The north of Chile is really expensive, I suspect because of the mining boom. Trying to find accomodation on the weekend was a bit tough, let alone accomodation we could afford. This charming little number was literally on the side of the highway. Labelled “cabanas” we were surprised to learn that they did not have a kitchen, tv, breakfast or wifi, especially with the $50 a night price tag. We had a look anyway and found it to be a shipping container with a dodgy palm leaf roof.
The owner keep telling us “lindo, lindo!” (beautiful) but I’m not sure we could see it.
