Accommodation Review – Hotel Avenida, Uyuni, Bolivia

If you’re coming to Uyuni to hook up with a tour to the salt flats, there’s a good chance you’ll need to stay a night or two in the town of Uyuni. I stayed the night before the tour and the night after the tour, and I ended up staying at Hotel Avenida, although originally it wasn’t my first choice.

Accommodation Review – Galapagos

I thought I’d do a quick review of the three hotels I stayed at whilst on the Galapagos Islands. If you’re going there independently there are plenty of accommodation options but you should be warmed that they are pretty pricey all said. There may be the possibility of dorms. I’ll review here by island in order that I stayed. Isla

Accommodation Review – Hotel La Dolce Vita, Sucre, Bolivia

Well. The name says it all, doesn’t it? Sucre is a delightful city in South-Central Bolivia which is definitely worth a short stop if you’re there.

As photos often do when they are chosen and formatted for a business website. The website is here – Hotel Cupula. You’ll see what I mean it’s wonderful use

Accommodation Review – Gringo Bill’s, Machu Picchu Town

Despite the rather strange name, I was rather looking forward to staying at Gringo Bill’s in Aguas Calientes, also known as Pueblo Machu Picchu (Machu Picchu Town). I imagined to be something of a tourist institution I guess, run by a crazy old American dude called Bill with a constantly packed bar of drunk foreigners living it up like crazy.

Accommodation Review – Posada de Cacique, Arequipa, Peru

Arequipa is a large town (or is it a small city?) in the high Andes in Peru. It’s home to a famous mummy which can be seen at a local museum. It’s a pretty town, hilly, interesting. From here I went on a day trip to the Culco Canyon (not advisable, take longer if you can), and it was my
