Travel from Punta Arenas to Torres del Paine

I will arriving in Punta Arenas mid afternoon in a few weeks. I have a full day and an half before I need to start my hike at the entrance of the park. How reliable is the transportation from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natalas, and then to Torres del Paine? Do I bus reservations ahead of time? Or are there ample buses each day?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Will you be in PA or Puerto Natales? Most lodging in PN will book the bus to the park for you, but if you cannot do that, it is a good idea to book it as soon as you arrive. You should be able to do that in PA. In a few weeks it will be very busy.

While in Punta Arenas, be sure to book a trip to Isla Magdalena - penguins are unforgettable. Bus is regular and reliable to Puerto Natales. Your Hostel should be able to book it for you.
