Travel Tips from people who've been to Puerto Natales
This is one of my favorite cities in the world! I stayed here after I cruzed the Chilian Fjords for 3 days. You can get the boat headed south from puerto montt and get off in puerto natales or catch it is natales and head north. It is a big backpackers town for people perparing to enter Torres de Paine NP or who have just exited. Eitherway there are some great restrurants in town that has a great liberal vibe about it. People just hanging out in the town square. A lot of hostals that are very friendly and good cyber cafes for connecting to family before you enter the park. I forgot the guide company that I used in the park but we entered on boat instead of via bus. I would strongly recommend you suggest this route to who ever you use as a guide. They will know what you mean.
Puerto Natales is THE base for hikes into Torres del Paine. Located in this little charming town is a hostel called 'Erratic Rock'. This place is run by very knowledgeble peope, who can provide you with a free breefing every day. The information given is very useful, you can meet up with other hikers here and you can rent anything you need in this same spot.
Torres del Paine: A very expensive place/park!
Be carefull at the Miladon - they don't tell you before there is a separate entrance fee to pay - no they tell it to you afterwards and a very high fee! Our group just refused to pay, because they did not write anything about a fee anywhere and did not tell about it before we entered.
