Bringing archery equipment to Chile.

I was considering bringing my recurve bow with me to Chile. Has anyone had any experience in bringing a bow to Chile. Are the considered a restricted item? What about arrows? Field points, broadheads?

Re: What is required for CHILE to recognize legal documents?

The Chilean consulates had notarios on staff to officialize documents which originated outside Chile. I believe that it is no longer necessary to have them notarize documents as they are now party to the Hague convention. Your apostille should be all you need. At any rate a phone call to the Chilean...

Smoking meats in Patagonia

I built myself an ugly drum smoker and it has been getting lots of use down here. I have been able to find supplies of alder, apple and cherry wood, but I am curious if anyone has tried native woods (coyhue, lenga or any others) for smoking meats.What meats are you smoking, and what woods are you us...

Re: German sausages in Santiago

I searched most of the cities in the south and never was able to find a german butcher shop, let alone bratwurst. My solution was to purchase a good quality sausage stuffer and make my own. Now once a month or so I purchase a whole "paleta" (pork shoulder) when the carneceria has cerdo. I have them ...

Re: Foreigners without residency, can not leave with Chilean car

Thats a pretty strong policy for a country that cant connect the north and south by road. I guess going from Coyhaique to Punta Arenas is out of the question.

Re: Coyhaique Most Polluted City in the Americas

I dont have any problem with the statistic quoted by WHO, but in all likelyhood the air quality was sampled in the winter. The air quality is horrendous in Coyhaique in the heating season. The cause of the pollution is not automobiles, or coal plants, but the habit of burning leña verde. You cant ev...

Re: The Chile Eclipses Thread

The weather cooperated in Aysen. Clear skies and full eclipse. Fresh homemade italian sausages on the pancho washed down with Carmen Gran Reserva. A truly great day in Patagonia! :D

Re: Paying customs duties at airport

My information is a bit stale --- I paid Chilean customs in 2013. At that time only cash was accepted but there was an ATM available to those who were paying the aduana. The staff were professional and helpful. That trip in 2013 is the only time I have ever had to pay any customs duties. I was asse...
