I am at the early stages of a planned trip to south america ( Venezuala, Columbia, Ecuador and Peru ).
I am thinking about doing the tourist stuff eg ( Angel Falls, sports activities in Merida , Galapagus Islands, Nazca Lines and Machu Pichu ).
What i would like to know from people thats been to these places is recommendations of things to do and places to see that are a bit off the beaten track and where people had interesting experiences.
I am also thinking about spending a bit longer in columbia to learn spanish so if anyone knows a good and reasonably priced school or volunteer exchange program could you let me know.
Any advice is greatly appreciated thanks
Spend your day in La Ciudad Perdida also called The Lost City..I am sure it would be an experience for you of a lifetime.. Colombia , is one of the best city ti learn Spanish in South America, I suggest you to Bogota, Cali, or Medellin for Spanish courses in Colombia...
Thanks for the reply just googled the destination and it definetly appeals to me its what i was looking for. I haven't really done any research on columbia as my girlfriend has relatives there.
I fyou know of any other gems in the other countries them let me know....
if you really look for off th beaten tracks tours, you can check this agency (wiracocha tours peru) which is the specialist of these kind of tours in Peru
I ve made several of their tours in june and I recommend it, really worth it
have a nice trip
