The Federico Santa María University (Universidad Santa Maria, USM) is located in Valparaíso, just an hour and a half northwest of Santiago.
How to get to the USM
Bus (from the airport to the Santiago bus station ) + Bus (from the Santiago bus station to Viña del Mar - shuttle from 6.am to 10:30 pm) + Local taxi.
Take the airport bus towards Santiago. The bus stops right outside the airport building (there are two companies: "Centropuerto" is a light blue bus, and "TurBus" is a light green bus, the ticket is paid at the bus; about $ 2.800 CLP); get off the bus at the first stop (about 15-20 min drive), called "Pajaritos" (sounds: Paharitos; ask the driver to drop you there).
"Pajaritos" is a small bus and subway station. The bus station to Viña is on the other side of the building from where you leave the airport bus. Buy a bus ticket to Viña del Mar or Valparaíso at the corresponding ticket office (the best companies are TurBus and Pullman Bus). Note that the tickets include a seat reservation. Depending on the traffic conditions you have to wait up to 30 minutes for your bus. The ticket is about $ 4500 CLP (about 8 USD).
The trip from Pajaritos to Viña takes about 90 minutes. The bus terminal in Viña del Mar is near downtown, and about 1 km from the Hotel San Martin. Taxis are available to get from the bus terminal in Viña del Mar to your hotel or directly to the "Universidad Santa Maria" (USM). The taxi price should be below $ 5.000 CLP. Eventually, at the University site you directly find the workshop from the main entrance "Entrance Placeres" from the street "Avenida Placeres".
