Need transportation from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales in evening
Does anyone know a reliable private car/driver or taxi service to take 2 people from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales at 10pm in the evening? We arrive after the last bus (8pm, I believe) and need to be in Puerto Natales by 8am. What's the cost? Thanks.
Re: Need transportation from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales in evening
You'll need to contact a few travel agencies in Punta Arenas to find out if they offer the service and how much it costs. This ons says it does private transfers between Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales (service # 6).
I imagine this is going to be expensive given the distance and time of night, but I don't know how much it might be.Lodging can usually arrange things for less, but you don't seem to be spending the night anywhere. Maybe contact sandypoint.cl too, who do airport transfers in Punta Arenas but also other transfers.
