We are looking to do Viedma glacier "Pro" tour out of El Chalten on December 23rd. Patagonia-aventura just told us by email that their price for pre-booking the tour by credit card in AR $ has gone up, making it essentially $300 USD per person at the official exchange rate. That...

Does anyone have information about this route? Paysandu looks like the best option for border crossing.

Have checked a bunch of bus companies and can't find clear schedule information. Our travel time will be around January 2/3 2015.

Thanks, Kelley

Hi all!

Usually, when travelling on December 31 we buy a new year dinner at our hotel or at the one nearby.

This is not a club version, just dinner, music, some show (not obligatory at all), countdown and grapes (whatsoever) and champagne.

We started booking late and all good hotels were already booked. Our hotel will not make any Fiesta on the New year eve to countdown and greet New year. Several neighbouring hotel wrote to me that they either don't do it or do...

Hey everybody. Does anyone know the deal with getting boat from Iquitos to leticia? I heard there are week long tours but I was looking into less formal travel to just get down the river and then back a few days later?
Any cool suggestions on how to do this would be much appreciated!

I've trawled through the posts in this section and also had a good look at the threads on the forum on TripAdvisor, as well as reading a heap of blogs - and there seems to be vastly conflicting information about last minute deals to the Galapagos. Underneath I am going to list some of the conflicting information and what I would like to know (based on people who have actually done this, rather than a lot of the unhelpful posts from people who have speculated about Galapagos cruises based...

Hello, my travel plans for peru have changed quite significantly and now I will be spending some time in Bolivia before going to cusco, and from there into the amazon.

So I have been researching where I can go in the southern peruvian amazon and I have heard of this place called Timpia, a native community that appears to be open to outside visitors.

I had always preferred to go to somewhere...
