Maps

Postby panc.jefe » Fri Dec 26, 2014 7:59 pm

Anyone have a good recommendation on where to buy good maps of Chile, Bolivia, and Argentina? We are planning a trip down to Tierra Del Fuego and need maps to augment the GPS.
Thanks,
JH

Assuming you do not want to download or print any.. and other than buying off Amazon and having them shipped, they may have some at the book stores in jockey, or one of the open plazas. Without knowing for sure, thats where id start

Thanks, danjanker. I'm staying near LarcoMar, so I'll try the bookstores there first if I don't get other more specific suggestions.

South American Explorers used to have a good map collection, although I wouldn't know if they still do, or even if they have what you're looking for. You could drop in to their office, or even send them a PM here, as they occasionally post on the website.

This was posted in an old thread. Don't know if they have what you're looking for because it only only mentions Peru, but maybe it's worth a look. As suggested, I bet South American Explorers would either have maps or know where to direct you.

You could buy a map in Lima 2000. That is on Av Arequipa, about 100 meters after going through the tunnel under Javier Prado ( coming from Miraflores )
They have a handy 'Taxi' map, but also a huge map of like 3 by 4 meters ..
Have a look, they sell all types of maps of Lima, Peru and other cities in Peru.

The Lima 2000 Taxi map used to be sold in the airport, but not any more. It is excellent for improvised navigating around Lima, especially for someone like me who lives out of town and never learned all the barrios yet still has to find obscure offices. Once you know roughly where you are you can at least pick a bus going vaguely in the right direction and improvise from there.
