Puerto Varas

Getting Here and Around

Puerto Varas is only about a 20-minute drive from the center of nearby Puerto Montt, making it a virtual suburb of that large city. You can get to the Puerto Montt airport via a 40-minute drive south on Ruta 5. Most of the bus lines that serve Puerto Montt make obligatory stops in Puerto Varas on their way north or south. Around town, there are numerous taxis and several minivan buses, which have various stops, the most prominent one on Avenida Salvador near the corner of Calle Santa Rosa. Both taxis and buses can take you to countryside locations such as Ensenada and Puerto Montt for a minimal cost. You can cross to Argentina via bus or boat.
