Top Santiago Tips - Your Insider Tips for Santiago

    There is plenty to see and do across the popular city of Santiago. We asked you over on our Facebook page we for your top Santiago tips. Here's what you told us...



    Take a free walking tour

    Lizz Swan says:

    I really enjoyed the free walking tour by the Spicy Chile Hostel - starts at 2pm everyday by the big Chilean flag! We walked, talked, stopped for a coffee and were guided by some great people.



    Check out the National Museum of Fine Arts

    Andrew Vallejo says:

    Visit Museo de Bellas Artes, eat lots of Empanadas and certainly go to Valparaiso!



    Visit Valparaiso from Santiago

    Emily Mallett says:

    Santiago is cool but the side trip to Valparaiso is awesome

    Lyndsey East says:

    Get a bus ride to Valparaiso to eye the rolling orange hills that go on for miles.



    Sample some local cuisine

    Angie Gouras says:

    Eat many Completo's!



    Sample the nightlife of Bellavista

    Adriano Silva says:

    In Santiago there is a district named Bellavista. It's great, because there are many bars, restaurants, discotheques and others to entertainment... I recommend this place, this city!

    Améng Gu says:

    +1 for Bellavista, it's fantastic. Also the free city tour from the Plaza de Armas is a nice way to spend half a day.



    Head to the hills

    Felipe Nascimento Do Valle says:

    Take a look at the Hills (Cerro San Cristobal) and enjoy an amazing view.



    A real taste of Chile

    Che Lagarto Santiago de Chile says:

    There is so many things to discover in Santiago! We always recommend our guest to have lunch at "La Vega" on the other side of the "Mercado Central" Is not a touristic place and is perfect for you to actually feel the Chilean spirit (in the real fruits and veggies market). Besides, you can have an awesome Chilean meal for not more than $3.000 per person ( USD$6 approx) You should all visit Chile - you´ll love it!



    Visit The Maipo Canyon

    René Olivera Gomez says:

    One Name "The Maipo Canyon" - only 60 kilometres southeast of downtown Santiago where you will see a paradise with over 3600 hectares of rugged mountains and valleys, rivers, springs and waterfalls. Highly recommended!



    Taste some local wine

    Roisin McManus says:

    Casillero del diablo/ concha y toro vineyard



    Stay in a Santiago hostel

    Boris Javier Omar Krumm says:

    Santiago Backpackes is the best hostel to stay in! A bunch of young staff members with whom you can hang out and doing crazy stuff.

    Nadine Squarra says:

    La Casa Roja Hostel! One of the best in South America!



    Try out some of the following suggestions...

    Helio Buccos says:

    Eat fresh sea food as much as you can, like ostiones, locos and machas, mainly at Donde Augusto inside the Central Market. Make a tour in Pablo Neruda's house, the most famous chilean poet, they are located in Bellavista district and in other two cities near Santiago, Isla Negra and Valparaiso. If the skiing season is open, you may go to El Colorado, and enjoy the snow. Visit the museums: Museo de Bellas Artes, MAVI and Museo Precolombino.

    Eu Sou A Marela says:

    El barrio brasil!

    Patricia Molinet says:

    Bellas Artes, Lastarria!

    Lyndsey East says:

    Keep an eye on your belongings, I almost got pick-pocketed.

    Boris Javier Omar Krumm says:

    And get yourself a free tour inside the "Moneda"-Palace. A pre-booking is obligatory and you have a good chance to get a brilliant guide for yourself only.


    Hopefully these top Santiago tips will help you make to most of your visit to Santiago.
