Fantastic photos! I'm currently planning my own South America trip, and will be doing this flight in reverse - Atacama to Santiago. My question is: how did you get from the town of San Pedro to the airport in Calama?

Thanks Carrie. I took the local airport shuttle. I can't recall if I arranged it through the hostel, but it wasn't a problem.

I am currently in Vina Del mar. If you had 4 days (max) remaining before you had to fly out of Santiago, would you recommend using them for Atacama? Hopefully you get this quickly. If not there, where would you recommend in Chile. came in on Cruce De Los Lagos and saw the Puerto Varas area. Check out my blog http://www.richtrek.com ... and lm, cheers man!

Leaving to Calama on the 21st of December and have a question: do you remember how long it took you to get off the plane and collect your luggage?

Really breathtaking image of Chilean mountain ranges.
So much awesome. You must not miss the traditional events in Santiago like pattaraday festival, and the patupat in Bannawag, the station of the cross in balintokatok.
