Enough Time TDP to Punta Arenas

Hello, we will be leaving TDP early on January 25 after spending 5 nights in the park. We then have to drop off our rental in Puerto Natales. Do we have time to catch a bus to Punta Arenas to make a 4:20 flight to Cohaique? If not, we may have to cut our TDP time as there is only a Sunday flight to Cohaique by Sky. Thanks.

You will need 2 hours from Laguna Amarga to Puerto Natales, more if you are driving from deeper in the park. Then you need whatever time it might take to return the rental car, and it is difficult to know how long this might take. This may take longer on a weekend. From Puerto Natales to Punta Arenas is another 3 hours by bus.

Since you won't have enough free time on the day you leave to do much, why not leave the evening before, since you can choose the time with your own car, spend the night in Puerto Natales after returning the car and get a morning bus to Punta Arenas?
