Best city in Latin America, clean safe and with wide range a nightlife.

Santiago is my country’s capital. It sits between the Andes mountain range and the Chilean coastal range, which gives it a nice stable weather all throughout the year. However, you may want to pack both clothes for cold and warm weather, for it can get really cold in the night but warm during the day.

Santiago is the capital of Chile, a very narrow and long country in South America. The city is in a valley surrounded by the Andes mountains to the east and by the coast mountains to the west. In just about a couple of hours you can access the ski resorts hidden in the mountain range and in the same day visit the beautiful beaches in coastal city of Valparaiso.

Santiago is not a safe place. Because of that, it is necessary to be cautious whenever you are walking on the streets, or partying with your friends. If you are coming to my city, you need to know your wallet must never be on your back pocket, and you cannot lose sight of your bags.

One of its main attractions is a mall called: the Costanera Center, it is an emblematic building that appears in most postcards of Santiago City. It almost never rains in the city. It has four seasons. You can rent an apartment for about 500$ a month. Some streets have foreign country and city names, like New York.

Santiago is the capital of Chile. It’s a beautiful valley surrounded by the Andes mountains. Chileans are friendly and always willing to lend a hand. Be prepared to fall in love with its architecture and surrounding vineyards, which you can find just outside the city whether you decide to explore the northern or southern ends.
