Paul Theroux - The Old Patagonian Express is very enjoyable - whether you're going to South America or not smile

Isobel Allende's book about Chile is v good - it's called My Remembered Country or something like that.

Bruce Chatwin's In Patagonia is great - travel writing, but literary travel writing iykwim. Also Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Clandestine in Chile is interesting about making a film undetected by the authorities.
