car drive to puerto natales

by hillelarkin

I have 2 questions on car driving from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales (we will be there mid February, 2009):
1) we will arrive by flight from Puerto Montt at about 18.30 PM (namely, will be out of the airport about 19.30. Are the car rental offices still operating at the airport?
2) How long is the drive to P. Natales??

Hy,
AVIS office is open everyday 08:30 - 22:30 (President Ibanez Apo, Punta Arenas,Chile 56-61-614378) or here: https://www.avis.com/AvisWeb/home/AvisHome. Maybe it's better you rent the car online.
Kms are around 240, time around 4 hours.

You would need to book the car online before you come as stock is limited and February is high season. Then you are guaranteed to be met.

Thanks a lot. I did check with some car rental agencies and it seems that there are high drop-off cherges if the car is left. in P. Natales. Consequently, we want to consider taking abus form P. Arenas to P. Natales and rent a car there (if any, because maybe we don't need a car at all for TdP - I had posted a question on in in the TdP forum).

My questions are:
1) How late and how often run the buses between P. Arenas and P. Natales?
2) do they go thru the P. Arenas airport or we have to get to the city?
3) is a cab or remiss an option and how more expensive can it be that the bus?

Thanks again - Hillel

Travel Tips for Punta Arenas

stray-dogs

by globetrott

Stray-dogs seem to be a common problem in Chile and you will see them at many places. Some of them are really clever and they made the surroundings of the Magellan-monument their home, sitting on the benches and begging for food at the tourists. At least they are mostly not agressive but rather intimidated and will run away, when you shout at them or make a step forward.
The couple from Germany that I met in their motorhome in Punta Arenas told me they are always glad to find such dogs, they will give them some food and while they are going into town the dog will guard their motorhome and let nobody else get close to the car than the owners.

local wildlife

by willy_wonka

a short drive out of the city and you will come to the heath lands and pampas that the south of chile is renowned for. here there are numerous wildlife sightings to be had... a simple drive in the car and you'll usually come across the guanaco, who with a huge leap will jump the fence and continue on their merry way. pumas are also said to be seen, although i didnt see any. birdlife is spectacular, and there are numerous day tours from punta arenas that will take the bird enthusiasts out. of course, the marine life here is stunning. whales and dolphins can be seen with boat tours, and of course there is the penguins, which i will talk about in my next tips....

Mirador Cerro de la Cruz

by vtveen

On one side of the Plaza de Armas lies the municipal cathedral of Punta Arenas. Take the street next to the Cathedral for three blocks, cross the (busy)Avenida Espana and climb the steps to Mirador Cerro de la Cruz (Mount of the Cross).

From this viewing point we had a wonderful view of the city with its coloured houses, commercial buildings, the harbour, Strait of Magellan and (on this rather clear day) we even could see Tierra del Fuego.

Fondest Memory
Next to the Mirador is a small café/tearoom and because we were visiting during a public holiday it was closed. After some knocking on the door the owners opened their ‘shop’ and prepared special for us ‘Dutchies’ a (simple) lunch. The fire was poked and while waiting for our meal we even got some (Spanish) magazines to read.

House Sara Braun

by MikeAtSea

One can only imagine the wealth of those who made it and became rich on the turn of the 19th to the 20th century if one looks at the mansions that line the main square. One of the palaces is the house of Sara Braun, associated to the Mendendez family and an impressive sight with many rooms, a winter garden and ball room to celebrate social events.

The Naval and Maritime Museum

by MikeAtSea

Inaugurated in 1995 it is an important collection of the history and maritime interests of the Chilean Navy. One can find paintings, photo collections, scale models and relicts of local and international sailors that sailed through the Southern Atlantic. Also on display are maritime and naval instruments.
