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!

Volcanos, wildlife, traditional Aymara villages. Should be great. Twitcher's Corner - lots of birds here. White, brown and grey gulls, oystercatchers, some dark birds that soar above but look too small for ...

An awfully, frightfully, top drawer, nicely tea! We had white gloved waitresses who brought us individual pots of freshly brewed tea, dainty sandwiches, strawberry tarts, warm scones and cream and lovely lickle cakes to choose from. What made it so wonderful was the location - we were in the Observatory Lounge - deck 9 as the Pacific Ocean passed us ...

Also a very large "Christ of the Andes" statue overlooking the harbor. Walked down from the hill back through town. Wanted to redo some photos inside the cathedral but it was closed. ...

... out?

Our contemplation was brought to an abrupt end when the conductor decided to put on a film. Genre? That’s right, action! Cue lots of loud gunfire and shouting, perfect for the start of an overnight bus ride! On the plus side, there was no longer any peace and quiet to worry in …

The bus had left at 8pm and the light faded fast as we sped back west toward Antofagasta. San Pedro had been an amazing place to spend a few days and we ...
