  • Music tours in Cuba
  • Sat, 17 Jun 2017 23:04:58 GMT
  • Hola Travellerspointe Amigos! I am going to Cuba with three friends, leaving from Cancun, in September. We are mostly interested in music, dance and cultural activities. Three of us are Spanish-speaking. Because our time is limited to one week, I'm thinking a tour would be best. Does anyone have any suggestions for small or private tours/ tour guides that would get us to authentic musical venues and dance clubs, and maybe some lessons or sitting in on jams ...

  • Roadtrip, Vancouver- Patagonia
  • Tue, 13 Jun 2017 19:58:45 GMT
  • Hi! My partner and I are looking to do a roadtrip from Vancouver, Canada to Antartic Chile about a year and a half from now, we're looking for just the basic start up information, like budget, gear (like a good gps), how to take a Washington licence plate over multiple boarders, and safety tips for young travellers and driving on the mountain roads. We will be roughing it, using a car-top tent setup. The hope is that we take our ... [Posted by Emilyaway - Jun 13, 11:58]

  • Lake Titicaca - day tour or stay the night
  • Mon, 29 May 2017 01:56:11 GMT
  • I have been thinking of skipping Puno and Lake Titicaca and go straight from Cusco to Arequipa, but on the other hand I think that I shouldn't miss Lake Titicaca when I am in that part of the world. One option is to spend two nights in Puno and from there take an organised day tour to the islands. Another option is to spend one night in Puno, one night on Taquile or Amantani and then one more night in Puno ... [Posted by MalenaN - May 28, 17:56]
