Cultural capital of South America, Buenos Aires remains one of the largest cities on the continent, serving as a point of departure for exploring the rest of the country.
Parque 3 de Febrero and Puerto Madero are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Discover out-of-the-way places like Basilica de Lujan and Museo de La Plata. Get out of town with these interesting Buenos Aires side-trips: Tigre (Delta El Tigre & Delta Terra Natural Reserve), Planetario Ciudad de La Plata (in La Plata) and Reserva Natural Urbana (in Castelar). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, wander the streets of La Boca, make a trip to Recoleta Cemetery, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica del Santisimo Sacramento.

Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Step out of the city life by going to Hacienda Picarquin and El Ingenio. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sewell and Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda y Plaza de la Ciudadania. Change things up with these side-trips from Santiago: Machali (Iglesia de Sewell, Iglesia San Lorenzo, & more), Parroquia del Sagrario (in Rancagua) and Vina Undurraga (in Talagante). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at La Chascona, see human ingenuity at work at El Yeso Dam, explore the world behind art at Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, and learn about winemaking at Vina Casas del Bosque.
