Chile road trip from Santiago to Arica in May-June 2015 - anyone want to join us?

Hi all

We are an Australian couple, mid-20s, friendly and easy going travellers. We arrive in Santiago on May 4 and will be in South America for 3 months.

Our plan is to buy a ready-to-go camper 4x4 vehicle in Santiago from a fellow traveller and then road trip up to Arica (maybe venture into Peru for a few weeks). We are looking to get surf, hiking and general good adventures, "buena onda" (good vibes) so to speak..

We plan to stop by La Serena, Antofagasta, San Pedro de Atacama, Iquique and Arica. Plus all the good camp spots and beaches inbetween!


For sale end of March to mid April in Santiago or Buenas Aires is our 1998 Nissan D21/Frontier/Terrano Pickup Truck.

This is a 4x4 (4 wheel drive) truck with 4 doors and a short bed.
The truck is a manual transmission with 5 speed

We purchased this truck in santiago in early February and have driven it down south, and now back up through Argentina.

The truck is in excellent condition and is the perfect vehicle to explore the wild and less visited areas of these beautiful South American country's.

Recommended mechanics in Santiago area?

We are buying a 1997 Kia Besta van in Valparaiso, Chile and want to get it checked out and serviced before we hit the open road! Anyone have any recommendations for a reliable mechanic/shop in the Santiago area? We don't speak a ton of Spanish but can get by, so just looking for someone trustworthy and honest.

thanks, any/all input appreciated :)

4x4 Mitsubishi Montero Camper (with bed) For Sale in Chile (ideally Santiago)

Sadly we are finishing our road trip in South America to return to Australia, and selling our home.

Our 4x4 2002 Mitsubishi Montero (also called a Mitsubishi Challenger) is in great condition, with low km’s, perfect reliability, lots of camping gear and a double bed in the back. The car has been serviced very regularly at official Mitsubishi service centres, with genuine Mitsubishi parts (not cheap, but worth it!).
