biggest problem that travellers face in Chile is getting from one

PACHAMAMA BY BUS is a transport network specially designed to meet the needs of independent travelers. You can get off the bus at any of the places along the route and catch another bus a few days later. You will have the freedom to do your own thing and spend as much time as you like at places along the route.
__Exclusive Stops: Intercity buses go from town to town using the most direct and boring routes, but we'll take you to places that only we and the locals know about. We 'll stop at the best spots where you can leave the bus and discover the best of Chile for yourself, away from the "gringo trail".
__Accommodation: somewhere to stay in the overnight stops will be your responsibility. Nevertheless, the bus will stop in several hostels in every place as an extra service. If one particular place of interest doesn't provide adequate accommodation, we will provide you the basic camping and cooking equipment for free!!!
__About the guides : We are not into tour services, but all of our guides speak English and Spanish. They will provide you with as much, or as little, help as you require.
__Full flexibility : Your travel pass allows you to start and finish your trip wherever you want, with no time limit to complete the chosen route.
__About the buses : Our buses seat up to 17 people, with enough room for all your bags. Let us know what you have with you, when you make your booking.
__How to book: Contact us at least 48 hours before your departure to book your seat on the bus. You only need to phone our office in Santiago or visit us in Agustinas 2113 to get the ticket.
If you decide to change a booking please call at our office so that we can make the place available to someone else.
