Southern Patagonia was majestic and stunning just as we expected, but Colin and I agree that it’s a very tough travel destination – so difficult that we’re conflicted on what to recommend. We’ll get into the reasons behind our conflicted recommendation in this post. Patagonia was one tough nut to crack on a budget and a bit of a letdown as a result. Hopefully with our information, you can do it better!
This post has some personal commentary but focuses on sharing as much information, tips, and recommendations as we can remember them. When we were planning our road trip, we had trouble finding the information we needed, so we hope that this can help you with planning your own trip around Patagonia.
The Catedral de Sal is an underground Roman Catholic church built within the tunnels of a salt mine 200 meters underground. It’s an hour or two outside the city of Bogotá in Cundinamarca, Colombia which is near the town of Zipaquirá, Colombia.

I’ve crossed several borders in my time – a lot by air, but a lot by bus as well. This was the most difficult border that I’ve crossed. We could have been more prepared, but there wasn’t a lot of information telling us what to expect. We had also heard from friends that you did not need a visa in advance for Bolivia as a U.S. citizen. And it’s true – you don’t. We just proved that. But you do need more than just you and your passport. Here was our experience, and hopefully it will help you avoid the same mistakes...
