Taxis and 'special transfers'

Arriving on the airport of Santiago de Chile you can take the official city bus which passes every 15 minutes at a price which is 8 - 10 times lower than all the 'special transfers' they offer you at the airport's exit.
If you decide to take a taxi, be careful with it: Most taxi drivers don't like to put the taximeter to be able cash you more.

Santiago, awakens at river border

Between the Mapocho River and the San Cristóbal Hill you can find Barrio Bellavista. From the top of the hill we can appreciate the big Santiago city and its amazing chain of mountains standing as a giant wall; When we go down the hill we find a handful of short colourful streets where you can find a mixture of restaurants, bars and pubs from different styles.
There you can taste the popular cooking as well as to satiate the most demanding and discerning palate, you can get loose dancing the salsa or enjoy electronic music, you can listen Latin-American music, jazz or pop ...You cross the street and you have a change of scene .... In such a way, Santiago's night birds mingle every night in search of fun, a nice conversation, an adventure or just to remain anonymous in the shadows.

Holidays during January

Santiago is usually on holiday during January and February. Thousands of people leave to enjoy the beaches, mountains, lakes, spas, etc. that Chile offers to tourists.
But these holidays do not mean that the city sleeps. Multiple activities fill the agenda of Santiago for the other thousands who stay to enjoy a city with less rushing about, full of sun and things to see.

Santiago never sleeps.

One of the most important cultural activities of the summer is the 'Santiago a Mil' International Festival. Throughout its 15 years' life this theatre festival has attracted ever more people and brought ever better and more varied forms of art, reaching record audience figures of one million. This year, 31 free plays were taken to different areas not only of Santiago, with 276 performances from different countries from all over the world. There were street performances of music and dance, finishing with an impressive spectacle of French fireworks.
For jazz lovers, Santiago delights them in the 'Parque de las Esculturas' (Park of Sculptures) by the river, with its Jazz Festival in January.
But it is not only the summer that brings art and culture to Santiago.

If you are looking for a place to eat in Santiago there are three options

Eat cheaply or eat well in a stylish restaurant. The third option is to eat cheaply in a good restaurant. The first you will find at mid-day in the markets (Santiago's Central Market does not fall into this category as it is very touristy) - throughout Chile you will find small eating places in the markets, where you will find simple but tasty home-made food at low prices. Stews of pulses (beans, lentils, chick peas) with pieces of sausage or minced meat, fried fish, sweetcorn and meat pie in summer, roast chicken with rice, boiled potatoes with mayonnaise or salad are what you will find most often. If you like to eat well in a good-looking place there are various neighbourhoods where the best restaurants in Santiago huddle together.

Bellavista area

In first place, the Bellavista area with its rustic artistic atmosphere and Latin air has the whole range of specialities: Chinese, Thai, Italian, Korean, Spanish, Mexican, Arab or Japanese food.
There are many places where you can sit outside under shady trees.
The Patio Bellavista, a recently opened centre for handicrafts and food, is full of shops and pubs away from the noise of the street. Also, there are good restaurants, home-made icecream parlours and cafés with good expresso coffee.

El Bosque Norte

Another option is the El Bosque Norte street in Providencia or, if you like to be exclusive, the Borde Río culinary complex in Vitacura.
To eat cheaply but well in a good restaurant you have to go to Bellavista at mid-day where, for less than 4 Euros, you will find the famous Menus of the day, which will leave you satisfied and give you an impression of what a romantic 'a la carte' dinner might be like in the same restaurant, when the cost per person would be three times as much.
