      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?)

    • Transport between Arica (Chile) and Tacna (Peru)

      by tezzy Online Now Nov 28, 2013 at 5:23 AM

      Hi all,

      I understand from Lonely Planet that there are FOUR modes of transport between Arica (Chile) and Tacna (Peru); bus, train, taxi and colectivo(shared-taxi).

      What is the cheapest option?

      Taxi to Azapa Geoglpyhs?

      by amyarizona Online Now Oct 26, 2012 at 12:47 PM

      We are arriving by cruise ship and trying to plan a day on our own using taxis rather than taking an organized tour.
      . We wish to visit the Archeological Museum in San Marcos by taxi. Is it also possible to go from there to see the geoglyphs and maybe the handicrafts in Parinacota or are they too far away? ( I am more interested in the geoglyphs than the handicrafts).

      I'm going to land in a week in Arica, I would like to see Lauca National Park and then go to San Pedro De Atacama to see Uyuni desert and\or De Atacama desert (do you think they are different?) what would be the best way to do that? I'm a solo traveler so car is not an option...

      Arica to La Paz

      by thelittlevoice Online Now Aug 14, 2005 at 8:00 PM

      So I've been reading a LP guidebook but it doesn't seem to mention about the bus schedule, it mentions only prices and durations. Does anyone know what time of day the bus leaves from Arica to La Paz? It doesn't have to be an exact time but an approximate one let's say early morning, late afternoon, overnight or something like that is enough.
