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 …

... made into an enormous El Candelabro into the hillside and really can only be recognised from the sea. It looked to me like a cactus with flower shapes going down each branch and then all 3 branches joining into a main stem. We then continued to the islands which are 11 miles from Paracas and almost as soon as we arrived there the excitement was contagious. As well as the dramatic scenery of volcanic caves, stooks, bridges, lagoons ...

... pad with great effort and scrutiny, unlike the others who handed us the pad for us to do it ourselves. A little later he came back round to ask for the passports of foreigners and ID cards of the Chileans. John was almost asleep and oblivious to this and Rhianwyn, not wanting to surrender the passports pretended to be asleep, but he 'woke' us up, demanding the passports, when asked "why ?" he said "For Police". Around midnight he came back around and handed out breakfast boxes ...

... be over as we were (cue the alarms going off every 10 minutes to notify us that he was exceeding the speed limit), we arrived in Arica early. This would have been great if the bus were due to arrive 3 hours later; unfortunately, it simply meant that we had to wait at the bus station for those 3 hours, whiling away the time until we had a chance of being able to check straight into our hostal. At least we got our passports back …

... 8217;s are, I was greeted by a man who asked if I needed to go to Arica, and as I did I said yes and he said follow me, to which I did. I was then greeted by another man who handed me a couple of forms to fill out and only asked to see my passport. This should have been my first clue that I wasn’t with a real colectivo as they do take your passport and fill out your paperwork on your behalf. But I was giving it all the benefit of the doubt and then ...
