Getting to Puerto Varas hotel from Puerto Montt airport

Are the taxis at the airport good for this? How much will it approx cost?

Also, will it be easy to take a taxi from Puerto Varas back to the airport at Puerto Montt?

Thanks

There are transfers run by ETM between the airport and Puerto Varas. I don't know what the current price is but they have a booth at the airport and you can compare them to a taxi. Taxi should be somewhere around US$20. You may be able to buy your return at the same time. If not, any hotel can arrange a taxi for your return to the airport. It takes about 30 mins.

last time I checked, the ETM bus was 1800 pesos from airport to Puerto Montt bus station. That's approximately 4 dollars US.

from the Puerto Montt bus station, you can hop on a little blue urban bus that takes about 25 more minutes to the southern entrance of Puerto Varas (it does a loop through town, then comes out the north entrance en route to the town of Llanquihue...Frutillar, etc)

The little bus costs about 700 pesos or 1.50 USD.

The official taxis were 18.000 pesos or 36 USD. You can usually get a better rate if you're staying a B&B and ask them to quote you a local cab.

in that case, you can expect to pay around 12 to 15 thousand pesos (24 to 30 USD).
