      Best side of the Andes

      Chile Mar 1, 2015 at 12:11 PM

      I am planning a trip by car in October-November in Argentina and Chile, and I am thinking of arriving to Cueva de las Manos from Peninsula Valdez and then drive north to Atacama, passing by Barilloche et Mendoza on the Argenitina side and Puerto Montt and Santiago on the Chilean side.
      The doubt is whether it is nicer to drive between Cueva de las manis and Barilloche on the Argentinean side and then cross in to Chile, or to cross into Chile south and then enter Barilloche area and tour it.

      Then I have the same doubt, i.e. is there anything worth seeing between Barilloche and Mendoza, or is it better to go back to Chile and drive to Santiago and then go to Mendoza from there.

      I am quite experienced in driving in Argentina, having already driven more than 10.000km there in the north and extreme south, and given the cost of car drop-off, I am not interested in using planes or other means of transport, except maybe to cross the lakes (but is it possible to take the car across to Chile that way or is it only for pedestrians?)

    • 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.

      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
