Bring along a phrase book of Latin American Spanish, it will help for all those day to day questions you may have problems with.

Make sure you have all of the necessary vaccinations before you go. Your travel agent will be able to tell you which ones are recommended by a travel doctor.

Be sure to take licensed taxi’s only, your tour guide or hotel will be able to assist with finidng the right transportation options.

Money can be difficult to access in some countries such as Cuba, be sure to have a small amount of cash on you before you depart just to be safe.

The local cuisine in South and Central America is quite different to what we experience here in Australia. We recommend trying some Ceviche in Peru and some chilaquiles for breakfast in Mexico.
