I will be purchasing quite a bit of merchandise in a well-known store in Santiago, Chile. I want to save money, so do I pay:
1. With my credit card in Chilean pesos?
2. With my credit card in US dollars?
3. With US cash?
4. With Chilean pesos (cash) withdrawn from a Santiago ATM?
My friend and I are planning a trip in January to Patagonia--unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding a guidebook that focuses on this region and does it well. The initial plan (not yet booked) is to start in Punta Arenas, but is that the best idea? I would be coming from Ushuaia (following an Antarctic cruise) and my friend would be coming from the US, so she's able to fly anywhere. If we do start in Punta Arenas, I'll probably take the bus there from Ushuaia, but maybe we should start somewhere in Argentina?
We are interested in scenery, mild hiking (i.e. not climbing), and wildlife. To be honest I'm not particularly educated about what there is to do down there, how best to organize logistics, possibilities of including both countries in a reasonable time frame, etc. Any assistance is welcome!
