City of the Island Hills

Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls. The economic center of Chile, this cosmopolitan capital serves as home to nearly half of the country's population. A tour of Santiago leads visitors through charming neighborhoods, each with its own look and feel--and ideal for exploration on foot. A range of nightlife opportunities draw a young crowd of international pleasure seekers, while the city's central location appeals to tourists interested in exploring the rest of the country from a comfortable urban base. Thanks to its proximity to mountains and the ocean, a Santiago vacation allows you to ski in the Andes and swim in the Pacific on the very same day. Make the most of your holiday in Santiago by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Chile vacation builder.
