Lake Titicaca: Lake Views from Hotels

When you’re visiting Lake Titicaca in Peru, you’ll definitely want a hotel with a view of the lake. At the Sonesta Posadas del Inca Lake Titicaca, all of the rooms have a sweeping, panoramic view of the lake. The hotel also has llamas and alpacas roaming the grounds!

 

The lake view from this bedroom at Titilaka is pretty stunning too. Love that freestanding bathtub!

Tips for Uploading Your Video Reviews

It doesn’t take very long to shoot a hotel video review. Sixty seconds is all you need to show an area of the hotel where you are staying and tell us what you think about it. Uploading your videos though? That can sometimes be a different story. Video files take longer to upload than photos or text because the file size is so much bigger.

When you are ready to upload your video reviews, keep the following guidelines in mind to help you upload your videos quickly and successfully.

1. File size: Videos must be less than 1 GB.

2. File type: We recommend H.264/MP4 but we also accept the following file types: .avi, .dv, .mov/.qt, .mpeg, .mp4, .3gp, .asf/.wmv, .flv.

3. Internet connection: You must have a strong internet connection in order to upload successfully. If the internet disconnects at any moment during the uploading process, the upload will not be successful.

If you have any questions or are having trouble, don’t hesitate to contact us at
info@hotelconfidential.com
. We will be happy to provide any technical assistance needed.

Hotel Confidential is thrilled to be featured in a blog post by acclaimed travel blogger Megan Claire of Mapping Megan. In an awesome post called Alternative Ways to Make Money While Traveling, Megan lists a number of proven ways to earn money on the road, from teaching English and day-trading to tending bar and acting. Some travelers find ways to use their photography and videography skills and equipment to make money by working on projects for clients or selling stock footage. Hotel Confidential is another way to use video to make some extra cash, but you don’t have to be a professional filmmaker to make a quality hotel video review! And as Megan says, “Chances are you’ll be staying in a hotel or hostel at some point along your trip. Why not get paid to review the hotels you’re already staying at?!”
