      Night walk

      Santiago Feb 5, 2016 at 5:05 AM

      Hallo. Pls can you tell me some safe places where one can have a night walk, just to see buildings or plazas lighten and take some photos or even stroll aimless? Places not too noisy with clubs etc. but with some spots to have a beer perhaps. Thank you.

    • W trek in early April

      Torres del Paine Jan 31, 2016 at 6:16 PM

      I’m planning to do W trek for 5 days by myself in the first week of April. It seems very expensive to join the travel agency even without a guide. Is it not safe to do trekking alone in April? I am a female and have had some hiking experience but not expert. Any comment would be appreciated.

    • Where to stay? Puerto Natales or inside Torres Del Paine National Park

      Chile Jan 21, 2016 at 3:06 PM

      Hi Everyone,

      We will be in arriving in Punta Arenas at 11:35pm coming from Santiago and staying for four days before going to El Calafate.

      We are looking for some advice about whether to stay in Puerto Natales or inside TDP National Park.

      Whilst in Patagonia we would like do:

      A Full day trek in TDP
      Take a boat cruise to Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers or anywhere else you would recommend
      Kayaking trip
      Horse Riding

      Do you think we should stay in Puerto Natales or inside the park?

      Also what is the best way to get to Puerto Natales and TDP from Punta Arenas? Can we travel late at night or should we stay a night in Punta Arenas and travel in the morning?

      All help is appreciated!

      Best hot springs in Chile?

      Chile Jan 17, 2016 at 3:06 PM

      Hello everyone!

      I'm looking for hot springs to visit on our car trip from Santiago to Puerto Montt. Anywhere you can soak in hot mineral water for a couple of hours. Places like Termas de Colina would be really great: open-air, great views, and not a yuppie spa. Completely wild would be ideal but we don't mind paying for the privilege either.

      Thanks a lot in advance!

      car rental fares

      Easter Island Yesterday

      Hallo my friends. The Insular car rental company gives me the total amount of money according to the days of renting, but after that refers also to a "monto a reservar" and gives a smaller amount of money. Do you have any idea of what exactly could this amount be?

      renting a car

      Santiago Feb 5, 2016 at 7:43 AM

      After having seen most of the highlights in the typical centre of the city fro 2 days, do you think it would b?e a good idea to rent a car for the third and fourth day? One of them we want to travel to Valparaiso and if we finish early from there we can use the car to drive anywhere else before ending in Santiago and on the other day we can reach further interestin spots of the city, which could be reached by metro but a car would also give more freedom. Do you think its useless?

      Wine tasting in Chile?

      Santiago Jan 17, 2016 at 2:39 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!

      Do you know where are the best places to go to for wine tasting in Chile please?

      I have googled around and all I could find are guided group tours crammed into a very short time.

      We would rather prefer a simple opportunity to sample, unhurried and unhassled, a few wines of our choice, even better with some nicely paired cheese, and maybe buy a couple of bottles afterwards.

      Are there places like that between Santiago and Puerto Montt?

      Thanks a lot in advance!

      I'm gonna take the Bus Norte bus to Valparaiso from "Puerto Varas Trebol" in January. Is that the main/only bus terminal in Puerto Varas, on San Bernardo/Walker Martinez street? I'm not sure what "trebol" means...

    • 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.
