Lockers at SCL

by HarmoniousBotch

Are there lockers to store luggage for a few hours at the international terminal at SCL? And, if so, how big are they?
Thanks,
HB

PS: I´ll be there on Wed the 10th, so if you know, please post by noon Argentina time. ( 7am PST, 10am EST )

Not lockers but a room. You look for Custodia on the arrivals level.

You are American. This is your first visit. You have just a few hours at SCL.

Do you realize that Chile charges a one time $135 (more or less) entrance stamp fee to Americans (and citizens of a few other countries.)? It is good for 5 years, but it might be a lot to pay for just a few hour visit.

Re: Lockers at SCL

by HarmoniousBotch

Thanks, Huentetu. I should have no trouble finding the storage room.

Thanks, Melosh. Actually, we are staying in Santiago for three days. The problem is that our plane leaves at 11:50 pm, so we have to find someplace for the luggage for about 10 hours after hotel check out.


I´ve heard rumor of the 135 dollar entry fee, but we did not pay it. We went from El Calafate to Torres Del Paine and back by car, then Ush to Santiago via Punta Arenas by plane. Nobody asked us for it, nor did they ask anyone else for it that we saw ( and we spent lots of time in lines waiting for petty bureaucrats to shuffle papers and stamp other papers. )
Perhaps you meant Brazil? We did have to pay 130 to get in there.

The fee is apparently not charged at the border, only at the airport.

You should ask your hotel or hostel to keep your bags. It is very rare for there to be charge for this service.

Re: Lockers at SCL

The fee is not charged at land borders. It is only charged at the international airport in Santiago. You pay at desks before passport control and there are signs. The cost is US131 per person, good for the life of the passport. You can pay cash or by credit card. Argentina is implementing the same charge from January 1st but with no details given.

Travel Tips for Santiago

Slang in Chile

by mev1976

I know that most of the countries have local slang but here in Chile there is one common word that most of chilean people use several times per day.
Huevon , it´s not a good word, but we use like part of a conversation in a friendly way or to ofend someone,its very confusing for a traveller to ear us talking using this word for all kind of situations like the sound is very similar to huevo ( egg) .

This word evolved to a verb and we ussually ocuppy to form sentences.
the real meneaning of this word is from huevas (balls) but it´s very common that someone tell you that is from huevo ( egg), but it´s not true.
try to avoid to say this word at least you really speak spanish because maybe you can use it in a wrong way and ofend someone.

If you plan to stay in Chile a long period of time I recomend you to buy this book " How to survey in the chilean jungle" a good guide to understand how chilean talk.

The Monument to the Indigenous People

by globetrott

The Monument to the Indigenous People is quite a strange but interesting sculpture on Plaza de Armas, take a walk around it and take a look at the various strange symbols and details.Especially the backside I did not understand (my 5th photograph) , but maybe that is the sense of, so people start to think...

Metro

by dargains

O metro e o melhor meio de se locomover por Santiago, rápido, barato e seguro e ainda por cima leva você a todos os pontos turísticos da cidade. POr isso na hora de escolher o hotel de preferencia a um perto do Metro.

El Metro ou subterraneo de santiago es lo mejor medio de transporte de Santiago, es rapido, limpio y seguro, y te cheva a todos los locales turisticos de la ciudad.

The Subway or Metro how they call it in Santiago is the best way to move arround, fast, clean and safe, take you to every touristic point in city.

Peruvian roasted chicken in Chile!

by Jefie about Pardo's Chicken

I'd never heard of Pardo's Chicken before, but apparently it's fairly well known since they have restaurants in different countries. We headed over there for our last team dinner once the competition was over. We were immediately greeted with a great big smile by the cook and by the delicious smell of roasting chicken! As there were over 60 of us, we had agreed to only eat chicken to make it easier on the staff, but apparently that wasn't easy enough. Our poor waiter was totally confused, forgetting to take some tables' order, forgetting drinks, plates, chicken, you name it! As we were all in a pretty good mood we didn't mind too much, especially since it was worth the wait: the chicken was very, very good - there was some sort of fresh herbs flavour to it that made it stand out from all other roasted chicken I've had before. The fries were good and the salad was simple but generously covered with thick slices of avocado. The meal came down to about US$6 per person, including a soft drink. It was a nice way to end this very special week! You can't go wrong with the chicken!

Centro Historico

by realde14

Santiago's historic center is a mix between the old and the new, which can be seen in particular in the Plaza de Armas. Other places worth visiting include Paseo Huerfanos, a pedestrian street full of shops as well as the Museo Historico Nacional.
