    • hiking in Torres del Paine and luggage

      Torres del Paine Jul 12, 2015 at 11:15 AM

      Hello, I was wondering what you would recommend in terms of luggage at Torres del Paine. I planned a trip from Central Chile to the South and I am using a rental car most of the time, which also makes it easy to store my stuff. At Torres del Paine I wanted to do the 3-4 day hiking circuit. Is there a way to store my duffel bag since I won't have my rental car there (and then just take a small backpack with me)? Or would I need to carry all my belonging while doing this?
      Thank you!

      2) Do I have to purchase a national park ticket (not certain if this is the correct name for it) at the airport in order to enter the parks?

      3) Is it still possible to get an Easter Island passport stamp?

      4) And my final questions: Do most of the restaurants prefer Chilean pesos rather than American dollars? And how

      much should I budget approximately for lunch and dinner each day?

      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!

    • What must-see hiking is well marked and good for a self-guided trip

      Torres del Paine Apr 12, 2015 at 5:14 PM

      We are visiting Torres Del Paine in late December 2015 - we are a family of three all nature lovers, hikers and campers.
      My husband cannot carry a backpack right now, so we are basing ourselves from Las Torres Hotel and want to hike and see the most beautiful spots in the area.

      I think we need a car since we are not buying all-inclusive, and we need some local input about how far hiking trails are and how well marked they are. We can do some excursions with the hotel, but we don't want to be on the schedule and pay all the extra. We have travelled to many and stayed in many US National parks - this is our first trip to Patagonia.

      We'd love feedback from anyone who has travelled this way. Ideally we would do the W circuit, but we want to sleep inside on a bed this trip because we are travelling to far to get there (we live in USA - CAlifornia).

      THanks for any ideas about what we should see and what is easy to see on your own vs what might be worth doing with a guide. Also reality check on car for getting around and gas situation.

      THank you!

      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?)

The next day we are heading north to El Chalten to go camping and hiking for 3 days. This is why I'm looking for just a day trip on these days. Any recommendations on certain tours or where I can find these day trips available? Should I book them now or wait until I get to my hotel?

      Chile Jan 15, 2015 at 4:56 PM

      I saw that a hotel in San Pedro de Atacama indicating that if the hotel room is paid with a credit card, it will be charged at the local Calama exchange rate. Should we carry lots of CLP and settle hotels with cash? Is there any disadvantage in using US issued credit card in Chile (other than your card may charge fx fees - my card doesn't so this isn't an issue). Thanks!
