COPEC Guides
The Copec Chiletur guides are the successors of the famous TURISTEL guides since late 2008, when Copec bought the publishing rights. They are almost the same as Turistel (they used the same material), being the main difference the lack of publicity for hotels, stores, agencies, etc. In the maps, only Copec gas stations are mentioned.
