Should I visit Santiago?

by cafetran

Hello all,
I'm planning to visit Peru, Brazil & Buenos Aires in three weeks+.
Potentially, I might be able to pass by Santiago for two days since my flight route might allow me to do a stop over.

I'm wondering the following things:
1. Should I spend sometime in Santiago? What can I do in two days to get to know the place?

2. Can I find good budget accommodation? How much does it usually cost per night for a private room in a hostal for example.

3. I don't have to stay in Santiago if there's a nicer city or village accessible within an hour bus away. Please make any suggestions you can to help me decide.

Thank you so much.
Cheers,
cafetran

Re: Should I visit Santiago?

If you would be flying into the airport in Santiago, then I would say no if you are Canadian. You would pay a reciprocity fee (I think it is still US$132 but may have risen) which doesn't seem worth it for 2 days.
If you are flying into another Chilean airport or coming in by land and don't have to pay the fee, then yes, Santiago is a nice contrast to the other places you will be. Doing a bit of research into what you personally like to do and what is available is rewarded in a visit to Santiago as, aside from the city itself, there are interesting places on the coast or a visit into the mountains within easy reach (under 2 hours).
There are plenty of hostals, some with private rooms as well as shared accommodation.

Thank you for the tip. That's crazy. How come the airport fee is so high for Canadian. It's probably won't be worth it for a day or two.

It is a reciprocity fee. It is the same amount Canada charges Chileans to apply for a visa. If rejected they lose the money but you simply pay on entry. So you get a better deal.

Travel Tips for Santiago

The old and the new

by TheWanderingCamel



This photo sums up Santiago for me - the gracious and elaborate old colonial-era cathedral mirrored in the sparkling glass of a modern office building across the street - a reflection on the city itself - vibrant and forward looking but with a fascinating, complicated history.

Packing for multi climate travel in South America

by kiwigal_1

In Chile the "rainy season" is winter which is June - August traditionally. There may be some showers in Santiago in other months and rainfall may occur in other parts of Chile (it is a long country so climate can vary). If travellers are going to various countries in South America and the question is more on what to pack than what is the weather then I suggest you bring a mixture of clothing for the various seasons as it seems you will at least need a fleece and light rain jacket and you will certainly need summer clothing also, a couple of pairs of long pants (perhaps with a zip off to shorts) and if you are doing any high altitude trekking then you may also need thermals as it gets very cold especially at night (particularly in Peru & Bolivia)

Buying wines

by jpizquierdo about el mundo del vino

Here you can find people who really know about wine, a very wide spectre of diferent wineryes are displayed in this store. prices are ok, about the same price then a supermarket. and sometimes a very good discount also they ´ll provide a very good packaging for your trip. if money is not a problem, carry with you Cabo de hornos of viña San Pedro, Montes Alpha cabernet Sauvignon, ( both very powerfull wines )

Small, but with great food

by IIGUANA about Boca

Boca restaurant is quite a small one. But the food is great. They don't have a big menu, but what they have is great. There only 10 tables, but it's not always filled with people. Avoid luch time since it might be crowded, but a good quite dinner is just perfect if you want to avoid packed restaurants and junk food Do try the grilled meat with potato tortilla, or try the Easter Island tuna, which is great.
