The amount of time it takes from the Middle School to Antofagasta is 4,785 miles by car. You would go from Michigan through Mexico and Central America down to South America, then to Chile. I would stay at the Amaru Apart Hotel. It is a wonderful hotel with wifi, clean rooms, and a pool! It also has a good beach view. When in Chile, it depends on the season
