nice helpful guy. Unfortunately we wanted to have just a Quick clean up of the tires, but next day when we came, he cleaned everything and inside as well what we didn't wanted and charged us a lot for this, ended up paying 2400 uy for it. not a nice move, so ask for prices before! But a good place to leave the car before shipping.

Arranged the trip with Al Macedo (WhatsApp +55 45 99105-9964), he speaks very good English and does all the communication with Genivaldo, the skipper of the boat (Laura Vicuña). Approached him approx. 2 weeks before the trip.
Al was very responsive to all our questions and updated us almost daily on the schedule.
We were told to be at the harbor Friday 5 pm and embarked at 5:30.
Trip was very smooth, got to Porto Jofre after 3 days Monday night just before midnight. Disembarked at 6 am in daylight.
Negotiated 3000 BRL for Sprinter w/ 2 ppl. 500 deposit by PayPal, the rest after arriving.
Starlink on board for 50 BRL

Most expensive campground we have been in SouthAmerica! (€26 2 persons and a big rig, including a little breakfast). Nice place with beautiful view on the river, with swimmingpool and (very) hot thermal bath.

We tried to go here April 12, 2024 - road isn't plowed in winter only tracks were snowmobile tracks, so our stock 4Runner wasn't going to do it.

Great spot at the edge of the firebase air strip. There were three tables in the area so locals use this spot. View of the river is amazing, but no access to the river as the banks are very steep and high. As this is close to town, we had cell coverage.

Ana made the arrangements to ship our Ford Ranger camper for Ushuaia to Alaska adventure between Cartagena and Veracruz. Ana was introduced to us by others. Ana is keen to communicate and makes things happen. I saw good value in her confidence, port connectivity and delivering a reliable service. All-in-all a good experience.

Ana is very professional and get things done. She made the arrangements for our Ford Ranger camper on a Argentina to Alaska trip. You can count on her are the support team. Her language skills did not prove to be any obstacle.

A hub for Chinese cyclists to stopover before heading up towards the two passes on the Baima (white horse) Snow Mountain or cycling into Tibet. There are dorm beds (Tibetan decoration), or private rooms for 2-3 people. With private or shared bathrooms. All affordable and nice. Some are with lovely mountain views. You can also eat affordable, nutritious meals on site (simple standard Chinese dishes).

The highlight is a massive number of doodles on the wall left by cyclists!

Free permits available at the visitor centre. Just off the main road and lots of spots. No issues in 2WD promaster but it had been very dry. My dogs came across a dead dog out here that I had to call into the police so not my favourite spot to think of ☹️

Juan, Luisa, and Santi have been our guardian angels with helping us to resolve all of our camper problems. In addition to creating their own high quality overlanding products and incredible in-house solutions for vehicle/camper problems, they also work with amazing mechanics and workshops. Whatever problem you have, they will help you fix it and they’ll work with you every step of the way. Juan and Santi were instrumental in the reconstruction of significant parts of our damaged camper. Without their hard work and attention to detail we wouldn’t have gotten back on the road so quickly. We also have to give Santi a special thanks for keeping our spirits up throughout the stressful rebuild. We highly recommend working with the Gadgets 4x4 family. They are the best!

We paid 75pp for the tour of about 45 minutes, one of the best experiences we had in our 6 weeks in Ghana. Guide explains the history of why the local community decided to protect the monkeys, unlike elsewhere in Ghana. We walked along the paths through the Forrest, saw the mona and B/W Colobus & the guide explained some plants and trees and also a tree planting project for visitors to have trees named after them for a donation. We didn't do this but it was a nice idea. The place was quiet but has a lot of potential for tourism.

The road to reach the community is dirt but no problem, 2wd Sprinter.

This place got a new fence which makes it a lot smaller and you can‘t park at the lake any more. Further, they don’t allow staying overnight any more unless you ask very friendly and pay 100npr. Very busy during the day and no toilets.

Averigüe si podía arreglar una perdida de diesel en la bomba inyectora y me derivaron a otro mecánico de la ciudad. Terminé en guapiles, laboratorio digasa. Excelente servicio y me solucionaron la pérdida de combustible en el mismo día.
