    In general, Chile is a relatively safe country. In my 3 1/2 years living there, I only had one attempt to rob me, and that was because I came out of a nightclub while drunk at 5 o'clock in the morning. Just the slightest bit of common sense and you shouldn't have any problems.

    Do take precaution however while downtown. I do know many people who hve been robbed while walking downtown. Put your wallet in you front pocket and your daypack in front of you. Bag slashers are not uncommon.

    Protect your self from the sun (use a sunblock 15 to 40), take it serious, when walking the street, the sun is very strong and without noticing it you can be burned and spent bad time
