Around Santiago

Santiago is surrounded by a bevy of activities that offer a little something for everyone. You can try some of the best wine in the whole of Chile (which puts it pretty high on the list of best wine in the world) on a day-trip from Santiago, such as at the nation鈥榮 most famous winery, Vi帽a Concha y Toro. After an afternoon of wine tasting, spend the next day on an outdoor adventure. Depending on the season, there are great rafting, hiking and horse riding choices. During the winter season, Chile boasts world-class skiing. Portillo earns high marks from all visitors and La Parva claims to be the most exclusive in the area, but there are cheaper options available for backpackers and those on a budget. 

 



Other neighborhoods in Santiago: Caj贸n del Maipo, Providencia, Bellavista, Las Condes, Barrio Brazil, Center, Barrio Lastarria and Barrio 脩u帽oa.
