You just never know when a volcano may blow up on you!


For our own medical emergency and medevac services while traveling, we carry insurance with MEDEX Insurance Services, Inc. of Baltimore, MD. They also provide trip cancellation insurance, which covers trip disruptions due to civil unrest (consult with MEDEX for details). We highly recommend trip cancellation and disruption insurance for countries such as Bolivia, which is prone to experiencing strikes and road blockages. We have found MEDEX's rates reasonable and their personnel easy to deal with. For information, call 1-800-732-5309 or visit their webpage at

We do recommend trip insurance, after all, a single misstep and...well, you never know when you might need insurance! Of course, some people are just plain uninsurable! [Tikal pyramid and waterfall jump photos courtesy of Philip Greer.]
