Hi, I am in Santiago right now. I just purchased a Def 110 and having a roof top tent installed with the plans of heading to Copiapo to watch Dakar 2012. I will be leaving Santiago January 4th and probably arrive in Copiapo on the 6th. If your plans include Chile, please let me know. Perhaps we can hook up there?

I'm planning to be in Copiapo also, then head to Lima following a team. From there, I'm returning their support vehicle to Argentina.... unfortunately my bike won't fit in their vehicle, so I'll have to go get it. Anyone want a one-way ride south through Peru, etc?

For Brazil:

Well, don't miss Foz do Iguacu of course....

but other than that (I've only traveled along the western side):

Bonito - 21.27.47S / 56.28.47W - just south of the Gran Pantonal. It is a place in the hilly jungle where a mineral river (chrystal clear) flows thru caves where you can scuba and snorkel among thousands of fish. You can also raft down it. Great accomodation and very reasonable at every level including hostels or camping.

The Gran Pantonal itself - famous swamp/grasslands teeming with wildlife. South entrance: 19.13.47S / 57.25.26W
North entrance: 16.14.33S / 56.37.20W

Rio Verde (Mato Grosso do Sul) - 18.56.16S / 54-54-07W - 'Sete Quedas' hotel and campground. It is right beside a series of 7 waterfalls and pools. Amazing!

Cuiaba is a very cool laid back city in the jungle and there are a few interesting places just a few hours north that you could do day trips to.

Enjoy Brazil! It's a bit expensive, but the food and people are great!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
