Re: Question about a location in Valparaiso

In my experience Artilleria is a neat area (beautiful views, great naval museum), but it is a bit off the tourist track and is not quite as scrubbed down and safe as some of the other areas (e.g., concepcion, bellavista, alegre). In the end, however, it often depends "where" within in a Cerro in Val...

Pl - Thanks for the informative post. Very helpful.

It is walking distance to many places in ...

Re: Questions for Upcoming Trip

Thanks. That was my instinct. Unless someone tells me otherwise, I'll be comparing the rates of eurocar and econorent (through their direct websites) to book the vehicle. Thanks for all of the help. The only question that no one has mentioned is whether there is a fresh foods market (e.g., a traditi...

Re: Questions for Upcoming Trip

A bit late on the Airline ticket. We found a well priced LAN fare for this trip many months ago, prior to pin pointing our points of travel within country. For what its worth, round trip from Miami (one stop in Peru) for about 850/pp. I appreciate the advice, and will likely book directly through th...

Re: Questions for Upcoming Trip

Great advice and heads up. I'll make sure that I go through the Chilean site to complete the purchase.

Any advice from anyone regarding the Rental Car companies at ZCO and child car seat issue I referenced in the OP? Thanks - L

Re: Questions for Upcoming Trip

I appreciate the response. I have traveled by air quite frequently (both inside and outside of Chile), I am just concerned that booking via the LAN site in advance for intra-country flights could result in a missing or flawed reservation.

Questions for Upcoming Trip

A few questions I've run into for an upcoming trip to Villarrica in October: 1. We'll be flying into Temuco from Santiago. We'll arrive in Santiago very early one morning, then hoping to purchase plane tickets (at SCL) for a plane leaving the same day to Temuco (ZCO) for three adults and a child. Wo...
