Santiago - cabanas - transportation

  • I'm gonna be coming in to Santiago on a horrible flight arriving at 3:00am sand leaving at 4:00am.  Fucking worthless Spirit Airlines, but the airfare is nearly free.

    Question
    Has anyone used a cabana for a short stay to simply sleep.  I would want on from 4am or so until late morning.  Would they work well for this purpose and does anyone know where they are in Santiago and what they cost?

    I'd appreciate any details anyone has.

  • I went to Santo Domingo last year and I saw those mini buses and trust me enter at your own risk, I don't know if coming out of Santiago would be any different but it's just a word of caution.  Maybe there are some better ones in Santiago considering I think Santiago is much better than Santo Domingo.

  • You can use the cabanas just for sleep.  They do not care if you are alone or with someone.  I have heard that some business travelers have stayed in a cabana when their flight landed because it was too early to check into their hotel.
    Not sure the rates in Santiago - one of the cabanas I used in Santo Domingo was 895 pesos for four hours, but that was "prime" night hours.  Early morning hours, I have heard that you can ask for a special rate (because they have less business/turnover at that time) - maybe it is the same price for 8 hours or something like that - just ask (if you speak enough spanish to be able to).
    And - I agree about the buses - use a Caribe Tours if you need to - the small mini-buses can be very crowded and uncomfortable - and some might not be safe for a foreigner (not necessarily physically, but more chance of grab n run theft.)

    I don't speak Spanish for shit, so I guess I'll get a translation app for the ipod and laptop or something similar.
    When I mentioned mini-bus I meant Caribe or Metro vehicles, I guess they are a full size bus?
    I guess I need enough Spanish to ask a taxi driver to:
    1) take me to a nearby Cabana
    2) take me to a Metro (Caribe) stop

    An alternative might be to enlist C.E.O.s driver buddy to pick me up at 3:00AM and drop me at BlackBeards where I could crash on the beach or by the pool for a few hours.
      u can make arrangements with blackbeards to do a late night check in.  the security guard will let you in and give you your room key

    or, i am sure comus will let you crash in his bed with him.   rotflmao  :fuckbanana: :fuckbanana: :fuckbanana:   am sure he would get up at 5am and let you in the gate too.  lol

    go for getting ceo's boy to pick u up and having bb arrange a 5am check in

    Google Translate has been a big help for me many times.  I have it on the phone as an app (and obviously the computer on internet also).

    I used Google Translate when I was there in 2009.  Problem is you need an internet connection - I likely wouldn't have one when talking to a cab driver.  Also, I used Google Translate when trying to exchange messages with a couple DR gals, and running there messages through it frequently came out as gobbledegook.  I tried converting an English sentence to Spanish and the translated text back through to English, and it was pretty unintelligible.  So I question how effective it is.

    I am trying to buy and load 'Spanish Offline Translator' from Lonely Planet onto my Ipod.  Maybe that will work out.
      let us know how that works out spaz

      just get things set up solid on flight number, time of arrival, tell your boy how goofy mtb looks and that he will be the only gringo skipping across the parking lot in a thong singing "yippe-yay cowpatty".

    that should be enough for mtb and your boy to hookup for a ride ;D

  • Using a cabana is a great idea they cost 500 pesos for 4 hours and are as nice as most 5 star hotels.  If you play your cards right I am sure they could arrange company for you as well.  Carib tours and Metro bus both have service in Santiago and are excellent.  Freezing air and movie on some buses.  For 8 bucks to Sosua.  I have used the Gua Guas and they are fine.  They take you to the middle of the cities they travel to.  The price is very low but they get you to where you want to go.  I little spanish would help.  I never pay for expensive cab rides.  My last trip I went from Sosua to San Francisco.  I used carib tours to Santiago 250 pesos. Cab to Gua Gua 200 pesos , Gua Gua 100 pesos to Sanfrancisco . Moto Couchi to front door of chicas house 50 pesos.

    2) I thought I'd try using the scheduled mini-bus routes to get to BBs - does anyone know how/where to catch them and if they are a pleasant trip or a nightmare?

    I'd appreciate any details anyone has.

  • I;ve stayed in sosua and traveled alot to caberete  in those mini buses or gua gauas  sure they look unsafe but I used them for about a month and I never had a problem   and they are dirt cheap for short hauls  ;i;d not recommend them for anything over 20 klms  ; and yes  the caribe buses are very nice ; I took one from sosua to santiago  to visit friends ;they  are very inexpensive
