information please
Hello, I ve just read your article about your experience in Santa Martha Rescue Animal and I d like to have the same kind of experience.. But the internet web site doesn t work... How can i have more information about this voluntary project ? Thank you very Much !

Unfortunately Santa Marta closed down. I don't have the full story, though there were rumours flying around that the animals were being exploited etc. From our experience it was wonderfully run by committed people and committed volunteers and is a crying shame!

Colombia the South guide book
We used the country guide of the lonely planet. Very out of date because a new one is due soon. You get a good idea for what prices should be by looking at hostel booking sites and then just what you actually pay in your first couple of restaurants.

Hello! Just wondering which guidebook you use, I hate it when prices are wrong.. /josefina

Noel Kempf
Loving the posts! We didn't make it into Noel Kempf at all. We spent many hours researching routes in, transport options, guides and trying to link up with other travellers to go into Noel Kempf and in the end had to pass it up. We were also restricted financially (travelling on NZ$$), but the logistics were what killed it in the end. Unfortunately there were so many stories like yours and many instances of people getting stranded. I do hope that they succeed in building slightly better infrastructure, but the management of national parks is a concern across all of South America.... Venezuela where there are no toilets and there are fields of toilet paper and sh*t, or Peru where there are toilets but full to overflowing (even though you pay $USD60 to enter) resulting in more toilet fields or even the famous Torres del Paine where some of the bridges are hazards.... Great to hear you both are having such amazing adventures. We also loved Madidi and Chalalan!
