If you like interesting conversation with fellow travelers, and sipping a cup of coffee or tea, while relaxing on a comfy couch, reading English newspapers or magazines, stop by the South American Explorers Clubhouse in Lima Peru like we did. The clubhouse is located in Miraflores at Calle Piura #135. I was surprised to find the library full of scientific research volumes, and the huge collection of maps of the Amazon Basin.

It was a pleasure to meet Camille Ulmer, the manager of the Lima clubhouse. He was working on some new ideas for the South American Explorers website. I asked him if the world economic recession had affected the number of visitors to the Lima clubhouse. He told me it is the slow season now, but the numbers are up from last year during the same time period.

I was impressed that Felicita the office manager, and Laura the assistant manager, worked so hard. Oh, they were friendly and took time answer my questions, but they got right back to typing.

I have been a member of the South American Explorers Club for several years. The membership dues are $60. I think it is worth the $60 just for the on-line South America Explorer quarterly magazine, and the weekly e-newsletter, but if you travel to South America you can easily save the price of your membership by using the companies that offer a 10% discount to South America Explorer members…such as, Dawn on the Amazon.

Thanks for the tip! I’ve never heard of the South America Explorers’ Club, but it sounds like a great way to get information and discounts, and make friends and connections. I travel in South America every year so I should look into it.
