Santa Rosa.  Hotel Colonial (there are a lot of hotels with a similar name) 50,000 COP for a matrimonial. This one is a nice, modern hotel without a lot of charm, but with a car park attached to it.  Most hotels did not have parking in Santa Rosa, so if you need it, this is your best bet.  Very close to the main square as well.  wifi, and agua caliente.  Recommended.

Salento – Hostel Floresta – 32,000 COP for a double w/ shared bath.  Clean with secure parking and access to the kitchen, agua caliente.  wifi was dubious as was the water supply – but this was for the whole town.  Very quiet.  If you go to Salento, visit the Speakeasy restaurant at the entrance to the town (7 min from Hostel Floresta).  Great vibe, yummy food.  Recommended based on price

Buga – Buga Hostel – 35,000 COP for a double w/ shared bath.  Across the street from a secure car park (2,500 COP / bike / 24 hours).  Access to a kitchen (w/ professional tools), attached to a nice resto-bar w/ great food at reasonable prices.  wifi was strong.  It might be noisy on weekends due to the bar.  Recommended.

San Agustin – La Casa de Francois.  We camped on the lawn for 12,000 COP / person (he doesn’t have to discount).  Really nice hostel w/ ping pong, great kitchen and dining areas, hammocks, a restaurant that serves fresh french bread, home mad jam & coffee from the coffee trees on the property.  Secure parking, agua caliente & wifi.  Highly recommended

Pasto – Koala Inn.  30,000 COP for a double w/ shared bath.  We couldn’t find parking in any of the budget hotels, but did find a secure parqueadoro around the block for just 2,500 COP per bike / 24 hours (after pointing out their posted prices).  Wifi, agua caliente.  Recommended.

Tumbes – Isis Hotel S/ 70 for a private double.  Just off the main square.  Wifi, hot water, fan.  Parking for S/ 3 per bike overnight at a secure car park 2 blocks away.  Tumbes seems dodgy, we wanted quick and easy.

Barranca – Hostel 9 de Deciembre – S/ 30 for a private double.  No wifi, parking for 2 motos in the owner’s garage.  It is close to a great super market.  Barranca is a bit of a hole – we wouldn’t recommend the town, period – but if you have to… this place is at least clean.

Cabanilla – Only Hospedaje in town – on the main road.  Big sign.  S/ 25.  Not a particularly friendly town, but it was mid-way to Arequipa.  Very basic, shared bath, no hot water, no wifi, parking in the lobby only for motos – and it is a challenge at best.

Arequipa – Hospedaje Samana Huasi on Puente Grau.  S/ 35 for two people, private bath (but we negotiated hard – S/ 50 was the quote).   Wifi – sort of, hot water – sort of, great parking for motos in the court-yard.

Tacna – Hostal Plaza S/ 50 for a private matrimonial.  Modern, clean, wifi and next to the main square.  No parking, but a car park is only 1 block away – we negotiated S / 10 for two bikes which fit into one spot, but if you have a car or a truck, it is S/ 6 (????).  No reason to stop in Tacna unless your chain and sprocket is looking too dodgy to ride into the desert in the evening.

CHILE (all prices in Chilean Pesos)

Arica – Hostal Sunny Days – $18,000 for a private matrimonial w/ shared bath.  Wifi, excellent parking for all vehicles, breakfast included, kitchen, bikes, board rentals, close to the beach and market.  Not too much to see in Arica – but its where our sprockets were waiting for us.  Highly recommended.

Near Antofagasta – Free beach camping.  South of town to where the pavement becomes a dirt road – around the corner from Puerto Coloso.  Safe and not very crowded with easy access.  Fantastic views and lots of waves to watch & hear.  Garbage bins present, but no toilets… but lots of rocky areas.  Don’t do as the locals do…pack out your paper, if you must use it.  Some of the toilet ‘areas’ are un-sightly due to garbage.

Playa Cisne – Free beach camping.  This beach is further south than the gorgeous, but over-run Bahia Inglesia, which is 5 minutes from Caldera, Chile. Great swimming and views at Playa Cisne, safe, easy access.  Busy during the day, some families stay overnight, but it is not crowded.  No garbage bins or toilets present.

La Serena – Hostal Kalycanto.  Nice, family run hostel consisting of 3 buildings.  Privat parking is included but is a few blocks away (they give you a key).  Kitchens and wifi / computer stations in all three buildings.  One has a gorgeous courtyard w/ BBQ, pool table and ping pong tables.  Laundry available or you can ask to DIY ‘para mano’ if you have your own detergent.

Puerto VarasCasa Azul.  Double w/ shared bath: $19,000.  Gorgeous hostel, but didn’t feel super welcoming.  Lots of rules (like no kitchen in the am!), and areas ‘privado’.  They serve breakfast for $3,000 per person (hence no kitchen in the am).  Hot showers, wifi, and parking space for bikes or possibly a small car.  Great garden space but not many comfortable areas to lounge indoors if the weather is bad.

WESTERN USA – all prices are in American Dollars

Tecopa, California.  Camping near the privately owned hot pools.  $16 included flush toilets and a wash-up area.
