      Lauca - how to get around?

      Putre Jul 1, 2014 at 2:00 AM


      I am going to visit Arica and from there I am planning to go to Putre and Lauca National Park. I would like to ask for recommendation as to how to move around the park, I understand that it covers quite a decent area (too large to see it all on foot in one day) and that is why I am wondering whether to a). rent a car and move around on my own, b). take an organized tour from Arica to Lauca, c). try to wait and see whether I can get some organized tour from the hotel in Putre where I will be staying. Can I ask anyone who has already been there to recommend what is the best option? I should add that I will be a solo traveller and that makes a thing a little bit more complicated....

      Hi all,

      I understand from Lonely Planet that there are FOUR modes of transport between Arica (Chile) and Tacna (Peru); bus, train, taxi and colectivo(shared-taxi).

      What is the cheapest option?

      Taxi to Azapa Geoglpyhs?

      Arica Oct 26, 2012 at 12:47 PM

      We are arriving by cruise ship and trying to plan a day on our own using taxis rather than taking an organized tour.
      . We wish to visit the Archeological Museum in San Marcos by taxi. Is it also possible to go from there to see the geoglyphs and maybe the handicrafts in Parinacota or are they too far away? ( I am more interested in the geoglyphs than the handicrafts).

    • Buying a car a good idea???

      Iquique Nov 2, 2007 at 9:37 AM

      Hi all!
      My boyfriend and i were thinking of buying a cheap car to drive thru Chile, Argentina and possibly further north in Sth America. We have a few questions...
      Will the expense and risk of forking out cash for a car be worth it? How expensive is petrol? Tolls? Parking?
      Can you take a car across borders? What customs procedure are involved?
      Would we be able to sell the car after we finish our trip, most likely in Argentina?
      Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated, especially about Sth Am red tape!!
      Muchas gracias por su words of wisdom (Love spanglish!)

      Arica to La Paz

      Arica Aug 14, 2005 at 8:00 PM

      So I've been reading a LP guidebook but it doesn't seem to mention about the bus schedule, it mentions only prices and durations. Does anyone know what time of day the bus leaves from Arica to La Paz? It doesn't have to be an exact time but an approximate one let's say early morning, late afternoon, overnight or something like that is enough.
