The question was:
My wife, Robin, and I will be departing St. Jean for Santiago on or about Dec 15th. Most of what I have read before warns of unexpected closures, and potentially long stages between lodging. I am assuming that will still be the case this year, but will the Holy Year activity cause others to say “enough” and close up as well when they otherwise might have remained open?
