Parillas and the Blue Dollar exchange, Argentina

If you've been following any of our previous posts, it's very apparent that the best place to get ripped off because you're a tourist, is by a cab driver.  When arriving at a new city, don't speak the language, and you have all your luggage with you and just want to get to your hotel and check in,...

One of the most beautiful features of Chile has to be its majestic Andes mountain ranges. We decided to see it for ourselves up close by taking a bus from Santiago, Chile to Mendoza, Argentina. This meant an 8 hour bus ride that traverses through the scenic pass that connects both...

Santiago, Chile

Due to our cancelled flight in Cusco, we ended up only having one full day to spend in Santiago. It left a lot more to be desired out of the city but we made the best of it by doing another walking tour to get a broad idea of what the city was all about. I would compare the layout of Santiago...

Arequipa & Ollantaytambo, Peru

Arequipa is known as the “Rome” of South America. The reason why? There’s a large population of devout Catholics here and the monasteries and churches are a grand dedication to Jesus and the Virgin Mary. We flew into Arequipa from Lima and were immediately met by the lights in the airport going...

Ballestas Island & Huacachina, Peru

Went on a tour with Peru Hop to visit Ballestas Island, which is referred to as the “poor man’s Galapagos.”  I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but after having done it, it definitely is the poor man’s version.  It was basically a boat ride out to a big cliff that had a lot of seagulls, some sea...
