We visited the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia with my family and then we went to Peru to do the Ausangate Trek. The landscape absolutely surreal and fascinating. I can not find a word to describe how beautiful it is to stand in the largest...More
We brought our 7-year boy to visit the Uyuni salt flat in December 2018. It was absolutely a fantastic trip! The salt flat is so beautiful that no words can describe! It certainly worth the time and effort to make a trip to go there...More
A 3-day trip here was our final part of being in South America. For 1 day it was just white and salty, but during the other days we visited lagoons with flamingos. Those spots were beautiful. Now, to imagine the altitudes we've been to and...More
Nature sure knows how to amaze and does it in spades with Salar de Uyuni (the Salt Flats), The vastness of this stunning place is truly mesmerising to see! We took a tour here and we stop off the train cemetery prior to the Salt...More
The Salar de Uyuni was the highlight of our recent trip to Bolivia and I'm so happy we had the opportunity to see it. We took a two day/one night trip and, in retrospect, I wished we'd done a three day tour and spent less...More
Okay so I visited the place in July and I must say that I was highly impressed. The largest salt flat in the world and it can be seen from space. You can visit the place in both wet and dry season. Both are great...More
We did a 3D/2N tour with Sol de Manana. As we were a group of six, we opted to go without an English guide (despite the fact we didn't have any Spanish) as we all wanted to be in the same 4x4. This didn't affect...More
I would ask what you would skip Atacama in preference for? If you are short on time and have to catch a flight then you would have little choice. However, there are so many natural attractions accessible from San Pedro, I... More
I would ask what you would skip Atacama in preference for? If you are short on time and have to catch a flight then you would have little choice. However, there are so many natural attractions accessible from San Pedro, I certainly wouldn't suggest that you skip them. A quick search of day trips out will give you some idea of the variety of organised visits. All highly recommended!
It all depends on customs. Normally it can take anywhere from an hour to many hours. I wouldn’t count on anything other than a long, frustrating wait when you get there. We arrived around 10 am and waited 2.5 hours. We were... More
It all depends on customs. Normally it can take anywhere from an hour to many hours. I wouldn’t count on anything other than a long, frustrating wait when you get there. We arrived around 10 am and waited 2.5 hours. We were behind a huge bus. Good luck!

Hi there, We've been there twice. Once in the month of July and once in December. May through July is winter for them and it gets a little cold at nights only. During the day is nice and warm, but at nights it gets very cold. In December is the rainy season and the salt flats looks like a mirror, but in the months of May through July looks nice as well. I think you're going to love it. People are vey friendly and honest. Good Luck and post some pics.
Girls Trip to South America Peru, Bolivia & Brazil July Aug (4 Replies)
Hi I'm female 24 and have decided to travel to South America for 6 weeks with 2 other girls who are 22 and 23 (one of which is only coming for 4 weeks). We have just booked are flights from UK mid July arriving in Peru and back from Rio end of August and hoping to fit Bolivia in the middle! 2 of us have done Thailand before but from what I'm aware South America is better to do with STA which costs a few grand or in just a larger number. Looking for other girls to join us on our treck...More

Hey! American (Ohio) guy here (not a girl) but my good friend and I are doing pretty much the same trip from the end of April to early June. We're flying into Ecuador and doing a circle to Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. If any of that overlaps with you plans we'd definitely be up for creating a group. Thanks, Hershel
Brazil/Peru/Bolivia Itinerary Help (4 Replies)
Hi all! In July, I'll be moving to Buenos Aires for about 5 months. Since this will be my first time on the continent, I'm planning a cross-continent trip to explore as much as I can before returning home. I'll be traveling from early December to early January. I really, REALLY want to see Machu Picchu in Peru and São Paulo in Brazil. I'm hoping to take a tour of Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia as well, and I'm interested in Lake Titicaca in Peru and Brasilia/Rio de Janeiro in...More

"Which cities have the best holiday festivities? I'll be there for Christmas and New Year's, as well as my birthday. :)" Rio de Janeiro: Rio’s Ano Novo, also known in Brazilian-Portuguese by the French word Réveillon, is probably the most anticipated New Year's Eve celebration in the world. Tradition is for New Year’s Eve revelers in Rio to wear white in honor of Iemanjá, the Goddess of the Sea. Revered by millions of people in Brazil, Iemanjá grants good luck and blessings for the...More

Looks like a fabulous trip! Here's some pointers: 1) Lima to Cusco on an overnight bus is not recommended, the price might be cheaper than a flight, but it will take 20 hours of winding mountain roads, verses a 75 min flight! 2) Too many days in Ollantaytambo.....this is only a very small village, not much to do here other than the ruins. If you want to explore the Valley then centrally located in Urubamba is better. 3) 2 Days in Mapi would be better there are some cheapish...More
