Visiting Chile

Hi friends,

I live here in Curico, a town 200 km south of Santiago de Chile, and I would be proud to meet RTW travelers.

Please don't hesitate to contact me at "link above" and at least you will eat a good "asado" at home with some Chilean friends.

Greetings,

Jose Pedro

The weather in April in Santiago is the start of the winter, with low temperatures and cloudy days, probably some rains. About temperatures, today the web site of the Metereological is not working to see the historical data, this site is www.meteochile.cl Anyway you will find temperatures around 18°C max and 7°C min. with a lot of variability.

The road is completly paved in the Chilean territory, and I undestant is the same in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Please contact the Comunity in Colombia in this site.
Please visit Colombia, if you travel following some criteria you will never regret to visit one of the most beautiful countries in the region, and the Colombians are people really friendly, more that any other in Latin America.

The Chilean north is very dry and the distances are very long. From La Serena the landscape change turning more green and more littles towns. But for me the best of the country is the south, from Temuco to Puertto Montt, in special the lakes region.

Please stay in contact to help you more. In this site you can find my email in my profile.

Will be a plesure to help you visiting my country
