Both inside the customs are and outside at kiosks (NOT drivers with 'badges' wandering around)you can book a car and driver with Radio Movil or Taxi Oficial. The cost will be around 130 US dollars. Tipping is not customary.

Just before you leave the customs area there are some taxi services. Just outside the sliding doors but inside the building are some more. These are pre-paid. Do not take a taxi outside on the ramp as you may get ripped off.

Oh I forgot - it will be far cheaper to take a taxi or the transfer bus (big blue ones, not minibusses) to Pajaritos Metro station. From here you can catch a coach to Valparaiso and from the terminus there a taxi to your hotel It will be a lot cheaper than a taxi to Valparaiso which is about 120km from Santiago.

This is not at all that complicated. The blue bus leaves from the airport terminal building and stops at Pajaritos Metro Station on its way into Santiago. Here you walk through the station to the other side where you can catch a bus to Valparaiso. The busses are modern and safe. It is best to stick to Turbus or Pullman. Kiosks at the station sell the tickets and you have a pre-booked seat, so no shoving for your seat.

Travel Tips for Santiago

The Amazing Andes

by Jefie

If you read my tourist trap tip, you already know that I didn't get to see much of the Andes, but every time their snowy peaks would appear as if magically in the sky, my heart would skip a beat. I've seen the Rockies and yes, they are beautiful, but there is something majestic and almost mythic about the Andes. The way they kept appearing and disappearing, it was almost as though they were teasing me to come back and see more of them another time. And you know what? I probably will!

Los Dominicos - church and handicrafts

by jumpingnorman

It was an extra "Sunday" morning and we were wondering where we could go, using the subway of Santiago. And I remembered one of my tour guides telling me to take the RED subway and to just go at it's eastern end, Los Dominicos. (the very end of the subway). Apparently, this is a new addition to the subway system as it ended early before, only until Escuela Militar. But now, it went beyond that...ending at Los Dominicos (as of 2010).

And so on that Sunday morning, my friend Riezl and I rode the subway and we went to Los Dominicos where we immediately saw the beautfiul church and even got in time for mass there. We did not finish the mass as we walked around the suburban village around it, where a marathon was going on at the time.

Los Dominicos is famous for the HANDICRAFTS, with several handicraft stores with those products made of lapis lazuli, ceramics, wicker, copper, and leather.

Overall, a great getaway from Santiago and accessible easily through the subway system :)

Electronic Music

by Popstar99 about La Feria

Electronica of the finest Santiago has to offer. Well, to admit it, there is still not a whole lot, but this place is very nice and has nice people. Price is higher than in other clubs and the party starts very late on Fridays and Saturdays (around 2am)

Check out DJ Tony Mass - He rocks. In general, people do not dress up very much to go out, but if you want to show your kickass shirt, this is the place to do so.

Few Veg restaurants

by XKuger about El Gorto

This is one of those few restaurants that has a decent veg/vegan selection. This was located in Provencia in downtown Santiago. It was located on a street right behind the hotel where I stayed which was the Hotel Orly.

The owner of the restaurant was very accomoditaing and explained every dish in english as to what it contained. I had a local flavoured vegan meal. Don't quite remember the name however it tasted real nice.

Also had a fruit drink made of a local fruit.

My favorite spot in Santiago

by Jefie

When Benjamín Vicuña Mackenna was elected mayor of Santiago in 1872, one of his first decisions was to improve the city's urban environment and among his many projects was the development of Cerro Santa Lucia, a 69 m hill that stands in the middle of downtown Santiago. This hill already was of great historical importance since it was where Pedro de Valdivia founded the city of Santiago in the name of Spain back in 1541 (a monument marks the spot where the ceremony took place). About 150 prisoners were put to work to build different paths and lookouts that lead visitors from the bottom of the hill to the chapel where Vicuña Mackenna was eventually buried, and to the beautiful Castle Hildalgo.

From the top of the hill you get one of the best views of the city and the surrounding Andes. Cerro Santa Lucia is open every day from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, free of charge. You will however be asked to provide your passport information - this safety measure was added a few years ago to make sure the hill remains a safe spot for visitors and locals alike. If you only have a few hours to spend in the city, I would definitely recommend putting Cerro Santa Lucia at the top of your list of things to do, it was my favorite spot in all of Santiago!
