As indicated in its name, the city has quite a busy port, where ships leave for the southernmost areas of Chile, and cruise ships anchor, especially in summer.
TRANSFERS IN PUERTO MONTT
The taxicab is the easiest and most highly recommended way of moving
around in Puerto Montt
. The service is safe and
efficient, and the fares are affordable. Another advantage is that
this way of traveling enables the visitor to reach the more remote
attractions without hassle.
If you are looking for cheaper transport modes for your city trips,
you can opt to travel by city bus or "colectivo
", an oversized
taxi-type vehicle that covers fixed shuttle routes, or if you prefer,
to use the micro-bus services on fixed routes. If your wallet is
fairly limp, these two are good options.
Another possibility is renting a self-driven car in any of the local or international dealerships operating in the Los Lagos region capital. Requirements are not complicated. Once behind the wheel, remember speed limits are 50 km/hour in town and 100 km/hour on the highway.
