      General Questions

      Easter Island May 6, 2015 at 8:11 PM

      1) I would like to know if I have to pick up my luggage (one piece) once I arrive in Santiago, Chile and recheck my luggage for the flight to Easter Island? (I am arriving from the U.S.)

      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?

      Thank you in advance for any answers you can provide!

      Safety for Solo Female Traveler

      Easter Island May 4, 2015 at 7:23 AM

      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!

    • 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.
