... about an hour for an apparently no existent bus before we decided that taxi would be a good idea. When one finally rocked up, 4 of us jumped straight in.Our driver was only happy to drive us to the border, but was happy to organise one of his mates to pick us up on the Chilean side which was nice of him. We exited Argentina pretty easily and then had to change taxis in between the borders and entered Chile equally as easy. We ended up paying less for the trip to ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHosteria Posada del Rio Chile Chico
The Posada is very nice. The room is comfortable and the breakfast is good. You don't get in touch with other People and the Posada is really out of town. You can't walk and when you don't have a car, you Need a taxi and there might be no oportunity to do a tour.
