How to get from cruise ship in Valparaiso, Chile, to Santiago, Chile

by JeriMullarkey

We arrive on NCL Sun cruise ship at Valparaiso, Chile, Jan. 17. We want to stay in Santiago after our cruise. We have found no affordable transportation from Valparaiso to Santiago.
How do the 4 of us get to Santiago from Valparaiso with 2 big suitcases each in an affordable way?
Thanks.
Jeri

You can easily take the bus. On a per person basis it is not expensive, but I think I recall reading that a taxi costs $75. Divided by four this would not be bad and only slightly more than the bus. Unfortunately, with the common taxis of Chile I think you would be very tight with so much luggage, if you could fit at all. You might find a larger car taxi or even take two taxis. (Considering your luggage and the challenge of moving around Santiago with lots of luggage, this might still be appealing.).

Be aware that it is very unlikely. in my opinion, that you will get the lowest rate hiring the first taxi(s) you see when you get off the boat. Have a little patience and negotiate. If all else fails, you can always take the bus.

good luck.

Or rent a large car? Chilean roads and driving behaviours are civilised (by Latin American standards!)

The bus option is not very practical if you have two large suitcases each. There are no porters or trolleys in the bus stations. You are also going to have to taxi to the bus station in Valparaíso and taxi from the Santiago bus station to your hotel. You won't all fit in one taxi. You will not be able to manage the metro as there are a lot of stairs. If you have not booked a hotel yet, you should do that very soon.
When the ship docks you are bused a short distance to a cruise terminal. There you go through customs and have access to desks where you can book transport, tours or rent a car. I think renting a car with four people and that amount of luggage is not going to work. I also think it will not be that much cheaper than a car and driver. What you might find is a van service which is looking for more passengers to fill up and make it cheaper for everyone. Sometimes these include a tour on the way which does not add much to the cost.

There are vans that will take you to Santiago for the same price as a taxi. This can be arranged at the cruise port. There are people you can book in advance, such as Christian the vanman, christianroymx@hotmail.com or John Gottlieb, www.chiletouring.cl. They are both highly recommended by other travelers.

Travel Tips for Valparaíso

The City

by MEdelmann


The first impression was that Valparaiso looks like a big amphitheater growing up on its 47 hills. But what I specially liked was its mediterranian style, it some italian and spanish flair. It was really a pity that we came here only for lunch (after a visit in Casablanca Valley) because I am very shure that this town offers much more than just a great view from a restaurant .....

Hmmmm, I should give it a try and visit this lovely town again!

Marriage..being a kure&futa

by marsistanbul

Traditional Mapuche Marriage and today..
In the traditional marriage,the man would elope with the woman of his choice.Then with the help of his relatives,both male and female,all would help the new wife settle into her new family.To formalise the union,the groom and his relatives had to make a payment,usually of animals and other goods,to the bride's father.
In the traditional Mapuche family,it was normal for a man who could afford it to have two or more wives,very often sisters.

Today people still talk about the stealing of a bride and payment of the brideprice.These still take place to date,but more a a custom by agreement between the young couple and their families.
Despite the prohibition of the practice by the Christian religion and the Chilean Laws,a few polygamic marriages still exist,especially among older people.
Traditional custom established that a man should look for a wife preferably among the daughters of his mother's brothers or sisters,while marriage with a cousin on the father's side was forbidden.This prohibition is still effect,although the prescription of marriage to a cousin or cousins on the mother's side is declining.

How to get to Valparaiso

by marsistanbul

Valparaiso is located 112 km from Santiago,and it is very easy go there.
By Bus;the journey takes approx. 2 hours from Santiago,there are every 15 or half hour departures and the bus companies have a good service and comfort.The fee almost 6 US$ pp.
Chilean buses run on time and tickets must be purchased ahead of time.
One of the best bus companies are;
turbus www.turbus.com and pullman www.pullman.cl
By car;if you do want to drive a car to Valparaiso,it takes 1.30 minutes,and you should take Ruta 68.An international driver's licence is nor necessary for driving in Chile,but if you have time to take one it makes certain business or customs transactions easier.
The motorway is very well,and during your journey,you'll see some of amazing view of Andes and Veramonte vineyards.
Car renting;They are several int.car-rental companies have offices around Chile,such as Hertz,Budget,Avis,but in addition that you'll find many locals which are cheaper.

The parliament building

by MEdelmann


This building is used by the parliament and was built during the Pinochet-era. It looks very pompous, but this kind of architecture is not my taste ...

But it seems that Mr. Pinochet like this kind of architecture?? I read that he let build some more buildings like that ...

However I shot this picture out from the bus and I was really surprised that it became so well ....
