Here are some highlights :

You'll be happy to learn that there's a fantastic location just 90 minutes outside Santiago if you enjoy skiing and snowboarding.If you want to go away from the city itself, Valle Nevado is considered to have some of the best skiing in the Andes and is unquestionably one of the best things to do in Santiago.

Valle Nevado has activities suitable for skiers of all levels, regardless of their level of experience with the snow (thank goodness for them blue slopes). This makes it quite simple to visit as the slopes are all divided according to different skill levels.Don't forget to take advantage of the summertime opportunities to go mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding. It's a breathtaking place to visit.

The Sky Costanera, a pretty gigantic skyscraper made of sparkling glass, rises high over the rest of the city. Especially at dusk, it's unquestionably among the top things to do in Santiago. Visit the Sky viewpoint for one of Latin America's best and most impressive vistas. The Sky Center, which is nearly 1,000 feet (304 metres) tall, provides 360-degree views of both the surrounding Andes and the city below.

In the heart of Santiago, there is a small, private hill park called Cerro Santa Lucia. Don't be fooled by the phrase "little"; this park offers some rather expansive views in addition to a lot of natural beauty. Be sure to pause as you up the slope to admire the park's two outstanding buildings, Castillo Hidalgo and Fuente Neptuno.Prior to being transformed into a beautifully landscaped park by mayor Mackenna in the 19th century, the park was a rocky, uncared-for hill.It's a stunning location to visit and unquestionably among the greatest things to do in Santiago when the weather is nice.

The greatest places to see Santiago are in Metropolitan Park, where cable cars can take people to the summit of San Cristobal Hill.The park also has a zoo, botanical gardens, a religious sanctuary, a children's park, a funicular that was built in 1925, and more. You should also ride the Teleferico Santiago if you want to see some vistas. Santiago will be visible to you from above, and it is stunning.

We saved the best for last …Delicious, modern restaurants serving a wide range of regional and international cuisine can be found all across the city. I've had the opportunity to visit many outstanding restaurants in Santiago during my my visit to this amazing nation. 

All in all, I absolutely loved the food and drink scene in Santiago Chile! If you ever have a chance to go, I would highly recommend it. From fresh seafood dishes to delectable wines, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Choclo Pastel. The most well-known meal in Chile is based on a somewhat sweet maize variety known as choclo.A must tryAnd of course, don't forget about the amazing pisco sours! . Great food and world famous wines will make you feel like you are in heaven .

Santiago is a beautiful and culturally rich city that I would recommend to anyone looking for an amazing travel experience. From the food, to the people, to the scenery, there is something Santiago Chile for everyone to enjoy. I can't wait to go back and explore more of this wonderful country!
