What is the safe and reasonable way for 4 people to go from airport to Holiday Inn Express
At Av. Vitacura 2929. Santiago, Chile? Price
looking for a private Transport on 21.12.2013 from Airport to Valparaiso. Maybe to get with some other tourists together ..., We are on a cruise with celebrity on 22.12.2013.
What are the cost for 2 Persons?
Might spend 2 or 3 weeks in Santiago while husband is on business trip, so we will have our two kids with us, 5 and 2 at the time. The plan is I would take the kids around to the zoo, parks, plazas during the day, going on the subway. Just wondering if the subway is safe, as well as the areas around the park, museums for walking, during the day for a woman alone with two kids? We are extremely well traveled and are Latin, so we will blend in. Won't take any flashy jewelry, etc.
Researching airport transfers for single female traveller arriving in Santiago airport at 11.00pm. Have found Taxi service called 'Go Airport' that seems to be recently new in South America. Has anybody had any experiences with them - can't find any reviews about them
Do any of you know a good guide in Santiago or Valparaiso? All this is still tentative and may not even happen, but I am helping plan a South American cruise from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires for a group of senior citizens next February. We would need a guide for a day in Santiago, a day--or partial day--in Valparaiso and possibly transportation from a Santiago hotel to the port in Valparaiso. I don't have a feel for the number of passengers yet--probably between 4 and a dozen..
NOTE: I do know about the bus from the airport to the port, but It would be like herding cats to get them all on it.
Are there any good hotels in Valparaiso? I was considering spending a night there, but most of the hotels seem to be small and lack elevators. That would work fine for me, but not for some of our group.
Wife and I are traveling to Chile for 8 to 10 days. We want to spend some time in Valparaiso and Santiago. For reference our last vacations were panama Costa Rica and Germany/Czech/Austria. We like a variety of everything leaning more towards natural settings (beaches/waterfalls). All our travel Once we have arrived (flight)will be done by public transportation or taxis. Should we attempt to go to the lake region as well. Or would we be spreading ourselves too thin? We want to see as much as possible but don't want to be exhausted at the same time. Thank you in advance.

wondering is there anything that makes my Christmas special in Santiago?

Hello all. A few questions. I'm planning a two week trip to Santiago in spring of 2013. Will local banks exchange US dollars for pesos at a fair rate? If not, what would be your suggestions? I will also bring credit cards, but prefer to pay Efectivo. The guide books tell me that some hotels will not charge the 19% tax when paying in US dollars. Is this generally true? Are US dollars widely accepted?
I'm renting a car and will be driving to the coast and to see Valparaiso/Vina del Mar area in addition to Santiago. How would you rate driving/parking difficulty in these cities? My scale would rate Chicago - easy, Madrid - difficult, Mexico City - very difficult, Rome - almost impossible.
Thanks a lot for any advice you might provide. I have heard great things about Chile and want to see it for myself.
Can anybody describe - step by step - how to withdraw money from CAJERO AUTOMATICO, please? My Spanish isn´t so good and last time I lost my credit card, because of I used the wrong name of the account. I have VISA and MC both debit and credit cards . Thanks a lot for your help.
I will be for 4 days in the city.
Suggestions for day trips?
I will be able to hire a car...
I require shuttle transportation from Valparaiso Ferry Terminal to RQ Central Suites in Santiago. Can someone provide me with name and e-mail address of a shuttle bus company and cost?
I would love an idea of what I can do in Santiago in a day. Actually I have a night available (Monday afternoon and night) then Thursday all day and Friday until 4pm. An itinerary would be great as it will be my first day in the city. I am going for a work conference and playing with the free time to see around the city. I will be staying about 4 blocks from "Palacio de la Moneda" on huerfanos street.
Your suggestions will be very welcomed!!!!
I am flying into Santiago and land at 11pm on Saturday night. I fly out from Lima at 7am on Saturday two weeks later. I was wondering if people had suggestions about how I should go about my itinerary? Here is a list of things I want to do:
-Climb Machu Picchu
-Party in Santiago
-At least one good hike outside of Machu Picchu
-Eat Great Food and drink local beer/wine
Want to do:
-See Patagonia, if only for a day
-Waterfalls if there are any good ones
We are on a budget, but not too much around1000 for whole trip (including porters/fees for climb). Please tell me if this is realistic? I've looked up hostels and it looks like that will run about15/day. And I'm assuming20/day for food and drink is sufficient? That leaves up to35 for travel (flights, trains, buses) and side stuff (climb, souvenirs). If anyone could shed some light it would be so much appreciated. As it stands, it is me and a good friend from college going, 2 24 year old males. We would like to make sure 2-3 nights we get decent sleep, but can trek through and deal with it being a fast-paced trip. Also if any trains/buses are longer than 6 hours (unless it is a comfortable overnight bus/train), we would rather just fly and will up our budget.
I'm a senior travelling alone with 2 suitcases. I'll arrive in the Int. Airport Jan 24 morning and want to take a bus to Concepcion, where family will meet me. I know there are several bus lines that go from Santiago. Which of them has a bus Terminal that's more convenient to get to from the Int. Airport? Can bus tickets be bought a couple of hours before departure?
What is the best and fastest public transportation from Santiago Airport to the Valparaiso Cruise Terminal?
I will be staying 1 night at Santiago hotel in February after my cruise. Any ideas of nice tours starting at Cruise terminal fro 1 day. And also the cheapest company ( taxi or transfer) from the hotel to airport. Many thanks
First off, thank you all so much for the great input you all offered regarding my question about living in Plaza de Armas. It was such a help! For now, I'm kind of moving away from the idea of living there because of a lack of night life in the area.
Like I told you guys in my last post, I am a 21 year old male who will be studying in Santiago next semester- I will be living with a family (per university policy) but I am looking for an apartment where I can stay on the weekends and host parties (if I make any Chilean friends :P )
For that reason, I'm wondering- is there an area that is well regarded with a decent "night life?" What STEREOTYPES and / or STIGMAS are associated with the different areas? I was looking at Providencia, Bellas Artes and Barrio Lastarria- I know the latter two are more "hip" and "bohemian" but would people look down at somebody for living there? From what I've read, it seems like Providencia is an alright area.
I've looked at apartments in Las Condes because that's where my job is located, but it seems as though it would be boring at night and on the weekends- I want to be able to leave my apartment and find things to do. More than anything, I want to fully experience everything that Santiago has to offer.
Sorry for the crazy train of though, but again, thank you all so much for your help!
