    Arica Things to Do

    Hey guys,I must say that I had a really great time at the Academia de Artes y Lenguas where they have Spanish courses... It wasn't too expensive and the classes were one-to-one. The teachers are experienced and I learnt a lot in my time there. I would highly recommend it!!I also had a breath-taking mini-trek up the famous Morro; there is a path at...

  • Seafood yes, Spectacular No!

    Arica Restaurants

    We had heard about this so called fancy seafood restaurant in a Lonely Planet guidebook and since we were craving some good seafood after earlier inland travels throughout South America we figured this would be a good bet. It turns out that it was pretty good....but not spectacular. Our plates were not that impressive, but in all fairness is was...

    Putre Off The Beaten Path

    Being the driest desert in the world has brought the Atacama Desert a unique notoriety. Because of the lack of water vapor in the air, infrequent towns, and lack of radio and microwave interference the Atacama has become the world hotbed for many telescopes. Water vapor has a significant affect on the ability to detect distant objects so the lack...

  • Stay In Putre rather than Arica

    Putre Things to Do

    Putre's remoteness is like nothing I have seen in North America. The town is very small and accommodations are very modest in town. Some of them do not have hot water. If you are adventuresome and don't mind basic accommodations, based on mytalking to others, I would recommend making the trip to Lauca National Park in two days. First give your body...

    Lauca Warnings and Dangers

    The bus ride from 0 to 4600m and back in just one day will probably make you quite dizzy if you are a flat country rat like me. Ask if the driver or tourguide has some coca leaves and cactus ash. At least I believe it really helped me. Or just the power of imagination??? Also we had some mate tea on the way. It would be ashame to fall asleep during...

  • Lago Chungara

    Lauca Things to Do

    This is the "final destination" of most day trips from Arica and definitely the absolute highlight. Being on 4.600m the few steps from the bus to the shore may take some time, just everything leaves you breathless up here.... You will see vicunas, flamingos and many other birds. You will hear nothing. Enjoy the silence and try to believe the view...

  • Thin air tree methusalems

    Lauca Favorites

    Check out the last trees on the way up. These are real methusalems, hundreds of years old and quite unique and beautiful in my opinion. They are usually standing alone and as I can't stand someone standing alone all day in such a lonely part of the world I just had to go and say Hi to it. But tree huggers careful - this one has sharp needles!I...

    The cruising to this place is a full day trip, over a some hard difficult track. You must do it with local guides and at less two in good conditions 4wd machines and experienced drivers.
