COLD WATER HEAVEN The best and most uncrowded waves you will ever find in the south just bring a wetsuit - Just did a van trip through the entire coast of Chile and scored the waves of my life down in the south.
Buchupureo and all the points like Rinconada,Pullay,Tregaulemu friggen blew my mind...absolutely ridiculous amount of empty left sand bottom point breaks for like a 100km stretch and offshore all day in the southerly trade winds it was like surfing empty Indo in the 70's just with cold water! Amazing nature down there also.
Punta de lobos was pretty sick too.Looooong lefts and a fun town to hang out in but in the south was where all the best setups were.
Iquique was also sick...Intendencia OMG one of the heaviest lefts I've ever surfed but still the North had nothing on the south in my opinion.

BEST SPOT IN CHILE - its simply the best wave in chile. 15sec tubes when its on. Pullay Hostel is a great option. a lot of places want top dollar for not great accom. in Pullay you can have 3 meals a day private room in front of an amazing wave for the same price you pay for a dorm in town or at punta de lobos
