The hostel was clean and and the staff was helpful. It was exactly what you would expect from a good hostel, but breakfast and dinner was included in the price of a dorm room. An excellent value for cost. We aren't sure if that is just during the high and mid season, but definitely worth considering if you are headed there.

We put neosporin on his feet and knees and asked our caretaker for a first aid kit when we went down to breakfast so we could patch the bottom of the foot, which already had formed a huge blister. ...
... and we would get a 90 day visa – still wouldn't budge. We asked them to call the lady here (we have her name and number) but they refused.
Seriously stressed and it put us on a downer for our mini holiday.
Now we have to decidd how to back into Chile...but not via this border!
We looked into coming back via Paso HuaHum which apparently is absolutely stunning, but there is no public transport from San Martin over ...
... an hour riding with an obvious tilt to the right while trying to maintain a straight line. We take cover behind the wood fence of a house and have lunch while watching the trees bend in the wind. By 2:30pm, the wind isn’t letting up at all, so we set up the tent to get a little warmer. We read and nap while watching the clock tick the hours away…5pm, 6pm, 7pm. We are anxious, “Is the wind better? It looks a little better. Should we ...
