Bus travel is safe and easy in Chile. From Santiago, you can take a “direct” bus to Curarrarehue with Jetsur. If you do not plan to make any stops along the way, we recommend traveling by night on a “Cama” or “Semi-cama” bus for maximum comfort and logistical ease. Go to sleep in Santiago and wake up in paradise! Expect this ride to take about 12 hours. The Jetsur direct bus costs ~ CH$18.000 ($30 USD).
From elsewhere in Chile, you will want to take a bus to Pucon and then take a mini-bus to Curarrehue. Pucon-Curarrehue by mini-bus takes about 50 minutes and costs ~CH $1000 ($2.25 USD). If coming from the South, we are 358 km (about 6 hours) to the northeast of Puerto Montt, Chile.
We can arrange a pick up in Curarrehue.
If traveling from Argentina, you can take any bus destined for Pucon or Villarica and hop off in Puesco. Just be sure to tell the people at the ticket counter as well as the bus driver that you will be getting off in “Puesco, Donde Quintun.”
