Resting on an inland plain, with the Andes glimmering in the distance, Santiago, the capital of Chile, is the fifth largest city in South America and home to nearly 5 million inhabitants; a third of Chile's total population.  With its many museums, events, theatres, restaurants, bars, it is also the political and cultural centre of the country. Its central location within Chile makes it a great base for visiting other areas and it is possible to ski in the nearby Andes and, later the same day, relax on the beach. 

The city's European heritage is evident in the Parque Forestal, modelled on Parisian parks by a French landscaper. Walkers pass down tree-lined paths along the Mapocho River, past small squares and the Museo de Bellas Artes.  Across the river, the Parque Metropolitano is Santiago's playground, with walking trails, picnic areas, and a zoo.

For the more adventurous, a hike up Cerro San Cristobal offers stunning views of the city, but it can also be reached by bus or funicular.

Best time to be there

As the climate varies hugely from north to south, different places are best at different times, although spring (September to December) is universally good. Atacama can be visited year-round, central Chile enjoys a Mediterranean climate with good weather throughout. Patagonia is best for hiking in Spring or Summer.
