Local Transport

We highly recommend that you have your own transport, however, if you are young and adventurous then you can get from the airport to the house by local taxis and then walk the last 200 yards

If you are staying at refugiofinichico without a car then the best way to get into Santiago is to catch a collectivo taxi at the gates to Santa Sofia. Ask to be dropped off at paradero 14 de Bellavista La Florida (paradero means a stop for a bus or train in Spanish) This is also the biggest shopping mall in Santiago comprising supermarkets, cafes, cinema, bowling complex, shops. You can also park there free of charge. In order to get to the centre, catch any metro from Paradero 14 and go to Plaza de Armas. Then you will be in the heart of the city, close to the main post office, Mercado central, Cerro Santa Lucia (highly recommended), the Alameda Palace etc. The metro is cheap, clean and easy to use and the best way to get around Santiago.
