Wikivoyage is a great resource, but it didn't have an API. Now it does.

Disclaimer

The is a beta release.

Access Rules

Access is free but currently rate-limited by IP number to 100 requests/day. Contact me at wikisherpa@rezendi.com to get a free API key that will increase that limit to 250 requests/day. If that's insufficient for your needs, let me know and we'll work something out.

Technical Details

All the API endpoints are accessed via HTTP GETs; all responses are in JSON. Click to see examples.
