Need transportation from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales in evening

by chilefan

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.

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.

Flight Tip

If you are arriving by plane, make sure that you reserve a window seat o the left hand side of the aircraft; seat “A”. The flight path follows the course of the Andes Mountains. Snow covered peaks, glaciers and deep valleys can be seen from the plane. Sometimes it seams one can touch the mountains below - since they reach 6000 meters and more.

Pingüineras de Seno Otway (punta Arena)

by ezaguryk

In an area of 80 hectares, which extends throughout 2 km of coast, it is possible to observe a colony of penguins of Magellan’s (spheniscus magallanicus) nests forming great groups putting one or two eggs. The penguins are extremely timid animals. For that reason, be quiet, do not smoke or trie to feed them. Best the hour to visit them they are 9 to 10 19 a.m. and from 17 to p.m.

Los pingüinos son animales extremadamente tímidos. Por ello, sea silencioso, no fume i trate de alimentarlos. Las mejores hora de visitarlos son 9 a 10 am y de 17 a 19 pm” Turistel sur 2005%

The Main Cathedral

by MikeAtSea

The Main Cathedral of Punta Arenas is one of the impressive buildings that lines the main square. In the courtyard of the cathedral one can find a monument from 1912 dedicated to Maria to protect all Catholics in the Magellan Region. It is a beautiful building that originates from the beginning of the 20th century.

Cementerio

by ezaguryk

Can sound crazy to visit a cemetery, but is it part of the culture of the town, very interesting as they honor to its dead, in the tombs they have photos, flowers and a small summary of the person. The tombs are placed one on top the other and in the sides that created a big block and colored see picture

Puede sonar loco visitar un cementerio, pero es parte de la cultura de la ciudad. Es muy interesante como ellos honran a sus muertos, en las tumbas que tienen fotos, las flores y un pequeño resumen de la persona. Las tumbas se colocan uno encima del otro y en los lados que crean un gran bloque y coloreados. vea la foto.
