    • Ferrocarril Tacna-Arica train timetable (Ferrocarril Tacna-Arica calendario)

      Arica Mar 31, 2015 at 5:38 PM

      Hi everyone.

      I plan to take this train from Arica (Chile) to Tacna (Peru).

      Is this train route still in operation? If so, what is the timetable?

      Punta Arenas to Calama same day (or the other way around)

      Chile Apr 4, 2015 at 2:26 PM

      I am planning a trip to Chile in February 2016 that will include a week in Patagonia (TdP) and another one in Atacama.
      I am wondering if it is possible to fly from Punta Arenas to Calama within the same day (with a stop in Santiago) or the other way around from Calama to PA. Depending on feasibility we may decide to start in the North or South.
      Any idea ? 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!

      Greetings, I need to work online all day (9:30-3) in La Serena Chile on Monday March 12. I will be coming in on a cruise ship. Are there any verified free wifi spots you can recommend to use my notebook or an Internet Cafe?

      Is the free wifi still available at the Mall Plaza La Serena?
      How far is the Mall from the cruise port?

    • Has anyone used MoreTour originating in La Serena

      La Serena 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

      La Serena 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
