- HOW TO GET?
For tourists from abroad, the starting point is the international airport Comodoro Arturo Benítez. From there, you can get transportation services to Viña del Mar or Valparaíso - it is advisable to schedule your departure a few days in advance in, for example, Rutas Chile or Transfer Ruta 68-. Entrances to both cities are located on Route 68.
Both cities are connected by a metro line with twenty stations, which pass from localities in the interior of the Region, through the center of the garden city and to the port. To make use of this transport, it is necessary to have the Metro Valparaíso card. More information at www.metro-valparaiso.cl
Also, there are different urban public transportation lines, buses that run the streets of Viña del Mar and Valparaiso. These reach more specific places than the Metro, so they are a good complement to the previous one. Among these transportation lines are also trolleybuses, typical vehicles of Valparaíso.

- TRANSPORT TO VALPARAISO AND VIÑA DEL MAR
The recommended route via bus is to take a bus transfer from the airport to the bus terminal call “Pajaritos” (approximately a 25 minute ride) and then to buy a bus ticket to Valparaíso or Viña del Mar (the trip will take about 1 hour and 20 minutes). There are many bus lines, but we recommend Condor Bus, Pullman Bus or Tur Bus. Tickets on these busses cost around 5 – 15 USD. (Please note bus lines will only accept Chilean pesos but you can pay with credit card).
It is also possible to make a direct bus transfer from the airport to your accommodation. This option is more expensive. It can vary but should be around 150USD.
We do not recommend a taxi to Valparaíso or Viña del Mar, as it will be very expensive. However, if you do decide to take this option, we advise you to take a taxi from inside the airport and not from outside the airport building.
