Where to Stay in Santiago

A Comprehensive Guide to the Best Areas to Stay in Santiago

Santiago at a Glance

Santiago, Chile may not be the cultural hotspot of South America, but it does offer an interesting mix of quaint, gritty, fancy, and rough neighborhoods. Santiago is also perfectly located between the Andes Mountain range and the Pacific Ocean, which means sports enthusiasts can skiing all morning and surf in the afternoon.

September hosts the 'Fiestas Patrias', Chilean Independence day, where celebrations extend all week, showcasing the best of Chilean culture. Each neighborhood will have a 'fonda' where boys and girls, men and women will dance the cueca in traditional costume, eat asado (and of course, empanadas) and drink the famed 'terremoto', so-called because you can't feel your legs after a few!
