          We loved this hostel!- the staff are lovely and so helpful. We wanted a dorm but there was no space so we were given a private for the same price as a dorm! The beds are comfy and our room even had a TV with satellite. There's a decent kitchen for guests to use and an open communal space. The best thing about this hostel though is the fantastic complimentary breakfast... Choice of scrambled egg or cereal with yogurt, toast, a cake, juice and an amazing coffee! Just perfect compared to the usual stale bread!

          Escaping the floods

          A travel blog entry by eeyore82 on Mar 27, 2015

          Now all I wanted was to get out of this mudhole San Pedro. This venture was much more complicated as I thought - as the state of emergency was still ongoing and the streets to and from San Pedro were partially blocked by the floods. Finally I managed to find a bus for the next day, together with Bujar who I met in the hostel we bought a ticket to …

          Hotel Diego de Almagro - too good to leave


          We had to push ourselves to leave this lovely hotel in which everything was working. It was so luxurious, even the pile in the carpet was deep and new.

          Our aim was to travel about 320 kilometers to cross into Bolivia this day, and rest for the night in Curahuara, just 200 kilometers short of La Paz, which we should cove...

          Moved onto the bext beach town Arica near the border of Peru. Great little place where I could of spent alot more time. Surf beaches along a deserted coast. A small town with all the shopping you need. Again, didnt really do much. Looked around town and layed on the beach. Climbed a cliff overlooking the beaches and the city.

          Staying true to our travel style leaving Cusco we arrived at the bus station and after searching a few buses one was leaving right then and therefore allowed us to bargain down the price. We jumped on and it was one of the dirtiest and oldest buses, but we could open the window which was lovely. The scenery was breath taking, especially the suns...

          30+ Hour Bus Ride...

          So after a grueling 30 plus hours bus ride from Valparaiso, I arrived in Arica, Chile late last night. It was supposed to be a quick pitstop before crossing over to Bolivia, but couldn´t stand the thought of getting onto another bus for 7 hrs to go to La Paz. I decided to stay another night and roam around Arica for a day or so.

          passing the time in Arica

          I was supposed to go on a boat tour from Arica today but the water was too rough and it was cancelled. No penguins for me. So sad. So Í´ve had to find other ways to entertain myself. The first diversion of the day was a military parade, I think to honor the Battle of Concepción during the war of the Pacific, but please correct me if I´m wrong. I...

          tailgaiting at the border

          My bus arrive at Tacna at 3:30am, from which I immediately followed a colectivo driver to his 1990´s Ford to take me across the border to Arica, Chile. His car was in a lot full of big old American cars unlike any taxis or colectivos I´ve seen yet. The guidebook said that all these border running colectivos were like this but I didn´t believe it...
