Arrival to Pichilemu
For students flying into Chile to attend the language school in Pichilemu, it is necessary to fly into Santiago de Chile and then travel by bus or car to the school. Santiago’s airport, Aeropuerto Internacional Arturo Merino Benítez (SCL), caters to both national and international flights. It is suggested to either take a blue airport shuttle or a certified taxi to the main bus Terminal Alameda for a large coach-style bus to Pichilemu.
If travelling from Santiago de Chile, it is best to leave from the main Terminal Alameda using the Melipilla bus route. This is the shortest and most direct route, taking approximately 3.5 hours. From San Fernando, Chile it takes approximately 2 hours travel time. There are several bus companies to choose from, but we recommend Nilahue or Pullman del Sur, both of whom travel to Pichilemu’s bus terminal.
