Santiago, Chile

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Reñaca and Kingston Family Vineyards. Get out of town with these interesting Santiago side-trips: Lovely Gift (in Renaca), Valparaiso (Paseo Yugoslavo & Palacio Baburizza) and Vina Undurraga (in Talagante). There's still lots to do: do a tasting at Bodegas RE, take a stroll through Vitacura, visit Barrio Italia, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

For maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Santiago vacation maker tool.

Nestled against the foothills of the Andes, scenic San Carlos de Bariloche hugs the southern shore of Nahuel Huapi Lake and ranks among Argentina's top destinations for active outdoor vacations.
Take a break from the city and head to Fishing Charters & Tours and Circuito Grande. Explore hidden gems such as Refugio Frey and Cascada de los Duendes. There's much more to do: head outdoors with Cerro Lopez, trek along Lake Jacob, walk around Parque Municipal Llao Llao, and delve into the lush surroundings at Sendero de los Arrayanes.
