Chile Tips for Mid-range Travelers

As a mid-ranger traveler you will definitely feel comfortable in Chile. With more spending power you can sample the excellent local wines, stay in significantly better lodging and get more out of the organized tours.


Security Tips

Staying in better accommodation and taking organized tours, you are less of a target than budget travelers, but it is still advisable to take care of your belongings, lock your luggage if taking the bus and be sure to ask about the hotel safe.


Tour Tips

Take advantage of the many tours offered across Chile and relax knowing everything is taken care of, from the airport transfer (therefore saving you the hassle of negotiating with the taxi drivers) to the reservations at the country ranch where you're staying while wine-tasting, skiing, or trekking through Patagonia.


Lodging Tips

Mid-range accommodation options are definitely a lot more exciting and offer significantly more value for your pennies. Away from the cities, do not miss the lovely haciendas and resorts, the stuff great memories are made of.


Food Tips

Chileans know what good food is and there are a lot of excellent restaurants, especially in the cities. You will find the full range of cuisines, local and international, to suit all palates. For lunch, food courts in shopping malls are handy for good clean fare. In the evening, the restaurants in upmarket hotels are often a nice change from your usual à la carte and often afford great views. You will be pleased to know that you will also not need to go without your cappuccino or latte, as good coffee shops abound.


Transportation Tips

You can avoid the crowded buses and take the metro, or even better, just hop straight into one of the many taxis, known as colectivos, which are still very reasonably priced. For long journeys, the executive buses are quite comfortable or, for more civilized way to travel, take one of the many well-maintained trains out south of Santiago.
