Santiago - Post Report Question and Answers

What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Torres del Paine National Park, Easter Island (Rapa Nui), Pucon and the surrounding hot springs and national parks, and San Pedro de Atacama are all outstanding, world-class travel destinations. Lauca National Park is also amazing, but much less visited and a bit harder to organize. Chile has tons to offer though. That list could be expanded tenfold with awesome places to go in Chile. - Dec 2020

Trekking trips for the most part around the greater Santiago area. My job keeps me traveling quite a bit, so I haven't had much down time in Chile. - Jun 2019

Visiting a lot of the beautiful views and places. I definitely recommend going to some of the smaller town outside the city and big tourist locations. There have been some interesting finds, like Bahia Inglesa, San Antonio, Melipilla and Frutillar. The wine route will feel a bit been there done that, if you've lived in California, South Africa, Italy etc. The real bonus are the vineyards and wineries that have good restaurants included. There are lots of outdoor activities during the summer. Many times even though it is still warm a lot of places are not about making money; once the kids go back to school they close. - Feb 2016
