Accommodation and Transportation
The city of Santiago is divided in comunas (Municipalities). Recommended comunas to stay during the conference are Santiago and Providencia. Santiago comprises the city center and most of the historical attractions. Providencia, at the east of Santiago, is a more modern suburb with good restaurants and hotels, where part of the business district is located.
From the airport, the alternatives to arrive at your hotel are a transfer service or a taxi. We recommend you to take official services at the airport (Taxi or transfer Oficial at the booth). There is also a bus (called Centro-Puerto, buses are blue) that arrives at the city center in Los Héroes Station, connected to the Metro network.
From Santiago and Providencia is easy to access the conference and school venue by Metro. In Santiago there is an integrated bus+metro fare system by means of a smartcard (tarjeta Bip), which can be purchased at any metro station.
