Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda y Plaza de la Ciudadania and La Chascona. Do your shopping at Costanera Center and Central Market (Mercado Central). Change things up with these side-trips from Santiago: Casablanca (Kingston Family Vineyards & Vina Casas del Bosque) and Concha y Toro (in Pirque). Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at San Cristóbal Hill, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, wander the streets of Barrio Bellavista, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.
