The apparent mispeeling "Antartica" occurs in a Spanish phrase. Is it correct? -phma
Pisco sour is peruvian. There was a sentence wich said:"....pisco sour (the national drink)". That's a fake. Anyway, if you don't believe me. Please go to www.es.wikipedia.org and you'll sea. Please don't confuse people. Pisco sour is PERUVIAN.
In reality, the term "Pisco" was internationally trade-marked by Chile, so legally pisco is chilean. It is also made in Peru, but they don´t own the patent. There is no need to type in CAPS, when the law is on your side! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs)
Cities and Other Destinations
Help! I have almost finished a regional map for Chile. The geography makes this an incredibly tough map to get right. There is barely enough space to show roads, let alone place names. Can somebody who knows Chile (that certainly is not me) weed down the mass of cities and other destinations listed in the article to a sensible list of a maximum 9 of each please. I will then try to show all of them on the map. To get the ball rolling, it would seem to me these are must haves:

As chilean I think I can clarify some points. I wouldn't recommend to hitchhike, it may be specially dangerous for non spanish speakers.
Also I would add taxis as transport, but ideally with a gps app for knowing the route to your destination and avoid innecessary detours that some taxi drivers may do to scam tourists.
On the sanitary matter, in Chile there's no danger to get affected with dengue or other third world diseases, mosquitoes don't transmit infectious diseases in Chile. But it is perilous to eat raw shellfish as in ceviche or just marinated in lemon juice, it may cause from indigestion to intoxications with red tide harmful microorganisms.
Bribing cops is not only an offense, but also is ilegal, so better you won't.
It is not necessary unsafe to take your cell phone with you, just be cautious where you keep it and try to use it inside a store, café or hotel, online maps such as google maps are very reliable for big cities in case you won't find any non-spanish speaker to help you with directions. 188.8.131.52 13:34, 10 August 2012 (EDT)
Was this article written by a chilean? It look more like cheap propaganda than an actual tourism guide. Crime in Chile is equal than in most South American countries, their police is easily bribed and their inequality level is one of the highest of the region. Please fix, i have never seen this kind of self-promotion. —The preceding comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs)
