Here they call it sazón chilena (Chilean seasoning), and it imbues all of this country's most beloved dishes. Come with me on a tasty…

If you’re planning on choosing a holiday with a whole new sense of adventure, there seems to be a huge number of places still available to surprise - even shock and stun - the most jaded traveler. Yet while the temples of southeast Asia, vast canyons of North America, and unmistakable coastlines of Europe are all fantastic places to lose yourself for a week or two, one continent stands out from all the rest as a partygoer’s dream: Central and South America.

  • I have just heard about the 'civil unrest' taking place in Patagonia. Apparently the National Government is planning to reduce subsidies for natural gas and people are up in arms about it (almost literally). It seems pretty chaotic right now and one of problems affecting tourists is that the protesters are intending to obstruct access to Torres del Paine in effort to 'get heard' by the government. There are strikes and many businesses have temporarily closed down. Is there anyone here who can provide first hand information?

  • In case anyone's still looking for details, especially about travel to Chile, I've posted the latest info from the U.S. State Department, Turismo Chile, LAN Airlines and a local tour operator, as well as some post-quake photos showing, for a change, what's in GOOD condition in Santiago: http://www.LatinFlyerBlog.com
  • From what I have heard, there is a lot of infrastructure damage in the Central Region between Valparaiso and Concepcion particularly. Roads damaged around Santiago too. Santiago Airport has been slightly damaged and as of yesterday was supposed to be closed for 3 days at least. Other airports and ports are also closed. In Santiago the metro is not working either, naturally. Bridges and tunnels were worst affected. Yesterday electricity was intermittent. Internet access is better than phone service. I will be updating the situation on my facebook feed at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sacred-Earth-Travel/277994720335?ref=ts as news comes in.
