    • Day tour to San Alfonso del Mar

      Algarrobo Dec 15, 2014 at 12:52 AM

      We will be visiting Valparaiso, and want to see if we can spend half a day traveling to Algarrobo just to see San Alfonso del Mar's biggest pool in the world, from the outside (I know we are not allowed in). Anybody knows where does the bus stop in Algarrobo (got an address?) will we be able to walk to San Alfonso del Mar? We can take a bus or taxi, but the worry is getting back to the bus station (to take a bus back to Valpo).

      Any insight will be greatly appreciated

      bus from Santiago to Mendoza

      Chile Dec 4, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      hi

      I will leave Santiago de Chile with a bus from Andesmar to Mendoza in January 2015.
      From which Terminal do they leave?

      And on the website of Andesmar they talk about the Output Habilitation Rate for entering Argentina.
      Does this apply for me? I have Dutch nationality.

      I think it is very strange that I can buy a bus ticket on the website of Andesmar and that they don't give vital information. They don't respond on my email as well.

      Thanks

      Tobias

    • Lake Crossing

      by janetlee Online Now May 8, 2010 at 6:47 PM

      I read from other VT members about lake crossing from Puerto Varas to Bariloche. It seems that it is worthwhile to take that trip. We will be going to the Lake District of Chile in next April. Will there be lake crossing? Will be boat/cruise service be closed during that time of the year?

      Fishing in Puerto Varas

      by reynes Online Now Jan 9, 2008 at 1:31 PM

      Can anyone give some info about fly fishing in the Puerto Varas area. Is it possible to do it without a guide? Perhaps just rent a car and drive to the rivers? Or can someone recommend an inexpensive fishing guide. We really only need to be taken to the fishing location and picked up at the end of the day..

      Thanks!

    • Lake Region, Torres Del Paine

      by zombies Online Now Mar 11, 2005 at 12:13 PM

      Can someone please suggest the best itinerary based from Puerto Montt (I'll be flying into Puerto Montt from Santiago) and involving any combination of day
      trips (boat, car, bus) to puerto varas, osorno,
      petrohue, chiloe, puella through the lagos (I can't go to Bariloche,
      because I don't have an argentine visa; unless I can get an argentine visa at
      the border).

      I have around 3-4 days to spend around Puerto Montt, after which I
      want to fly to Punta Arenas (don't want to risk taking the Navimag,
      because it looks like the weather is dicy) and visit the Torres Del
      Paine for another 4-5 days (Is it possible to include trips to the bernardo and
      serrano, and the isla magalleno?). I'll be flying back to Santiago
      from Punta Arenas. I can rent a car or so, can spend around3000 for 2 people excluding flights (the lesser the better :)

      Thanks very much for your help.

      Cheers 'n Regards,
      Ganesh.
