energy and crowds of the big city and really want a quiet, fresh-air getaway. I would love your...

I am arriving at the Quito airport middle of the night and heard the only transportation into the city is a $40 taxi ride.Is there a cheaper way in? Do any low budget hotels have airport pick-up? Can anyone recommend a place [$10-$15] in the 'La Floresta' or the 'Mariscal' area?
