Travelling in the Andes

Chile and Argentina are emerging economies, but all the amenities of an industrialized country are easily foundl. Prices tend to be somewhat lower than in the U.S. But be forewarned that Chile and Argentina is not dirt cheap.

Many options are available for travelling within Chile. To get to ski areas one can either rent a car or go up in a passenger van for a modest price. There are many car rental agents at the airport in Santiago, in Santiago, and in all major Chilean cities. The ski area offices (tel. numbers are provided in the area descriptions in this guide) can provide information on passenger van service. A roundtrip door to door service costs about U.S.$ 15 from Santiago to La Parva. Similar services are available in other Andean resort regions.

Passenger bus service in Chile and Argentina is cheap, reliable and of excellent quality. $30 buys a sleeper seat (like a first class airplane seat) for a 15 hour trip.

Plane service is available throughout the countries.

More thorough information can be found in any number of the excellent guidebooks.
