About the City

Santiago, the capital of Chile, is the heart of the nation with almost 6 million inhabitants and one of the most important financial metropolises in Latin America. The city has many aspects in both cultural and architectural forms. Traditional neighborhoods, well-tended mansions and colonial buildings compete with modern office complexes, bold skyscrapers and the modern subway system. You will find huge shopping malls, but also small noisy street markets with native handicrafts.

From Santiago there are numerous outdoor opportunities within an hour, such as Climbing, rafting, bathing in hot springs or trips to several ski areas (June-September). The Pacific coast is also only an hour away. Many Santiaginos use the proximity of nature in the summer (December-February) to escape the noise of the big city for a weekend and go to the mountains or to the beaches.
The Santiaguinos are friendly and helpful people, which makes it very easy for foreigners to make friends. Santiago de Chile is also the location of numerous universities, which has led to a lively international student life in recent decades.
