Getting frm Valpariaso to Santiago

by flomurnane

We need to get from Valparaiso, Chile to Santiago Chile by bus! Can we take large luggage? We will be returning to San Francisco after a cruise to Valparaiso so we will have two large suitcases and a backpack each!!

do not worry, go to bus station
if you had to go to airport, to save time you could ask to stop before Santiago where there is a taxi park, short ride to airport... maybe two taxis

If you want to take the bus you are going to have to watch your luggage carefully. You can take luggage which will be stored under the bus and you will be given a ticket. Ask to get off at Pajaritos metro station if you need to get to the airport. Airport buses and taxis go from there. If you want to go to Santiago, you can get off at whichever bus station you arrive at as they are all on the metro. The metro stations have a lot of stairs going down but most have escalators going up.

When are you traveling from Valpariaso to Santiago - My wife, mother and I are traveling from Santiago Airport to Valpariaso on Feb. 14, 2010 for a cruise to Buenas Aires. We could rent a car and drive from the Airport and you could return the car to the Airport. (Maybe) We are from Glen Cove in Vallejo.

Travel Tips for Santiago

In Santiago you can do...

by Ragazzo20

In Santiago you can do everything: if you wanna sightseeing, you can do it without problems (big problems, because you have to take care of you like all cities of 6 million inhabitants). City is the safest in Latin America and health stantards are the best too, don't worry.
You can begin a city tour in old dowtown, Alameda Bernardo O'Higgins, Mall Paseo Ahumada and Paseo Huérfanos (a lot of shops, restaurants, cinemas, theaters). Plaza de Armas and Santa Lucía Hill.
after visit old neighborhoods in downtown: República, París Y Londres, Concha Y Toro, Brasil, and Parque Forestal, neoclassical neighborhoods of the old rich people. Visit Museum of Fine Arts and Museum of New Arts, almost the same construction like Petit Palais in Paris (Forestal Park).
After you can visit the Santiago's Latin Quartier: Bellavista, full of restaurants, museums, theaters.
Santiago Zoo located in Baquedano metro station (Italy Square) and the Virgin in San Cristobal Hill, the biggest park inside a city in the world, you can see all the city and the Andes Mountais.
After, you can go to Providencia, fashionable area to shop almost everything, good restaurants and stores.
New zone of Santiago called Sanhattan (Manhattan of Santiago) is El Golf, Vitacura, El Bosque, Apoquindo, Las Condes and Kennedy neighborhoods.
The biggest and good shopping centers are Alto Las Condes and Parque Arauco. This year Costanera Center Shopping will be open (will be the most luxurous and biggest).
You can enjoy all Santiago's option of a big city like this, but if you wanna do other things: you have to get up to mountains and ski in Valle Nevado, Farellones, La Parva, Colorado, located to 50 kms aproximated from downtown.
Viña del Mar, fashionable resort of 400.000 inhabitants (1 million in Valparaiso Metropolitan Area) is really good city, Valparaiso and its hills, its downtown inspirated in London, UK, and this european sensation is very good.

Swiss food is better than in Switzerland

by Skigirl about Le Montagnard

The service is impeccable, the fondue was delicious. The View overlooking the sun set over the Andes - incredible. The Chocolate Fondue . . . Both milk and dark presented with fresh fruits (apples, pears, bananas, kiwi), cakes, marshmellows and apple fritters. A gastronomic feast for the tastebuds especially if you are a chocaholic!

A real gem !

by Openseas

The museum had a fantastic collection of pre-columbian art.The early textile fabrics were amazing and the early pottery simply beautiful.This is a must do whilst in Santiago.The museum is well laid out and easy to view.Most artifacts were donated by the Larain family personel collection.You only need about one hour here as the museum is rather small.
