    Flights out of Santiago

    In looking at multi city flights for a trip next year, it seems that with very few exceptions departing out of Santiago adds significantly to the price. Can anyone suggest an airline that flies to Western Canada that also would include Santiago? I know there are cheap flight to Madrid, but...

    Advice on Finisterre

    We will complete our first Camino Frances in early November in SdC. We'll be staying in Santiago for a few days afterward and would like to take the bus out to Finisterre. In looking at transport, it seems the bus ride will take anywhere between 1.5 and 2.5 hours meaning we will spend...

    Taxis from the Cathedral in Santiago to the airport late in the day

    How difficult is it to get a taxi, mid week, from the Cathedral in Santiago to (or near) the airport? I'm actually staying 12K from the Cathedral with a very early flight in the morning. I'm not excited about the prospects of adding another 12k to my 26k day into Santiago. Thanks!

    Santiago taxi rates going up soon.

    Today, I read in El Correo Gallego that a taxi rate increase for Santiago has been approved. This is likely a consequence of general price inflation. According to the article, no implementation date is yet set. Here is the link...

    Old Bus station - still used?

    I have just watched a short film (Sept 2021) on You Tube conducted by a very smart gentleman about the new bus station in Santiago. Is the old bus station still situated at Plaza de Camilo Diaz at the end of Rua de Anxo Casal? The bus from the airport dropped you here and you could catch a bus...

    Santiago to London

    Looking at flight options from Santiago to London around 4th July. Flights earlier in the day are really expensive, 330+ Euros. I have looked at other options, flying out of Madrid,..., but the cost is still about the same. Any tips for an inexpensive way home will be appreciated.
