Santiago – The Edge of the Americas
Santiago is a city filled with energy and sophistication. Mountains wrap around the city and separate Santiago from the Pacific Ocean. Lush trees line the roadways, and the skyscrapers add a twinkle of vibrant light to the open sky. The family arrives at the airport and is met by your private transfer before reaching your fabulous accommodation. Each neighborhood has a distinct personality. The city center is filled with exuberant museums and lavish architecture. Tree-lined streets and pedestrian malls add vivaciousness to the afternoon.
The air is filled with the aroma of the rising lush foothills blending with the endless swaying trees. You can look over the modern city atop the old pathways around Santa Lucia Hill. The hill rises over 226 feet above its surroundings and was named after the day in the 16th century in which the area was conquered by Spanish forces. Fountains spritz water into the air. A prominent statue of Pedro de Valdivia stands and decorates the foothill. Cafes and restaurants roar with local spirit, spilling over with music and laughter. The family quickly settles into the city and the energetic culture of Chile.
