"Santiago is the capital city of Chile We flew into Santiago Airport and the drive into the city was about half an hour. The airport was very clean and efficient. There were sniffer dogs in abundance all around the luggage carousel area, they walked ove the luggage and in amongst everybody very calmly - not sure whether it was drugs or something else they were after but they were not going to miss anything.

Chile In Winter

AdvantagesA relatively gentle introduction to South America.

Nice city...

AdvantagesNice hotel, good steak, skiing

DisadvantagesVery big, no laundrettes

"Santiago is a fine city. We stayed in a hostel called the hotal Londres, a huge, elegant building with high ceilings and shutters with ensuite rooms and breakfast, for about 12 dollars a night. We managed to go skiing at a resort only an hour's drive from the city, and had a great day on the slopes. Then we came back to eat the best steak any of us has ever tasted at a huge steak house. We also went to the cinema one rainy afternoon, delighted to ..." Read review
