      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?

    • Lake Crossing

      by janetlee Online Now May 8, 2010 at 6:47 PM

      I read from other VT members about lake crossing from Puerto Varas to Bariloche. It seems that it is worthwhile to take that trip. We will be going to the Lake District of Chile in next April. Will there be lake crossing? Will be boat/cruise service be closed during that time of the year?

      Fishing in Puerto Varas

      by reynes Online Now Jan 9, 2008 at 1:31 PM

      Can anyone give some info about fly fishing in the Puerto Varas area. Is it possible to do it without a guide? Perhaps just rent a car and drive to the rivers? Or can someone recommend an inexpensive fishing guide. We really only need to be taken to the fishing location and picked up at the end of the day..

      Thanks!

    • Lake Region, Torres Del Paine

      by zombies Online Now Mar 11, 2005 at 12:13 PM

      Can someone please suggest the best itinerary based from Puerto Montt (I'll be flying into Puerto Montt from Santiago) and involving any combination of day
      trips (boat, car, bus) to puerto varas, osorno,
      petrohue, chiloe, puella through the lagos (I can't go to Bariloche,
      because I don't have an argentine visa; unless I can get an argentine visa at
      the border).

      I have around 3-4 days to spend around Puerto Montt, after which I
      want to fly to Punta Arenas (don't want to risk taking the Navimag,
      because it looks like the weather is dicy) and visit the Torres Del
      Paine for another 4-5 days (Is it possible to include trips to the bernardo and
      serrano, and the isla magalleno?). I'll be flying back to Santiago
      from Punta Arenas. I can rent a car or so, can spend around3000 for 2 people excluding flights (the lesser the better :)

      Thanks very much for your help.

      Cheers 'n Regards,
      Ganesh.
