Great site. When I was there at the end of March 2008 the conditions were not too strong and were ideal for me to get a bit of experience with thermals. The down side is that this is the dessert and there is sand everywhere. : <(

Large area with car parking at the top of the mountain. Easy take off. As of January 2015, the place is being 'upgraded' with artificial grass, toilets, shades, etc. Various options including top landing. Bottom landing can be on the beach, various football pitches, just behind the Fly Park or on any other suitable sand dunes. If landing on a beach make sure you have enough height to get there over the city. Get advise from locals if you need to. Public transport works perfectly. Just take bus 121 or 3B from the market in Barros Arana street, near the intersection with Latorre street. Ask the local pilots. Ask the local pilots.

Ask the local pilots. Do not fly with a North wind. Do not fly if you see waves breaking offshore.
