Valpo to Vina del Mar .... with issues
Feb 2020
I've given it a very good for service, reliability (train goes every 15 minutes), train is clean, 400 pesos pp one-way. It follows the coastline and is a pretty trip. Stops are Puerto, Bella Vista, Francia, Baron, Portales, Recreo...then we got off at Miramar (the stop before Vina Del Mar) to explore. That said, the other side of the rating is BEWARE. Our hotel had given us a card to top up which we did at Puerto station upon arrival. All went well. On the return trip however, the card let me through and wouldn't let hubby through. The ladies in the ticket box said not enough money on card. But there was, as it gives the amount left as you pass thru. They wanted 2,000 more from my husband. We waved around our receipt but they wouldn't look at it. They all said "No English" with big smirks on their faces. We called over a supervisor who looked like a deer in the headlights, so I called out for a local who spoke English. I showed a lovely business man our receipt from this morning (proving we had put more money on the card than required ). He spoke with the women, who suddenly looked as if they had been caught out in a scam, back peddled and waved my husband through. Watch out for this. Hold onto your receipt as proof of payment. All part of the rich tapestry of travelling!!!

Stealing money from tourists
Feb 2020
The staff behind the counter were incredibly rude and unhelpful and ended up stealing money from us as we had trouble getting out metro card to work. Something that should of cost 2700 pesos (2000 for card from machine + 700 for one way to Vina del mar) cost 7000. The man behind the counter was useless and asked for 2000 pesos which we assumed was to put on the metro card we gave him. We waited for him to fix it as he was on the phone and serving other customers. We waiting while he seemed to do nothing so we thought we'd just get another metro card from the machine as it was taking a ridiculous amount of time he asks for it and we give it to him hoping he'd fix it for us, he asks for 700 more pesos all the while on the phone. I don't think the phone call was even work related he was just talking to a friend. He just pretended I never gave him 2000 pesos beforehand and asked for 700. It's not a lot of money but is ridiculous for a one way 5 minute trip and that a metro employee was taking advantage of non-spanish speaking tourists. Be careful and stand your ground.

We used the metro to go from Valparaíso to Viña Del Mar. The trains run every ten minutes and are clean and safe. You need to buy a metro card from the station office. One will do for all your party you just keep passing it back. The card can then be topped up with whatever cash you need for your journeys. There are plenty stops from Peurto to Limanche.

A great way to travel
Dec 2019 • Couples
The train service runs every 12 minutes in each direction.

Get one of their smart cards, easily recharged by cash/credit cards at the kiosks and self service machines at the stations.

Great value. A single from Viña Del Mar to Valpo is approx £0.70p / 1USD$.

Reliable and also gives good views around the coast.

Easy to Use, Clean, Safe and Cheap - Great Way to Visit Vina del Mar From Valparaiso
Sep 2019
On our advance research of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, we never learned of the metro connecting the two cities. But once we arrived and saw it first hand, we asked ourselves why? The ride takes about 15 minutes, let's you off in the middle of Vina del Mar (we exited at Miramar), and it cost less than $2/person, round trip! You need a metro card to use. We asked our hotel and the front desk let us use one of theirs (which we were able to load with pesos for our use). What a quick and easy way to visit the two cities. Heartily recommend.

This overground metro is quick and very efficient. A trip from Valparaiso to Vina del Mar takes a few minutes and provides a view of the Pacific.
