Roberto, the owner, makes this hostel. We arrived very late on a Sunday night, and were immediately welcomed with a can of beer. A nice touch. Relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, great breakfast available all morning and generally clean. We had an en-suite room with cable TV, which was good, apart from the lock was broken so we had to just use a locker, but it felt quite safe anyway. The hostel is located 3km out of town but it was really easy to take a collectivo to and from city centre. Thank you, Roberto, for a great stay!

As the 5ive song goes, we were were moving on up. Our next destination, would be our final one in Chile, sad times. The town of Arica was the closest to the border, and where we could get transport easily to Peru.

We said goodbye to the friendly dog at the hostal in Iquique and made our way to the bus terminal. Our bus was leaving at 8.35 …

It was carrying the truck trays they use in the ...

... It was also interesting to see how much they respected life and would give honour to the dead, even babies, foetus' and embryos. On finishing the museum we realised that we were in the middle of no where, a 20 minute drive from town and there were no collectivos to be seen. We walked to the main road, but the ones we saw were all full or going in the wrong direction. It looked like a long wait in the searing heat but seconds after a quick prayer one came round the corner with ...

... delicious poached salmon, covered in roasted cherry tomatoes, artichokes and wonderfully juicy capers. In fact, I think that the last time we enjoyed a meal so much must have been the Michelin Starred ‘Sketch’ in London … except that this meal cost us a fifth of that one! When we looked up the restaurant on Tripadvisor later that day, we found it was rated as one of the best restaurants in Arica. All the reviews were in Spanish, so we knew that this was a ...

Adios Peru, Hola Chile!

... views of the city and ocean. The views continued on top where you could watch the surfers tackling one tube wave after another to your left or watch the continuous loading and unloading of the container ships in port on your right. With not much to do in Arica I was thankful for the outside common area at the hostel and was sitting there in the early afternoon when the owner came out and went into the corner and started talking to something in a box with a ...
