      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?

    • 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

      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?

      Our Princess cruise ship docks at Valparaiso on 7 January 2012. Is there a pier where large cruise ships usually dock? Our hotel is a 5-minute walk from the Puerto Metro Station. I can see on a Google map that there is a ship docked not far from the Puerto. Is it feasible to walk from the dock to our hotel pulling our luggage? (We did this in Venice, Italy 2 years ago with no problem.)

      Hello-I checked forum and couldn't quite find answer. Am planning itinerary to Chile (lvg in a wk).

      I know that there are 2 bus companies that go between Valparaiso & Santiago, and I understand they leave earl enough in the morning...but want to make sure. I have a 9am flight (within Chile) and will be in Valparaiso (or Vina) the night before. (1) Will either bus company get me to Santiago in time for my 9am flight (taking into consideration taxi from bus terminal in Santiago to airport); (2) or is there another fairly economical option that doesn't involve even more transfers. I'm willing to pay a bit more than bus fare to make sure to get to airport on time, but don't really want private taxi option.

      Thank you!

      We are looking, without success at finding ground transportation from Valparaiso (cruise terminal) to Mendoza. So far, neither Chileabout not Viator offer this route. A few other companies have not responded at all, so I guess that's a "no." Being that we'll have quite a bit of luggage, just having come off a cruise, we're trying to avoid taking transportation to Santiago, and then finding a different resource to continue to Mendoza.

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

We will have just come from a cruise with luggage and we do not want to take a bus. The cruise line only provides a bus transfer to the Santiago airport.
