    • Safety for Solo Female Traveler

      Easter Island 20 hours ago

      If this has already been addressed on another forum that I haven't read yet, I apologize. I will be traveling to Easter Island the last week of May 2015. I have a tour guide for two full days and one half day, but I would like to explore the island alone on the fourth day and in the evening. Is this safe to do for a solo female traveler? Thanks!

      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!

      by kikekike Online Now Oct 22, 2007 at 2:45 PM

      I am visiting chiloe from 27/10 to 31/10
      I have found difficult to find where to rent a car in the island, preferably in Ancud. Any help? Alternatively, is it feasible to move around by public transport?

    • Isla Chiloe

      by Chloe1984 Online Now May 11, 2007 at 4:59 AM

      My friend and I are spending one month in Argentina and Chile. The idea of visiting this island appeals to us, but is it worth the trip? How long does it take to get there from the Chilean coast, and how much would it cost us? (We would do it the cheapest way possible!) We could really only afford to spend one day there. Please advise!! :-)

    • Visit to Chiloe

      by dantarta Online Now Feb 12, 2006 at 7:59 PM

      I will have 2 days on Chiloe and want to visit Castro, Dalcahue, Chonchi and National Park Chiloe. May be also Ancud (if enough time, not sure what is better).
      We will start from Puerto Montt around 10am after landing, and I plan to be in Puerto Varas next night. What is the best way to do it? Buy tour or rent car?
      If yes, which operators/car agencies are the best. Should we take 4WD to visit park or regular car is ok? Where is the best place to spend night in Castro (local and cheap)?
      Any other tips?

      Thanks,
      Dan

      Quellon>>>Chaiten Ferry

      by travelin-light Online Now Jul 22, 2005 at 2:19 PM

      Does anyone know the schedule for the ferry from Quellon to Chaiten? I would really like to make the crossing with my truck, as it would save quite a bit of miles, probably not time, on my way to Esquel, AR. Thanks in advance!
