what are different websites to book domestic flights inside Peru. I know Latam has different price points for peru vs external. Kiwi is mixed luck, because of their additional prices when you try to do more add-ons.
Honduras overall is not very safe, except for the islands. Roatan and Utila are totally safe and recommended, mainland not that much.
is anyone in El Salvador?
๐Ÿ›ฌ ylztfjrj just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ป San Salvador,El Salvador, #latin-america
Yep, in El Salvador for Labitconf
I've rather been to AdoptingBitcoin
now in El Zonte
Hey all - I have a month off in Feb where Iโ€™m thinking of going to Latin America. Return to Belize, Colombia, Peru or Chile - or go somewhere new to Mexico.

Is there anyone here who has knowledge/information on what itโ€™s currently looking like - covid wise?
Are the cities open?
Any night life/bars/restaurants?
What about museums/anything public?
If youโ€™re going to bocas go to โ€œNowhereโ€
Followingpoint_up
All open in Colombia. But you do have to show Covid vaccination certificate to be able to get in to some places like bars or any crowded places.
Not really enforced everywhere but non vaccinated people might have a hard time trying to get in to some places.
Logistics question- do you need the physical card? Or is a phone picture ok?
A picture in your phone is totally ok.
Perรบ, you have to wear the double mask in most places and I heard that there was a curfew at 1am (but I sleep early since I work for Europe, so I haven't noticed when I was there :joy:). Mรฉxico regular mask in closed placed, (very) few shops are applying that limited capacity rule, but I feel that's it, feels like no restrictions at all.
Has anyone gone to Trinidad & Tobago ever? Impressions?

Best app to learn at least the basics of Spanish before arriving? So far I can tell I am not a fan of Duolingo. Babbel and Mondly look better.
Baselang, verbling
Hey guys. i am currently in Medellin Colombia if anyone around here hit me up
There are quite a few of us here. Try in #colombia
I've always wanted to, let me know what you think if you go ๐Ÿ‘€

Unfortunately my native is czech which is I am afraid one of the languages not too many people want to learn:) I will check it out anyway, thanks heaps!
Yeah.... Hellotalk felt like tinder / mail order husband to me. I got really good with answering the same 5 questions about my hobbies and why I don't have a boyfriend...
It took a couple of friends of mine many tries before finding guys that weren't creepy. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ

language transfer is my favorite (in conjunction with spaced-repetition flashcard app). curious to check out some these other suggestsions

Anyone currently in Buenos Aires currently? Looking at potentially visiting in January. How are things on the ground there? Any Covid restrictions?
phn2mo
probably #argentina is a better idea ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ah, missed that one! Thanks U0210PL9Q9Fbr />Will re-post there :)
Anyone had a long layover in Santiago de Chile? I have +20 hours there and I am not sure if I should get out of the airport or stay in
I live in Santiago de Chile. 20 hours is decent to get to visit museums, restaurants and even go to the tallest building in latin america.
I had something similar in Kiev and just end up paying for access to the business lounge. Got to get some well needed sleep, shower and food.
What day of the week and between what hours? from the airport to the city center could take you like 30-40 min by car/taxi, depending in traffic, and it will cost you around 20usd. There is also a bus that leave you in the subway, but I think it would be slower.
I'm not quite sure if you can do that U01F9MARC6B. because of covid restrictions you would need to take the PCR at the airport and you are supposed to do a quarantine until they get the results. And that's the shortest way, which is possible if you have your vaccination scheme validated by the chilean government (which you need to apply with weeks of anticipation). because if you don't, you would need to to do a 7 days quarantine
I think the PCR results takes them 12 hours (I think that was what it took from my last travel)
I don't know if in this case they are going to check if you are doing the quarantine, but anyway, if you try to skip it and visit some places, you couldn't do most of the activities because most of them will ask you for a document you won't have available until que quarantine ends
which is the "Pase de movilidad"
well I cannot send links because I'm new hahahah
but I was going to share the official information
Fluent Forever app
possibly a bit expensive but worth it if youโ€™re taking it seriously
What place in LatAm is the most similar to Canggu, Bali?
What I mean is a place that has
โ€ข professional coworking (AC, good chairs, fast wifi)
โ€ข convenient and plenty of food options (ideally to order, or nearby and fast)
โ€ข gym
โ€ข not a dense city, so has nice nature, ideally a beach
โ€ข community, so itโ€™s big enough that you can meet people
Gracias
tom1mo
thanks everyone! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
following ๐Ÿ‘€
Yeah my big concern was if it was possible to get out of the airport given the restrictions. ktajqskfhzfud itโ€™s on a Saturday
Ideally I would chill at a hotel but I canโ€™t really risk missing my connecting flight
Any airports hacks? I was also looking st the VIPs sections yoqftwoadm but for some reason the max amount in Santiago that you can stay is 2 hours. Not sure how strict is that
It's probably not that strict if you pay for the time. They usually charge on a per hour basis unless you have a business or first class ticket. Some CC also give you access to those.
Honestly having some place to rest and take a shower is worth the extra $$ imo and they usually come with unlimited food and drinks.
sometimes VIP space is closed, idk why, at midnight ๐Ÿ˜ž
Yeah that too ๐Ÿ‘† I think it depends on how busy is the airport, if there are not many flights at that time it kinda makes sense.
I think you best bet is to book a hotel inside the airport. but honestly I don't know how is it working nowadays
I was thinking Santiago, Chile which is rather safe and close to beach + mountains but then itโ€™s not big enough to meet people and people are rather โ€œcoldโ€.

Maybe someplace in Brazil or Colombia might make the cut
Tulum, if you donโ€™t mind paying for it
Yeah I guess the best itโ€™s to be patient then. Thanks guys ๐Ÿ˜„
Also just wanna say that I returned to Santiago, Chile yesterday - you wonโ€™t be able to leave the airport anyway. Chile has a process for foreigners to visit now and that takes months.
Has there been any more shootings in Tulum? The cartel has been taking over based on what I hear from my devs from Mexico.
I would pick Puerto Vallarta over Tulum based on your specs.
Internet is shit pretty much everywhere outside CDMX
Does anyone have recommendations for Belize? Looking for a place to stay for a month with 20Mbit or better internet connection. I see Umaya Village is recommended a lot, but Iโ€™m trying to find something more to the north.
Umaya was ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I am just packing for Latin America, travelling light but would like to do some climbing (Huayna Potosรญ, Patagonia etc). I found some companies provide you with all equipment even jacket, pants, gloves. Has anybody done this? Is it a good idea or I am better of bringing my own stuff over. Cheers
By climbing do you mean rock climbing, or hiking? For hiking I would recommend to bring your own stuff, renting is not always available and is usually overpriced. Maybe if you are travelling for 3 months and just hiking once renting can make sense, otherwise I'd personally bring my own stuff. For rock climbing, I wouldn't bring more than shoes.
tom1mo
mostly hiking.. I will try to fit in it my luggage, thanks mate!
If you going for rock climbing Iโ€™d say bring your own shoes as thatโ€™s always hardest to find the right size etcโ€ฆ, renting the harness and chalk is cheaper anyways
tom1mo
Done packing.. out of 20kg, at least 10 is sport equipment ๐Ÿ’ช

Anybody in Dominican Republic by any chance? Hit me up if you wanna catch up!

I must have overlooked this channel.. cheers!
Hi everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹ , I'm in Guadeloupe. Anyone there ?
๐Ÿ‘‹ I just came back from spending a month in Quito and Iโ€™m considering another trip to Latin America in March. Thereโ€™s tons of stuff I didnโ€™t get to see in Ecuador so I was thinking on going back there for at least 2 months but Iโ€™d also be open to visiting other countries (Colombia and Costa Rica come to mind). My priorities are good nature/hiking spots, safety and a good internet connection. Any recommendations?
As a Colombian, I would recommend my country, but be aware that we have some internal security problems (specifically in south country side and some capitals, like Medellin)

Some safe places are the states in the center and north coast. Some cool places to check

โ€ข Cartagena
โ€ข Santamarta
โ€ข Villa de leyva
โ€ข Tunja
โ€ข Pereira
โ€ข Salento
โ€ข Manizales
โ€ข Natural parks in โ€œsantander statesโ€ and โ€œeje cafeteroโ€
Some capitals fairly safe with beautiful surroundings (little towns, parks), but keep your eyes wide open

โ€ข Bogota
โ€ข Cali
โ€ข Barranquilla
โ€ข Medellin (
Iโ€™ll recommend u to avoid south, like Cauca country side, my home state ๐Ÿ˜… (Balboa, Argelia, Bordo are places with active war conflict, not very safe for foreigners, but u can go there with appropriate company )
Awesome stuff, thanks U02QSHS91J7!

I'm gonna be heading over to check it out next year sometime, interested to link up with fellow liberty minded individuals ๐Ÿ‘‹
๐Ÿ›ฌ rxrvikvrhn just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ณ San Pedro Sula,Honduras, #latin-america
Haha. Any ideas which area is good to rent a place?
Punda is the main center apparently. Bit pricey there. So I'm across the bridge in Otrobanda
Did you get an airbnb? I don't want to have to rent a car so would want to be walking distance to stores ideally, or maybe a bike ride away. I'm also surprised that there don't seem to be any direct flights from the NY or Boston or CT area and everything has a layover in Miami
Yes, got an Airbnb and also don't plan to have a car (other than for few weekends maybe)

Here are some other great Latin American options for nomading:
Antigua, Guatemala
Boquete, Panama
Cuenca, Ecuador
Quito, Ecuador
Suesca, Colombia
Cartagena, Colombia
Arequipa, Peru
Bariloche, Argentina
Valparaiso, Chile
Ecuador is very underrated IMO. Thereโ€™s tons of places within 3 hours of Quito that are great for hiking on a weekend trip. I found people to be very friendly and the city seemed reasonably safe
Hey! I am headed to El Salvador in a week and was wondering if anyone has some suggestions of places to visit there? Right now I have Suchitoto, El Tunco, Playa El Palmarcito, Santa Ana Volcano and Impossible National Park on the list. Any other suggestions would be great!
What are the Covid restrictions like in Columbia and other Latin American countries?
Hi folks, Aeromexico or Viva Air Columbia (most expensive rate with check in included) for a flight to Medellin from CDMX? Or are they equally bad/good in terms of quality?
I always had a good experience with Aeromexico, never tried viva air tho, maybe itโ€™s better, I would say Aeromexico was good enough for me ๐Ÿ˜‡
both are good options
Thanks guys :)
```Hi all! Still thinking of going to Curacao for a couple weeks soon (likely 1/15-2/1) but I just saw that you need a test on your 3rd day there too at your own expense...does anyone have experience with this? Also wondering how hard it will be to get tested in order to get back t the US```

For anyone in Mexico City, planning a meetup to grab drinks tonight. All are welcome! DM me fore details :)
Are Selina's good bets for good wifi? Staying short term but need good upload speed as I am a teacher
Hello. Does anyone know what land border crossing between Argentina/Brazil/Paraguay is like? Are PCR tests required and still enforced in this case?
I did move my flights to a week later just to give Omicron some more time to go away. slightly concerned with getting the PCR test in the US back within 48h. on Curacao I donโ€™t have any concerns that they will manage to do tests within a day or two. the 3rd day test is booked right away at the airport on immigration as far as I understand
I wonder how much it is, im guessing 70-100 on the 3rd day and then potentially again to get a test for the next destination. guess it is what it is but the 48 hr for PCR is pretty unrealistic. i think im going to need to pay 100 for a "PCR express" test at an urgent care center by me which says i'll have results back the next day. all others covered by insurance have 1-3 day turnaround times so too risky it seems
im thinking of going this saturday and staying until the very end of Jan because i most likely will have to be in Florida for a work event beginning on Feb. hopefully 2 weeks will still be worth it!
From what I have read here the majority are, but it would be good to provide a specific place you want to visit in case anyone has more info to provide
Varies by location but generally good. I've stayed at two in Panamรก and so far it's been great
๐Ÿ›ฌ vivohwqxaqcmjmg just arrived in Lago de Coatepeque,El Salvador, #latin-america
I hear only good things about Aeromexico, and only bad things about Viva
