      Rental cars in Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales, Chile

      Chile Jan 25, 2017 at 8:31 AM

      Can a car be rented at the airport in Punta Arenas and returned in Puerto Natales? Also can a car be rented in Puerto Natales and returned at the airport in Punta Arenas? We want to rent a car for several day to visit Puerto Natales, then take a cruise, returning to Puerto Natales and rent another car there, returning it at the airport at the Punta Arenas airport several days later. Would it be cheaper to keep the car we rent in Punta Arenas while we are on the cruise (3 days)? Any recommendation for a car rental agency, preferably with a US phone number.

      Greetings, I need to work online all day (9:30-3) in La Serena Chile on Monday March 12. I will be coming in on a cruise ship. Are there any verified free wifi spots you can recommend to use my notebook or an Internet Cafe?
      I will need to walk or take a cab so an address would be helpful please.
      Is the free wifi still available at the Mall Plaza La Serena?
      How far is the Mall from the cruise port?
      Thank you very much in advance.

    • Has anyone used MoreTour originating in La Serena

      by fairchaffee Online Now Aug 22, 2011 at 1:17 PM

      We have booked a tour of Elqui Valley with an agency called MoreTour. I cannot read most of their website as it is in Spanish. I have been dealing with the general manager Cristián Clavero Salazar
      General manager
      More Tour
      He is a professional but with very broken English. I have gathered 9 persons to go on this tour. Has anyone has experience with his tours or this company in general. I am worried about the size of his tour buses for this many people. Has anyone been on this tour?

    • Suggestions on Chile

      by Lou_ Online Now Dec 1, 2005 at 10:12 AM

      Hello

      I have 5 days in Chile to spend chilling out in march 2006. Looking at going up to La Serena for a few days and visiting Vina and Valpo.

      I am quite keen to hire a car and take things as they come. Would this be feasible in March to get accommodation? Bearing in mind my spanish is very very basic....

      Any help would be appreciated

      Cheers

      Louisa
