What I the best way to get from Santiago to Valparaiso an how much time should I allot to the trip? Also, how much will it probably cost?
I only have 2-4 days to do this leg of my trip
I took the bus--super cheap & a beautiful view the whole way. A return ticket to La Serena (further than Valparasio) cost me 9 bucks Canadian lol-- sounds like a price for a dumpy bus, bus in fact they are luxury tour buses (new Mercedes buses) with tvs, fully reclining seats & you can even book a room on it if you feel like a splurge.
Because air travel is so expensive within Chile the tour bus line market has become really well developed & it's the way most Chileans travel. Enjoy!! about 7 years ago
You take the metro to Pajaritos station in Santiago and take a bus from there. They leave about every 15-30 minutes, it takes about 2 hours and it costs less than $6usd one way. almost 7 years agoAnswered by Lana via WorldNomads.com
