What Is Your Favourite
I would have to say Salar De Uyuni in Bolivia, although it was possibly the coldest I’ve ever been in my life. The vast, unique landscape, interesting salt-brick buildings, colourful lakes and incredible sunsets completely won me over.
The best place I’ve stayed is Casa Elemento nestled in the mountains above Minca. It stood out to me as there is a giant hammock which juts out over the green mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Not only do you have spectacular views, but the peace & tranquillity up there is magnificent.
As someone who loves trekking, I found the 4-day Santa Cruz trek in Northern Peru to be an unforgettable experience. Although it was a personal challenge battling with the altitude, the scenery in this area is unforgettable and waking up surrounded by nature every day was wonderful.
Top Travel Tip
Try to allow enough time to truly immerse yourself in the areas you visit. The temptation is always to fit as much in as you can, but from personal experience I’ve found myself regretting not giving one destination the time it deserves.
Top Packing Tip
SPF! SPF! SPF! Even on cloudy, colder days I found the sunburn made a surprise appearance. I discovered it was quite hard to find in Latin America, and when I did it was very expensive!
