    • Cruise to Easter Island in April next year

      Easter Island 3 hours ago

      Planning on arriving mid April for two days then cruising on to Lima. What should we expect for weather both there and the following cruise to Peru? I know there are no guarantees. Just wondering if it will normally be warm enough to enjoy both parts if that journey, particularly the next 4 days at sea! Thanks for your help.

      what to do travelling with a 2 year old

      Concepción Apr 3, 2014 at 8:28 AM

      Hi, I just booked a trip to Concepcion (friday afternoon to sunday afternoon) and i'm travelling with wife and 2 year old son. i've seen that there is a big park with waterfalls within the city, the famous ship Huascar and the university area to visit.
      would you recommend any other place in the city or around that would be worth a visit (with a 2 year old)?
      i can see that the best recommendation to eat is in the marlet or around it.
      any bad areas in concepcion to avoid? any nice areas to book the hotel?
      Thanks!

    • Buses from Salta to San Pedro

      San Pedro de Atacama Apr 11, 2014 at 9:06 PM

      Are there any comfortable air conditioned buses with leg room travelling from Salta to San Pedro? I know there is 1 restroom on the bus, but do they make frequent stops to stretch your legs and stop for a bite to eat and use their restrooms? It looks like it take 12- 14 hours? How much do the buses cost and which one would you recommend? Thanks.

    • Trekking the W route in late April

      Torres del Paine Apr 3, 2014 at 8:40 AM

      Hi,
      I am a solo traveller looking to trek the W route from 24-28th April and wanted to ask if it is best to book refugios in advance? Many of them seem to have finished for the season (or floes on the 30April) and it's hard to see what I will need to book. Do you think it is possible to book everything in Puerto Natales? Or is it better to book some in advance and risk only a few? I am happy to camp if that is the only option but would prefer a basic bed if possible.

      Also this is at the beginning of a three moth trip and I will have a very large travel ruck sack. Is there somewhere where you can store bags before entering the park?

      Help and tips much appreciated especially from anyone who has done this trip solo.
      Thanks! Vicky

    • Self-Drive to Uyuni?

      San Pedro de Atacama Mar 30, 2014 at 8:31 AM

      Hi, my friend and I will be in San Pedro de Atacama for only four days. We would like to make a trip to the Salar de Uyuni and to stay in the Palacio de Sal, but we don't have time to take the usual 3 day tour. We will have a rental car while in Atacama. Is it possible for us to drive ourselves to the Salar de Uyuni from San Pedro or Calama? (Assuming we can sort out the legal details with the rental company.) Meaning can the drive be reasonably done in one day and back the next day? Are the roads relatively passable? If we don't have a satellite phone, are we likely to die a slow and painful death?

      Is the free wifi still available at the Mall Plaza La Serena?

    • Has anyone used MoreTour originating in La Serena

      by fairchaffee Online Now Aug 22, 2011 at 1:17 PM

      We have booked a tour of Elqui Valley with an agency called MoreTour. I cannot read most of their website as it is in Spanish. I have been dealing with the general manager Cristián Clavero Salazar
      General manager
      More Tour
      He is a professional but with very broken English. I have gathered 9 persons to go on this tour. Has anyone has experience with his tours or this company in general. I am worried about the size of his tour buses for this many people. Has anyone been on this tour?

    • Suggestions on Chile

      by Lou_ Online Now Dec 1, 2005 at 10:12 AM

      Hello

      I have 5 days in Chile to spend chilling out in march 2006. Looking at going up to La Serena for a few days and visiting Vina and Valpo.

      I am quite keen to hire a car and take things as they come. Would this be feasible in March to get accommodation? Bearing in mind my spanish is very very basic....

      Any help would be appreciated

      Cheers
