Hitchhiking out

North & West Caldera, Antofagasta

Walk in direction north west from the center onto the Ruta 5 parallel to a train line. There's a roundabout you can use to get onto the road or walk a little further to get to the COPEC gas station, where you can calmly ask people for rides going to Caldera, Bahia Inglesa, Chañaral, Taltal and Antofagasta. On the weekend many people just go to the beach so they are usually not going very far. Try asking for the "peaje" (toll) instead, which is 30 km from Copiapó on the highway. Long distance trucks will pass by there.
