are you going to rent a car for your stay? if so,

www.evenrentacar.com.ar is excellent and will pick you up at the airport.

If not, use a taxi.

If you're going to be all the way out in the Llao Llao area, you will probably want to rent a car.

Iam staying in the LlaoLlao area this week and I completely agree with everyone to rent a car. We rented from www.evenrentacar.com.ar as did Karmalaw(BTW, they still love you down here) and couldn't be more delighted with the customer service(Martin and Alec) and quality of the car.

The LlaoLlao is so lovely and one of the finest areas to stay. The views are spectacular. Driving is not difficult and you are far enough away from the BA drivers to make it enjoyable. There are so many beautiful day drives in the area that it would be a mistake to miss them by not renting a car.

Have a nice week here. You have picked a paradise.

Enjoy!!!

We did end up renting a car and were very happy we did. We rented from Even Rentals as well and were amazed at the service Martin gave us. Jamie at Casita Llao Llao set it up for us.

io'm glad you are having such a good time in the area. We loved it as well.

Hi Cellis,

We are at Casita LlaoLlao(www.barilochehouse.com) this week. Wow!!! What a beautiful peace of property. I want to take the view back to Buenos Aires with me. Shanie and Jamie are delightful hosts and how lucky they are to have such a beautiful place to live. Iam so happy that we picked this area to stay. It doesn't get much better than this.

Iam sitting in your chair typing this right now with the lake looming in front of me.

Saludos!!!

Santiago is a nice city, but not as exciting as Buenos Aires. It,always reminds me of Los Angeles with the mountains in the background(and the smog). I like the area of Las Condes/Providenica for staying. There are some delightful apart/hotels in that neighborhood(Santa Magdalena apartments). You have got a great selection of restaurants and other services in this area. Also, it is very safe and the metro runs right through there.

Be sure to take the cable and the funiculars up to the mountain to see the Madonna. The Plaza Italia is nice with the Darwin jardins and the Plaza de Armas downtown square is quite impressive. The PreColombian museum is vey good.

They have some nice wine tours from the city, but I think that Mendoza is better IMO.

Have a nice trip. Chile is a lovely country and the people are delightful.

Enjoy!!

Thank you. We are staying at Marilu's B&B in Providencia near the Salvador Metro station. We will use your helpful tips on our travels.

We were in Bariloche early April 2008. There is a bus every 20 minutes from the local bus terminus (really a collection of bus stops together). Took it to Llao Llao and return, less than 3 pesos return if my memory sereves me correctly. The bus turns in the Llao Llao resort property (end of the line).
