I've been in many countries of South - America. I love this continent and I am willing to help with anything regarding travel.

I'm good with itineraries, if I may say so myself; if you're at a loss what to do when and in which order, I could try to help you structure things a bit.

My knowledge is restricted to the southern cone and Andean states. I know very little of Brazil, the Guianas, Venezuela and Colombia.

meerola

I have lived in Cochabamba, Bolivia for a year in 1999-2000 and also during that time traveled in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Perú. My wife is Peruvian and has also lived in Ecuador. Together we are happy to share what we know with all travellers interested in the region. We can be contacted in Finnish, English or Spanish. Unfortunately we are oftentimes quite busy with work and other duties, and the response can get delayed. Sorry for that! Please let us know in your question after which date you no longer need the response. Also, please don't request information on formalities such as visas etc. since you should always ask your local embassy or consulate for up-to-date information.
