Ideas para viajar desde el norte de Chile hasta rio de janeiro
If you are going from CALAMA to:
OLLAGUE - UYUNI, BOLIVIA
By bus near the center of calama (antofagasta street with Abaroa street)
at 6:00 am (from the bus station three blocks from the cathedral) From calama to uyuni the total cost is 9.ooo Chilean pesos.
THE TRAIN DOES NOT GO TO BOLIVIA ANYMORE, since 2 years ago
The bus FROM uyuni-bolivia comes to Calama, in the same days, but at 5 am.
GOING TO SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA:
there are several busses that go there starting at 7:30 in the morning , AND 8:30am. After 8.30am the next bus leaves at 10am. But , the travel takes 1:30 hours, so you will arrive there around midday, and the next busses depart from here at 13:30. Those companies depart from Antofagasta Street with Abaroa street in Calama too, and there is another company 2 blocks west in Antofagasta Street with SantaMaria street
To return to calama from san pedro there are several more busses until 18:00 and many of them arrive at the bus station in the center of the city (I think that calama is not a big city , so you can walk almost everywhere).
if you are GOING TO ARGENTINA:
there is Pullman bus and Geminis, they travel 3 times every week,
Geminis : sunday, tuesday and friday at 8:30 in the morning from calama (they pass by san pedro de atacama 1:30 hours later) It costs 24.000 chilean pesos, which is like 50 dollars
Pullman: monday, wednesday, and friday at 8:30 in the morning from calama (they pass by san pedro de atacama 1:30 hours later) It costs 30.000 chilean pesos, which is like 60 dollars
if you are GOING ALMOST ANYWHERE in CHILE:
, the busses depart many times to the north and south. buses like: tur bus. condor bus. ramos cholele. expreso norte. pullman bus. ciktur. etc.
TRY TO TAKE THE TRIP TO CHUQUICAMATA:
and every week day there is a trip to THE OPEN CAST COPPER MINE OF Chuquicamata, at 1pm from Calama. They return to Calama around 4-5 pm. You have to call beforehand at 55- 322122 to book. To arrive at the bus station where the tour begins, just take the shared taxi (colectivo) No.17 from Latorre Street, and ask the driver to take you to the corner of Granaderos and Central Sur (¨a Granaderos con Central Sur¨). After the tour you can catch the shared taxi No.17 to return to the centre as well.
