But careful – winter is from July to September and summer from December to February! February is peak season in Chile and I heard horror stories of sold out or even over-booked accommodations and super busy tourist attractions. I visited Chile in August/September and it was absolutely perfect. I only met very few travellers, it was super easy to find accommodation and last minute bus tickets. I still bought…

Last time I checked prices they were 25€ pp. dorms with bunk beds, kitchen and bathrooms, but no showers are found here…
