    Everyone should go join the “meet up” page (So far there is 3 of us haha)

    I think there are two meet up pages because I was moved to a different one.

    I’m going on the Argentina and Brazil trip for Jan 19, which I think is just the second half of The Adventurer! Save some energy for the second half of the trip :)

    Hi guys just wanting to know some advice since you have completed your Adventurer Trip in South America. Ill be arriving in Lima on my own in July, is it easy/safe to get a taxi to the hotel?

    Hi Nathalie,

    I think you’d have to be pretty unlucky to get a bad experience if you made sure you jumped into a licensed “radio” taxi BUT then again there is probably good reason for every travel advisory and tour operator recommending against getting a taxi or public bus from Lima’s airport.

    Pre-arranged taxi services (You can usually get them via your hotel) are reasonably priced around $25USD. That’s what I did and I am happy I did as it meant one less thing to worry about at 2am. :)

    FYI there’s an ATM in the arrivals area which spits out both USD and Soles but the rate isn’t amazing so I’d recommend dragging some USD over there from a local exchange with you and extracting Soles from local ATMs (I tried getting Soles in Brisbane and had no luck). When dealing in USD you need to give them exact amounts as they generally do a currency conversion and give you change in Soles, so there’s potential to be ripped off. My taxi driver did not want to be paid in Soles, he wanted USD.

    Have a great trip!
