Hi,

I'm planning a trip to Peru and Bolivia in May, and have found myself stuck and a little nervous that getting in a tour to the Salar De Uyuni isn't going to be possible!

My current itinerary finds me in Cuzco on Friday, 22nd May and I'm flying out of La Paz on Saturday, 30th May. That leaves me a week to get down to Uyuni and back again - and not best placed to take advantage of the well recommended Expreso Del Sur (which seems to only leave on Tuesdays and Fridays).

Can getting down to Uyuni and back again be done? Perhaps I be looking at a different route to the salt flats?

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

Hi all,

I am putting together a holiday next April/May 2011 in South America and would like any advice available.
Depart Australia 16th April to Buenos Aires arriving 16th April, with my 26 year daughter Tara, we would like to see Montevideo, Rio de Janeiro, Salar/Uyuni, ending up in Cuzco for 2 days prior to doing the Inca Trail, then heading home via Los Angeles (1day). All in 3 weeks! can it be done?

I was thinking of going straight to Rio from Buenos Aires, Tara's birthday 17th April... then coming back to Buenos Aires, Montevideo etc any thoughts???

don't mind air travel or train, don't like buses for long trips.

Thanks,
Terry
