Travel to Valparaiso

by g.e.schaller

Question One:
Is there bus or train from the airport to Santiago? I need to get to the Sheraton Hotels. How much is a taxi?


I will be staying at the Sheraton Hotel in Santiago. I need bus transportation to Valparaiso, then to the docks to connect with a cruise ship.
It looks like a bus leaves every 15 minutes and will stop in Valparaiso. How far is the Bus Stop from the port? About how much for a taxi?

Take a taxi to the hotel, which will cost about US$30. Book it before you leave the customs area.
The bus is the most economical way to get to Valparaiso but not the easiest and bus stations with a lot of luggage are not a good idea. Taxis are usually available for around US$120 for the 1.5 hour trip from Santiago to the cruise port. You might find people to share a transfer on one of the cruise specific forums.

Yes there is a bus (only about $1.50), but it will not take you to the Sheraton. This would mean that once in Santiago you would still need to take a taxi, or the metro or a local bus. Considering that you are going on a cruise, you probably will be carrying too much luggage to make the last two options practical. Actually, all things considered you should probably just take a taxi straight to the Sheraton from the airport.

The bus station in Valparaiso is not really very far from the cruise port, but still probably too far to haul a bunch of luggage. (Maybe about 20 blocks.) I do not know the exact cost of a taxi from the bus station, but it should not be more that 5,000 pesos (less than $10). As suggested by the earlier post, you must be very careful in bus stations.

good luck

Travel Tips for Santiago

St. Patrick's Day

by SabrinaSummerville

St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland and it's said that he banished the snakes from the country (we don't have any snakes at all in Ireland!).

As an Irish Cailin (colleen/girl) you cn imagine my surprise to arrive at the Santiago Sheraton and find signs for St. Patrick's Day all over the place. Indeed, the hotel was devoting a whole week to the celebrations (which is more than we do here) and offering free drinks to anyone named Patricio.

On enquiry I found out that Chile has very strong connections with Ireland and it was an Irish man by the name of O'Higgins who founded the Chilean Navy.

Here's a pic of Mum posing in the lobby of the hotel beside a giant shamrock.

Iglesia de la Veracruz & the Lastarria area

by globetrott

Iglesia de la Veracruz is the name of this lovely church on my main picture,unfortunately it is locked during the day so I could not take a look inside. You will find it in the centre of the so-called area of "Lastarria" where artists are living and selling their works of art, there are nice cafes and restaurants as well as a fleamarket at least on saturdays.
I mainly enjoyed the special architecture of some of the unique buildings there. My photos #2-5 were taken in the street "Villavicencio", opposite of Iglesia de la Veracruz.
------------------------
For Lastarria search on your map for metrostation "Museo Precolombino" from there it is just about 100 meters !

Transvip Minivan

by milliturtle

Transvip offers a minivan service from the Santiago airport to the various location in and around the city. My friend and I did not use the shared van because it only cost 2,000 CLP more for the private transfer (taxi). We left really early at 3:30am, so it took less than 30 minutes to get from near Cerro Santa Lucia to the airport. The driver was prompt and we can pay by credit card when we got to the airport.

Reservations can be made online up to 48 hours before the pick-up time. The website is only in Spanish, so we had to use google translate to complete the form. I contacted the company because I accidentally double-booked the transport and they corrected my reservation within 30 minutes of my emailing them.

This is probably more expensive than a taxi (and the metro/bus combo), but if you have a lot of luggage or have to travel at times buses aren't running, it is a good alternative.

$1 drink -million dollar view

by TheWanderingCamel about Don't know

I have no idea what this place in Valparaiso was called -but you can hardly mistake it for anything else. I seem to remember it being some sort of tourist information place as well as a cafe. Whatever -it certainly is a landmark in the area known as Cerro Concepcion. The information office was at street level and we went downstairs to a wide terraced cafe for a drink. The view was truly spectacular -definitely a million dollar one.

The Santa Lucia Hill

by mev1976

The Cerro Santa Lucia, it´s in the middle of the city, It´s a hill and was one the first places where Pedro de Valdia ( our conqueror) founded the city in Feb 12th of 1554
Now it´s a nice place , with a magnificent entrance and a nice Casttle ( chilean one) on the top, You can walk inside some of the pads and stay a nice time try to do it´s early and not get into dark zones, because get´s pretty dangereous after midday.
There is an craftsmanship indigenous center of on the hill, also a tourist information office. You can have a great view of the city, specially after a rainy day.
