    Travel with children in Chile, Argentina

    You definitely won't want to miss the Patagonian region, both Chile and Argentina. El calafate, perito moreno, Torres del Paine, el chalten (for the hikers), puerto natales, isla Magdalena, Ushuaia. Just amazing. Also love the atacama desert and Santiago. Buenos Aires is also a vibrant city. Enjoy! almost 4 years ago

    I check out of my hotel at 12pm. My train does not depart until 5pm. Is there a recommended safe place to put my luggage?

    Did you check if your hotel has a storage room, where they can keep your luggage? I don't recall if the train station on Jacksonville has lockers almost 4 years ago

    Best place to start travelling in Brazil?

    I believe the main point to decide wether you start in Manaus or not is about the weather. The Amazon is devided, basically, in 2 season: when it rains a lot and the river is full or when it doesn't rain so much and the river is lower. I stayed in a lodge (amazing, recommend: Amazon turtle lodge, you can check on trip advisor) in February: not so much rain, not so hot, river was lower: some river beach to swim at!! My husband went also on November: very very hot and humid, river was higher, different landscape, the animals were more active. Another thing: how are you planning to go from Manaus to other parts of the country? It is possible to go by bus, but I would recommend flying. Depending on where you plan to go it's almost the same price and the roads may be bad. I also love to go to the northeast (if you like beach). Lencois maranhenses was one of the best places I've seen my entire life! You would have to fly to São Luis (maranhao) and go to a city called barreirinhas. I plan to go to Jalapão, TO, some day. It's the "Brazilian desert", wonderful nature and it's said to be stunning. About South America, I've been to Patagonia (Chile and Argentina, including the W-trek in Torres deal Paine), Bolivia and Peru, and I think you can't miss neither. If you have any other questions fell free to ask! almost 4 years ago

    Going from Brazil to Argentina, tips and suggestions?

    How do you intend to cross? It is possible to drive or get a bus (no train transportation in Brazil), but once you ony have 2 weeks may be a waste of time; so perhaps flying is the best option. You can fly either from São Paulo or rio and to buenos aires or straight to the Patagonia region (in case your planning to go there). As said before, Patagonia is simply amazing! Don't miss el calafate and el chalten - I liked it even better than Ushuaia. We also crossed to chile and made the W-trek in Torres del Paine. Food is delicious no pretty much the same as eating in any big city,nothing to be concerned about. If your going to Brazil in the summer, don't forget to use bug spray: watch out for dengue (transmitted by a mosquito bite) About accommodation, in Tio I found better to rent an apartment in airBnb than booking a hotel through the tipsy all sites (cheaper, much much cheaper), but, as always, try to find a trustworthy source. Have a great trip! You will enjoy for sure almost 4 years ago

    Do I need malaria pills for Bolivia, Argentina, or Chile?

    In theory, by what you say, you won't be passing in a malaria zone (Amazon forest, for example), but you should see advice from a doctor specialized in travelers health (he /she may give you advice in many subjects, including in how to deal with the altitude you will experience in this trip). Always before traveling you should visit a travel clinic. about 4 years ago
