I noticed a lot of tour companies advertise day trips to Isla Negra and Pomaire from Santiago. Is it possible for us to do something like this on our own using public transportation from Valparaiso? I see that the Pullman bus goes from Valparaiso to Isla Negra, but is there anything that goes to Pomaire?
Any other suggestions for day trips from Valparaiso that can be done with public transportation? We are already planning to spend some time in the town of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar.
I am going to be in Vina del Mar and would like to visit San Alfonso del Mar. I can't find a bus that goes between the two cities. Is there one? Or what routes do I need to take?
Also, do you have to stay at San Alfonso del Mar to swim there? Can you just get a day pass to swim?
Thanks so much!
Happy New Year :)

I'm looking for information on this beach. It seems beautiful, but I've heard that it's closed. Can you access it? How far is it by car from Valparaiso and/or Santiago? Thanks!
We arrive on a cruise ship at Valparaiso on Sunday 30th March and would like to take a sightseeing tour of Santiago and return to Santiago Airport for return flight to London leaving at l8.45 pm. We are two persons and are happy to share the tour. English language would be preferable, if possible.
We will be in Valparaiso - Santiago for one day. I know, I know. Not much but we have to take what we can get.
We are cruising into port on the Queen Mary 2 on Jan 25th . We will be in port from from about 7am until 7 pm and are looking for suggestions on how best to spend the day.
We are looking for someone to pick us up and show us Valpariso and Santiago. A more real vist and not only the usual tour groups tour sites. The kind of tour we would give to someone coming to San Francisco. Places to eat, walk, sit and watch, etc. We could pay for a car and driver, tour guide, civilian or whatever.... (we are in our 50's very active and well traveled)
Any suggestions would be welcome.

We will be on a cruise that begins in Valparaiso on January 11, 2007. We fly in to Santiago and were wondering if it is better to stay in Santiago one night and tour the city some, then take a transfer tour to Valparaiso the next day to board the ship or would it be better to just get of the plane, tour Santiago and then transfer to Valparaiso and spend the night and get on the ship the next day? We will have had a 9 hour flight that lands in Santiago about 9:00 am. The ship leaves Jan 11 at 5:00 pm.
Thanks for your help and thoughts
