With all the talk in the media of what is dangerous, sometimes it's easy to overlook what is NOT dangerous.

Forbes Traveler published an article about "not-so-dangerous" places. It give the rah rah treatment to some places that lots of people might have forgotten about.


Of course, things change all the time, and you'd be wise to keep up with changing political climates.

One tool to do this is from ASI group. http://www.asigroup.com/HOTSPOTS.asp

ASI monitors events occurring in areas of the world in which a client may have interests, expatriates living, or may travel to. Sign up for email updates and ASI will contact you if unfolding events or natural disasters may compromise safety. Cool!

I've got a group of four plus a couple of dogs that are going to make the trip beginning in mid-march 2010. We are going to continue through Panama - around the Dairen Gap - and ultimately make out way down into Tierra del Fuego. I don't see why we couldn't drop you in Panama. Get back to me if you are interested
