I am visiting Chile next Dec and want to spend a few days in the wine country. What is the best way to get out to Santa Cruz from Santiago.?
There are three possibilities, hire a car, take the bus, take the train and bus. the first has the advantage that it makes it easy to get to the wineries once you are in Santa Cruz.
Thankyou. I would rather not drive to Santa Cruz. Is there a direct bus and do you know how frequently they run. Is the train easier?
I don`t recommend you the Train, becase is Insecure in the frequency. The most ideal is the bus trip, santiago has a a lot buses to Santa Cruz, is easy, ship and fast. It`s possible to buy a round trip ticket.
thank you for your help. I am now considering driving, but was told it wasn't very safe. What do you think? My other possibility was to hire a private car and driver. Do you know a reliable firm and do you know the approximate cost?
Driving in Chile is no more dangerous than anywhere else. The highways are excellent.
