Hitchhiking out

North towards La Serena, East towards Mendoza (Argentina) or Southeast towards Santiago

Get to metro station Chorillos or near Puente Lusitania (Lusitania Bridge). You can get there obviously by metro or by micros (mini buses) that go towards Quilpue. Go along the main avenue where metro station is located eastward for 500m until you get to a roundabout where motorway begins. Hitch there with a sign. A lot of the traffic will be heading southeast to Santiago by motorways 62 and 5, so you can make a sign "Peaje Llay Llay", which is a huge toll plaza located on the Panamerican Higway 5, twenty km south from La Calera. From there you can hitch either south to Santiago, east to San Felipe, Los Andes and Mendoza or north to La Serena. If you go to Santiago you can just make a sign with this name and you will get there either by the route mentioned above or by Ruta 60CH and Ruta 68.
