Latin America: This Week on BootsnAll
Latin America: This Week on BootsnAll If the journey is supposed to be the reward, someone forgot to tell the bus drivers in Bolivia. Latin America routinely ranks highly among indie travelers for being budget friendly and, for the most part, for having a decent tourist infrastructure. It’s also handy that much of the region speaks some form of Spanish – learn the basics of one language and you can get by for a good long while. Getting around Latin America, however, is far from a uniform experience. This week on BootsnAll we’re talking about Latin America, but not just the transportation. We’re kicking things off with an admonition to take your kids to Mexico despite what you’ve read in the news. Later in the week, you’ll read about some of the adrenaline-pumping activities you can enjoy in Chile, get tips for visiting the famous Salt Flats of Bolivia, and learn about planning an extended trip in South America.

Head South with BootsnAll This Week
Head South with BootsnAll This Week This week on BootsnAll, we’re heading south – to South and Central America, that is! It’s Latin America week so we’re taking a look at the many draws of these two regions, from the beautiful – and all too often overlooked – national parks of South America, to the many Latin American markets (and how to navigate them). We’ll be exploring Bolivia, riding down the World’s Most Dangerous Road, touring the expansive lt Flats of Salar de Uyuni in southwestern Bolivia, and relaxing on the beach in Isla del Sol in the middle of Lake Titicaca. We’ll also check out five reasons to go coast to coast in Panama, from the atmospheric streets of the Casco Viejo to the sleepy island of Boca Brava. This week we’re also launching a new weekly column focused on round the world travel. In coming weeks we’ll cover everything from why to go, to how to plan your route and budget your funds, to what countries and experiences to add to your trip. So if you’re considering an RTW trip, or are just looking for more travel inspiration, be sure to check in Wednesday.
