Hi! I m going to San Pedro de Atacama for a couple of days in the end of july (26t..27th..)I would like to know if I should book in advance or not...it s first time in South america..so I don t know..as in Asia there s no problem..and I m a bit afraid as the town seems not to be very big, not to have a place to sleep..(with my budget).. and in the street I think is gonna be quite cold..or maybe there are families who can rent room in case of problem...
Dear Fellow Travelers
we , 4 persons, Geeks, plan to visit North Chile this September. I noticed trying to book a ticket (domestic flight from Santiago to Calama) with Skyairlines that there are two prices, if I write that residence is Chile then I get the cheap price, if i write that my home is in another country like Spain or Italy or any other country in Europe then I get the expensive rate, twice or more. Through Skyscanner i have access to Skyairlines by getting the cheap price.
I do not…
I may be travelling to Chile this August and I understand it's going to be cold then. I am wondering about the cost of winter clothing there. I am from a tropical country so I never have to wear them and sweaters and so here are a bit expensive. Does anyone know the cost of such clothing in Chile? Want to know if it's more expensive or cheaper over there so I will know where to buy.
I will be accompanying my father (aged 79 years) visiting Santiago. Can you recommend a good hotel - no need for 4 -5 star luxury.
I've read that breakfast is Coffee & croissant??? Is that the usual meal in a hotel???
THANKS for any suggestions
I GOT ROBBED IN SANTIAGO A COUPLE MONTHS AGO! This was in broad daylight, in Parque Forestal, which is a very nice park and actually one of the prettiest places in Santiago, and there were plenty of people around. The police and the people at the U.S. embassy weren't at all surprised when I told them about it--they had heard the same story many times.
Here's how it happened: I was walking through this park taking pictures (so, yes, they were attracted to my camera, an SLR); actually I saw them…
Of a sudden I've just found out that I'll be in Chile for 3 weeks in July/August, and I really have no clue about how I should spend that time.
I will be in Santiago, and I have friends I need to visit in Valparaiso. I suspect, then, that I'd be willing to travel anywhere from Santiago in the north to Chiloe down south. I know it's a general question, but can anyone give some ideas on any cities/rural areas that would be great to visit during my 3 weeks? I'm not into skiing or national…
My name is Elena. I am from Russia. I am going to Chile in the end of October for three weeks.
Now I am planning my trip from Santiago to South Patagonia. If everyone have any advises to share or wants to join me in Chile please feel free to message me.
I'm trying to plan a trip to South America in Jan/ Feb, and I definitely want to go to Patagonia (love hiking and climbing etc). I'll be going by myself (hoping to meet people along the way) and I really want to hike. I'm a little apprehensive about hiking alone (injuries/ lost etc). I've looked at booking tours in advance but that presents two problems 1) price and 2) having to be there at a particular day which I might not be. Will there be hostels/ tour companies in Puerto Natales that…
Do not stay at Mercure Santiago Central. They will not tell you, but they have workmen renovating the 14th floor, and perhaps other floors. The noise was obvious upon check in, they apologized telling me it is coming from the Medical Centre next door and that they would stop it. I have been here for 3 days, prepaid unfortunately for me. They keep apologizing and saying it is going to stop. It goes on well into the night until around 10pm at least. I have had 3 changes of room and it has…
