      Best side of the Andes

      Chile Mar 1, 2015 at 12:11 PM

      I am planning a trip by car in October-November in Argentina and Chile, and I am thinking of arriving to Cueva de las Manos from Peninsula Valdez and then drive north to Atacama, passing by Barilloche et Mendoza on the Argenitina side and Puerto Montt and Santiago on the Chilean side.
      The doubt is whether it is nicer to drive between Cueva de las manis and Barilloche on the Argentinean side and then cross in to Chile, or to cross into Chile south and then enter Barilloche area and tour it.

      Then I have the same doubt, i.e. is there anything worth seeing between Barilloche and Mendoza, or is it better to go back to Chile and drive to Santiago and then go to Mendoza from there.

      I am quite experienced in driving in Argentina, having already driven more than 10.000km there in the north and extreme south, and given the cost of car drop-off, I am not interested in using planes or other means of transport, except maybe to cross the lakes (but is it possible to take the car across to Chile that way or is it only for pedestrians?)

      La Serena Feb 4, 2012 at 8:53 PM

      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?
      I will need to walk or take a cab so an address would be helpful please.
      Is the free wifi still available at the Mall Plaza La Serena?
      How far is the Mall from the cruise port?
      Thank you very much in advance.

    • 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?

    • What can you do for one day in Coquimbo?

      Our Cruise ship is spending the day in Coquimbo. There are 6 of us in our 60's so we are not particularly athletic but we are somewhat adventursome or at least we like to think we are. We want to do something wonderful, unique, interesting, fun, and memorable. Can anyone suggest how we might spend our day? Thanks for any suggestions. Carolyn

      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
