      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?

      We will be on a cruise that begins in Valparaiso on January 11, 2007. We fly in to Santiago and were wondering if it is better to stay in Santiago one night and tour the city some, then take a transfer tour to Valparaiso the next day to board the ship or would it be better to just get of the plane, tour Santiago and then transfer to Valparaiso and spend the night and get on the ship the next day? We will have had a 9 hour flight that lands in Santiago about 9:00 am. The ship leaves Jan 11 at 5:00 pm.
      Thanks for your help and thoughts

      We are a Belgian retired couple wanting to rent a furnished apartment in Vina del Mar from November 27th 2005 till January 1st 2006, possibly even a month longer. We would like the apartment to have at least one separate bedroom and offer necessary standards of comfort. If possible, with seaview and not too far from shopping and restaurants. Looking at the Vina map, we were thinking about Avenidas Peru or Martin, or is this location too expensive at that time of year? Thank you for any suggestions, tips or offers!

      My husband & I will be cruising out of Valpariso in January 2006, but need to spend one night in Vina del Mar. We hear it's a lovely area, but are very confused as to where we should stay. Also, my husband must have air conditioning and we noticed that most hotels either don't have it at all or just omit it from their listing of amenities. Anyone with hotel information is requested. Price is not necessarily an issue. Thank you.
