    ... Then the fun began. You travel from the airport to a bus terminal, where large, old and beaten up Ford sedans (called collectivos) take you on the 60km journey to Arica. This involves myriad paperwork, two border checks (Peru and Chile) and a drive along the desolate Panamerican Highway. Arica is pleasant.

    ... but surfing wasn't on my agenda and I chose not to visit the beach in my few days there since I had no desire to either be burnt or covered in sand. Chile is vastly different to Peru, and the city much smarter, although I still really hate navigating through grid systems in cities.
