Getting around

The sights in compact Castro are easily accessible by foot (except the Modern Art Museum), and part of the town’s charm is in just that: walking. If weather or other circumstances require it, the area around the plaza is the place for picking up a bus or taxi—northbound on San Martín, or southbound on O’Higgins. Buses in town are under $1; taxis within town are generally in the $1 to $2 range.

Castro also has a car rental agency, Salfa Sur (Gabriela Mistral 499, Tel: 56-65-630414,, though public transit abounds in the area. The independence gained from having your own vehicle won’t come cheap—rates start at $33 a day for a two-door hatchback, and increase to $67 for a pick-up truck. You must have a credit card, your passport, driver’s license, and be over 21 to rent a car.
