Hello

I'm planning to visit Argentina the first three weeks of January. I would appreciate any help you can give me with my itinerary, below. My overall plan is to focus on north west/central Argentina, making 10-12 hour bus journeys between major areas, then spending several days exploring before moving to the next area. January will be hot so I want to stay relatively high (I'd go to Patagonia but was there in Chile a few years ago.)

If you can suggest any...

Has anyone got a prepaid visa card from the USA and used it to withdraw money from a colombian atm? If so what kind was it?

I asked this question before, and got a explination of the worlds banking system. This time I hope someone will give a simple and easy to understand answer.

So, I want to buy a prepaid Visa card in the USA. I want to use this card to withdraw Colombian money from the atm at a Colombian bank.

Has anyone done this before, if yes,

Help please! My boyfriend and I have booked return flights to Rio from London 1st May to 8th June 2015. There was a sale on British Airways so we decided to do it this way rather than multi-stop flights. We would like to head straight to Peru to do the Inca Trail.

Question 1 - do we head to Lima or straight to Cuzco? If we go to Lima we could book onto a tour operator tour such as GAdventures who would sort a connecting flight to Cuzco and everything else for around a week or would...

I am thinking about a trip this January but I hear it gets real hot! Is it completely unbearable or are some of the sites blowing it out of proportion?

Thx

I just came back from Colombia after 2 months and it is completely safe to visit that country. I had no problems and the Colombians are very kind, generous, honest, helpful, educated and courteous. I protected myself placing my purse inside my body but took some photos in public with no hesitation.
I had prepared a small budget report which I reproduced here below in order to help you to organize your...

My brother and I are headed for an Antarctica cruise in January. This is a bucket list trip for us, so we are not being incredibly cheap, but it is also not "the sky is the limit" on budget.

We will be flying from Los Angeles to BA and then on to Ushuaia. In the interest...

Thanks to other posters on this forum, we have decided to go to Cotopaxi on the last day and night we have with a visiting friend next week.

We don't want to take a day tour as we'd like to explore the area and stay overnight somewhere. Can someone please let us know how is the best way to get there? I believe there is a bus from Quito but not sure where it goes or where to catch it.

Hi All,

I need to buy an extra USB stick for backing up photos and will probably need a 32 or 64GB.

Has anyone else bought one in Peru or is there the risk that I'll be buying a fake / one that doesn't work at these higher sizes? It would be bought in a larger city like Huaraz or Trujillo rather than a roadside shop in the mountains. Any ideas on the best place to buy one?

Thanks

Hi

How does one pay for a Galapagos cruise if you book last minute in Ecuador. Do they accept credit card there? A basic cruise will cost at least $1000 USD. I don't want to be carrying around that much cash as I'll be travelling for 2 months before entering Ecuador.

Any ideas?
