Discovered by Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia in 1541, Santiago has since become a major South American city that offers first-class hotels and restaurants and access to the latest technology and services. It is located in central Chile, surrounded by snow-capped Andes mountains to the east and the Chilean Coastal Range to the west.
It is a modern, clean and bustling city but still offers a colonial atmosphere and plenty of tradition in its architecture and city plazas. You'll find everything from small cafés with WiFi, exclusive boutiques, great bookstores and fine handicrafts to big malls and long shopping strips that offer all of the top brands. This metropolis, which is home to over six million people, offers hundreds of options for every budget or interest and activities that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
The Central Valley is located between the Coastal Range and Andes and has an extension of 500 kilometres / 310 miles from north to south and it has many exciting places worth visiting.
Within the city itself there are many neighbourhoods to explore and stay. Districts such as Providencia, Bellavista, Las Condes and Vitacura offer a dazzling array of businesses, shops and restaurants as well as a bustling nightlife.
On the seaside there are numerous attractive cities and charming towns such as Viña del Mar with its precious gardens and the historical port city of Valparaiso.The nearby La Campana National Park is ideal for hiking and offers beautiful and interesting trails.
The central region is also known for its wine valleys, some of the most famous vineyards are located between Santiago and Talca and are open to the public - some of the wineries offer lodging in their beautiful colonial guesthouses and hotels.
You can visit Santiago all year round. In summer (Nov - Feb) temperatures can reach 28°C. While temperatures are much cooler in winter.
