Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would've chosen less touristy locations and and would've tried to stay at a more authentic hotel or farm.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Nope, the region is very accustomed to tourism and everything went smoothly.

  • Packing tips?

    Pack for warm weather (70-80s) and rain.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Find a local guide to drive you around the region. Day rates aren't too pricey and you'll get a more authentic experience.

  • Any surprises?

    I was surprised to see that some of these places were much more touristy than described.
