Santiago

Santiago is a thriving and cosmopolitan capital city overlooked by towering, snowy volcanoes. Culinary delights, bustling markets and trendy neighbourhoods dotted with stylish hotels make Santiago a good place from which to begin exploring this country.
It is estimated 40% of the population of Chile lives in Santiago. It is busy, and it is fun. There is lots of life here, to be soaked up at your leisure. This is a great South America Family Holiday destination and start to your trip.

What to do in Santiago


One of the great ways to soak it in is from above; head up the cable car to get panoramic views of the city from a lovely park. You can also visit a small colonial centre here and wonder around the bohemian and arty neighbourhood of the Bellavista district; you should always take a pit stop in one of the many local cafes for a strong expresso and fresh empanadas.

Santiago is a good base after your flight, but as a destination it is eclipsed by the dramatic and varied great outdoors of wild Chile beyond.
