Toilet Times in Peru

Toilet – well a hole in the floor. Floating Reed Islands off Copacabana, Peru. Local luxury travel experts would definitely warn you of all the accommodations that have such poor unhygienic utilities. Try avoiding such risks as your health is more important than any other sacrifice you have to make as you proceed with your family travel. As a parent of a single parent travels with a kid, I do not just care about my health but his health as well.

Note: The shower is OVER the toilet!

One of the worst places we ever stayed and I was told it was originally a jail but not sure if this is true but the rooms were so pokey it might well be.  We left upon check-in (actually we ran away, but did pay the bill, and had a donkey and cart move our luggage). Asuncion, Paraguay.

Campo Grande, Brazil is where we found this seaside toilet and toilets seemed to be used as pot plants as we spotted them in the streets.

Not sure how the sideways cistern works, but the walls are made of salt – Salt Hotel Museum, Salt Flats, Bolivia

The Low Roll

Wondered why my son was so long in the loo – well this Santa Cruz, Bolivia toilet roll was 1 meter/yard away from the seat, but 6 inches above the ground.

Doesn’t even work for a short person??!!

Toilet Times Ecuador

My son comes back from the bathroom and tells me they ‘pecker soap’.

It was odd but effective. Quito, Ecuador.

Salt Mine

These bathrooms are at the Salt Mine Cathedral, Zipaquira, Colombia. The ceiling is salt rock. They are 180 meters underground, and more than 1 km walk inside the tunnels.

This Bano is in the street in Guatavita, Colombia. The steps are so steep and people can see in the little window. But I am grateful it existed that day 🙂

Outside Paper

This toilet is in Bogota, Colombia. You need to anticipate prior to entry on the quantity of loo paper required.

Toilet Times Panama

The shared toilet

This bathroom is in Sona, Panama – have a good think about this! We got to share one toilet roll.

Also toilet paper goes in the bin – no flushing. I guess if men chat and go, why can’t women?

Roadside Stop

Can’t say I enjoyed using this toilet. It was at the roadside stop in Panama. The stink was pretty bad too.

Toilet Times The USA – Arizona

The Cowgirls get to use a gun as a handle going into these washrooms.

The Cowboys’ toilet in Grand Canyon. My son says it was showdown behind those doors? Alas, he has to use the ladies bathrooms if other men are in there.

I am not sure why people need a sign like this. Of all places, it was in Dandenong Australia when we went to visit Puffing Billy.

    • Yes I have a load to update on this – check back at the end of next week and I’ll have it done! It is fun sneaking into bathrooms taking photos

  1. It’s quite common in tourist places here to have similar signs. People around the world are more used to “a hole in the ground”-toilets than the kind of seats and water-flushed toilets we are familiar to. So their (natural) position is squat, and they try as good as it gets on the seat because sitting doesn’t come to their mind.
    Check out also the squatty potty. We are the ones doing it wrong actually. (I love the videos on your youtube – awesome).
