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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

"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
