      Atacama with a 2-year-old toddler

      San Pedro de Atacama Apr 15, 2015 at 3:27 PM

      Does anyone who's been there strongly discourages bringing a 22-months-old toddler to San Pedro de Atacama? Apart from some full day tours and the early morning starter Tatio Geysers, are there any other must-see attraction we might miss?

      Does anybody have a recommendation of family-friendly, intermediate / boutique, not too expensive hotel in San Pedro?

      Any comments comparing taking a tour / self-driving with a rental car? Are the attractions accessible at all with a regular car?

      Any comments and tips will be highly appreciated. Gracias!

    • Fly to Antofagasta direct from Peru instead of Santiago?

      by phrased Online Now Jul 9, 2011 at 3:56 PM

      I am checking out flights to Antofagasta. I am US citizen, in past I have flown from:
      Houston USA, Continental air to Panama City
      Panama City, Copa Airlines to Santiago
      Santiago, SkyAir or LANair to Antofagasta

      This flight is good except I had to buy the domestic Chile flight separately.

      Now I am checking flight that is purchased as one set from multiple airlines:
      Houston USA, Continental air to San Jose Costa Rica
      San Jose, LACSA to Lima Peru
      Lima, TRANS AMERICAN AIRLINES - TACA PERU to Antofagasta

      I am surprised they have international flight directly to Antofagasta as it such a small airport. Is Chile immigration located in Antofagasta or do they have remote immigration office in Lima? (as odd as that sounds I have seen this type of remote immigration before)

      Anyone have experience with this proposed flight plan, please let me know if you had good/bad experiences. Perhaps also a suggestion on amount of time required at each stop in case Lima or San Jose are troublesome places to connect.

      Thanks,
      Jack

      Half a day in Antofagasta, worth it?

      by B3av Online Now Feb 26, 2006 at 8:10 AM

      Hi people,

      On the 5th of April I'm planning on flying from Santiago to Calama and then onto San Pedro.

      Is it worth catching an early flight to Antofagasta, maybe go have a picnic at La Portada, and then catch an early evening flight to Calama. Or would I be better off flying direct to Calama?

      Thanks in advance,

      Steve.

    • Phosphate Mines - Fossils

      Hi,

      I am an amateur paleontologist and I would like to visit the phosphate mines in the Atacama Desert. Can anyone provide any information about them? I collect fossils, especially marine fossils and I know the phosphate mines are a prime site for these.

      Thanks,

      Randy
