Santiago
Santiago is a colorful and sophisticated city that percolates with all manner of activity. Nearly a third of the country's population lives Santiago, and nearly every visitor to Chile spends some time here. This is of course the gateway to the Chilean Andes and its natural wonders, the southernmost regions of South America and the mysteries of Antarctica , but Santiago is a scenic and exhilarating destination in its own right, where international vacationers, business professionals, and the local population create a diverse blend, that has helped to make Santiago a truly cosmopolitan city.

A city of barrios, each with its own flavor, Santiago is blessed with a rich local cuisine, and is situated in Chile's renowned wine growing region, so tours of the vineyards here are a very popular activity amongst visitors. Whether sampling a frosty belinda at a local café, dining at one of the many trendy international restaurants, enjoying Santiago's electrifying nightlife, shopping in its boutiques and markets or taking in the churches, museums, and well preserved colonial architecture along the Alameda, this is a city that will not disappoint.

Santiago boasts an array of 4 and 5 star hotels, as well as more modest boutique, bed and breakfast style properties scattered around some of the older and quieter neighborhoods, and day trips can be arranged to visit some of the country's best vineyards, or tour Santiago's wealth of cultural and historical landmarks.

If you are a skier, and are lucky enough to be here in the winter months (June-September) Valle Nevado's 300 skiable acres are just an hour's drive, or head for Portillo, Chile's premiere ski resort and be the envy of your skier friends back home.

So whether you are headed from here to the splendor of Patagonia, the wine region, or the majesty of Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires is a city that will remain in your memory long after the last tango has ended.
