I'm planing my trip to Chile on October. Thirst part I will spend in a north chile (San Pedro de Atacama-La Serena area) and then I thought to go to Puerto Natales and spend there some time. When travelling, I mostly prefer to go to places, stay there for a few days or more and explore the area. Without long tracks. I thought to take 1-2 one day trips.
So, here is a few things I want to ask.
1. what is the best way to go from La Serena to Puerto Natales?
- If by flight, can I buy tickets…
My friend and I are planning on hiking the W in Torres del Paine. Fantastico Sur offers a pre-paid package which includes accomodation in refugios and transportation to/from the park but it's far more expensive than booking the refugios independently. I've seen that refugios are easy to book online but what about transport to and from the park? Is there a way to book the buses in advance? And what about the ferry? And if not, how much in advance does it book out? It would suck to have booked all…
I've read a lot that to avoid spending too much on buying food in Easter Island, it'll be best to do some shopping first in Santiago and take it onto the island. However, I'm actually flying from Tahiti. Has anyone tried bringing food in from French Polynesia and if so, what are the items that will be confiscated on arrival?
Can I bring in fresh meat, canned food, eggs, milk, fruits, bread, jam?
Hi peeps from chile.!!! I am planning a Ski season in chile, and I am wondering if anyone of you's has information where to look for job ( web sites , companies). I have several years of customer service and hospitality. I just finished my second season in Hirafu Niseko Japan and I have to live cuz of visa reasons. I will really appreciated if someone has any info. Thanks Mate"s !!!!!
I wanted to let people know that I have just bought SP Atacama to Salta bus tickets, semi carma, Seats 12 and 13, on Andesmar's online for travel on Sunday 20 November 2016, which is way in advance of 30 days.
We are taking the 07h45 train from Santiago to Chillan (we want to take one train journey in Chile), then onwards to either Los Angeles or to Temuco. The train is scheduled to arrive in Chillan at 12h40 and the buses depart Chillan at 2pm and 4pm taking 1h30 or 3hrs to Los Angeles or to Temuco respectively (it is the same bus on Tur bus)..
If we spend 3 hours in Chillan, then we go to Los Angeles, if we stop briefly, an hour in Chillan, we can go on to Temuco. Should we have a leisurely lunch…
We will be arriving on Easter Island in December for 3 days, after we continue to Santiago, Chile. If we apply for our tourist visa on arrival do they require proof of a return flight leaving from Chile? We are planning on traveling overland and we haven't booked any flights after Chile. Is this gonna be an issue? Or would a busticket to Peru or Argentina be enough?
How would it work with other countries in South America entering them by land rather than flying in?
My girlfriend and I will be traveling to Chile from 10/3/16-10/11/16. We'll be arriving very early in Santiago on 10/4 (around 4am). We'd like to do some hiking in Patagonia. I understand that we need to choose either Northern or Southern Patagonia and that we will need to fly there shortly after we arrive on 10/4.
From there though, I'm pretty overwhelmed logistically. It seems like southern patagonia is less likely to be a feasible trip just because of the additional time to get…
I am landing at Santiago the 14/09/2016 for 6 months
I am looking for a car where I can sleep in with a 2nd person.
I can't pay more than 4000€
Do you have some clue ?
Hey, I finally have a new Notebook and can produce content again. Hopefully you don't mind if I share my latest video with you guys!
It’s from April 2015, and I was making my way from the rainy Fjords in Patagonia to the Island of Chiloé, tracking down the erupting Volcano Calbuco and finally walking and hitch hiking into ash-covered Argentina. And all of that in just 12 minutes, in which you will also witness my transition from ridiculously long to very short hair :)
