Puerto Montt
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Nice, if non-descript little town. Good supermarket called "U" near cruise terminal to stock up on wine, chips, coke.

A very nice, relatively clean and safe city to wander around in. Seemed in better shape than either Santiago or Buenos Airies.

Chaotic transfer from ship to city. We took transfer available from Princess, but actually would have been just as good to pay the $30US ransom taxis demand to go to your hotel. As it was, the bus transfer to the Marriott hotel meant that outside the front of the hotel was also chaos trying to get a taxi. Many taxis igored us, or demanded $20US. The police stopped taxis from stopping for us tourists - don't know why. Finally got a taxi who agreed to take us for $4US, since our hotel nearby. But when we arrived at hotel he doubled the price to $8. So all in all we spent $28US between us, and probably took longer than just grabbing a taxi from the port.
