Santiago, Chile Vacation Packages
Nestled between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Coast, Chile’s capital city is no longer just a stopover destination; it is an up-and-coming town with a bustling food, nightlife and art scene. Don’t miss exploring Santiago’s distinct barrios (neighborhoods). Stroll along Centro Historico’s cobblestone streets and admire significant monuments and impressive architecture.
For upscale dining and art museums, head over to the Lastarria neighborhood. Or for a Bohemian feel, the Bellavista quarter has vibrant street art and lively nightlife. Providencia is a residential area with luxurious accommodations and authentic shopping and dining experiences. And a 50-minute drive from Santiago is Pirque, a valley that’s perfect for cycling and wine tasting excursions.

Explore centuries of history by walking around the city’s Art Museum District or Central Historico’s many parks and cultural activities. Tour Santiago on a bicycle along gourmet routes or follow the footsteps of national poets. Climb to the top of the San Cristobal Hill or the Sky Costanera, the highest lookout in Latin America. Chile is also perfect for a family vacation. Take the kids to the Metropolitan Zoo, learn about art at the Artequín Museum or discover science at the Mirador Interactive Museum.
Santiago is just the beginning of your Chilean adventure. Lose yourself in the hills of the port city of Valparaiso, then cool off on the beaches of Vina del Mar or Renaca. Be mesmerized by the immensity of the desert in the north, marvel at the salt flats of the Atacama Desert, and fall in love with the freshness of the forests in southern Chile.
In Patagonia, visit the breathtaking Torres del Paine National Park, where you can enjoy snowy peaks, glacial lakes, immense ice fields, and even check off one of the most beautiful hikes on earth — the world-famous W Trek.
Some of the best wines in the world are just a few miles from the capital. Pirque and Maipo Valleys await you with activities that are well worth doing. Sixty miles northwest of Santiago, Casablanca Valley has a glass of white wine waiting just for you. Spend the day visiting wineries, and stop for lunch at Tanino Restaurant, recognized as one of the "Top 20 Wine Restaurants in the World" by Wine Access.
Fashionistas will adore Santiago’s elegant avenues that are lined with luxury boutiques. Independent designers can be found in the Lastarria and Italia Quarters while the Iquique District is a duty-free shopping zone. Local handcrafted gifts and souvenirs are sold at many arts and crafts fairs in Santiago and throughout Chile. Want to take home a unique gift? At the Castro Fair, you will find typical wool ponchos with local designs.
Dishes marked by the identity of its ancestral people include tropical fruits, classic empanadas or pastel de choclo (beef or corn pie). On the Chilean coast, tempt your taste buds with caldillo de congrio (conger eel stew) and machas (saltwater clams) parmesan. In the south, enjoy the casseroles of the indigenous Mapuche people, the curanto of Chiloé (a traditional Chilean technique of cooking meat and seafood) and Patagonia’s king crab.
