Getting Here and Around in Valparaíso
Getting Here and Around
By car from Santiago, take Ruta 68 west through the coastal mountains and the Casablanca valley as far as you can go, until the road descends into Valparaíso's Avenida Argentina, on the city's eastern edge. If you don't have a car, Tur-Bus, Pullman, and Condor buses leave several times an hour for Valparaíso and Viña del Mar from Santiago. Tur-Bus and Pullman both leave from Terminal Alameda (Metro Universidad de Santiago) while Condor and Sol del Pacífico use Terminal Santaigo (Metro Estación Central) or alternatively you can save yourself a crawl through Santiago by catching a bus from Metro Pajaritos on the city's western edge. If you're using Valparaíso as your hub, you can use Pullman Bus to get to most coastal towns south of the city. Tur-Bus heads north to Cachagua, Zapallar, Papudo, and other towns. Sol del Pacífico also runs buses to the northern beaches. Valparaíso has two information booths: one at Muelle Prat that is supposedly open daily 10–2 and 3–6 (although in real life the hours vary wildly).
