The city of Santiago sits at the mid point of the long thin country, with the spectacular backdrop of the snow capped Andes mountains. Ideally situated for day trips to the wineries for tastings and pairings whilst enjoying an al fresco lunch under the shade of the vines under the hot Andean sun.
Leafy plazas are fringed by cafes and street food sellers. There is a lively arts scene, exciting districts that have been regenerated (Lastarria, Bellavista) with exquisite boutique hotels converted from turn of the century elegant town mansions.
The evocative Central Fish Market is brimming with the best of the Pacific Ocean's fish and seafood served up straight from the ice bucket to your canteen table.
No wonder that Santiago is emerging as a city to explore for longer beyond just a hub that connects the extreme north, south and oceanic islands.
