It is recommended to bring the family book if you have it. However, if children do not travel with you, you may have to make an authorization official.
There is no mandatory vaccine in all of Latin America. However, if you are from a country where yellow fever is endemic and visits any of these countries, you may be asked to have that vaccine. In any case, we always recommend consulting the Embassy of the country in case something has changed regarding the obligatory nature of vaccines.

However, you can find yourself in some countries like Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Haiti that have more languages that correspond to the indigenous ethnic groups in the area. You should keep in mind that what one word means in your country does not necessarily mean the same in another.
