We’re heading off there fairly soon; big trip coming up in April/May.
Was wondering if anyone had any stories to share, or tips and recommendations for things to see/do/avoid? We have about 5 nights in Santiago (2 at start, 3 at finish) with a 6 night stay on Easter Island, 5-6 nights in or about San Pedro de Atacama and the desert and we plan to enjoy a few other misc. nights swanning about (by bus) between the north and Santiago, places like La Serena possibly. Just over 3 weeks in total to experience a little bit of quality Chile action.
It’s all in aid of a rather big birthday the missus is about to endure (30-10), and she wants to be as far from our ‘real’ life (in the UK) as possible, hence the ‘waking up on that day on Easter Island’ requirement.
Any top tips & traveller’s tales will be very welcome! Cheers.
