I have a question regarding transportation from Puerto Varas right now. It seems like they will open the road to the border again tomorrow, I want to go to Bariloche since I have a flight booked from there on the 30th. Can anyone confirm? And the bus to Bariloche from Puerto Varas costs 18,000! To Osorno only 2,000. Maybe its cheaper to go there first and then take another one to Bariloche?

If a third eruption happens it will prolly be cancelled anyway. Does anyone have expierences with…
