Chile Parapente

We do paragliding flights and we teach how to fly.

Reviewed By EricPatricio - Santiago, Chile

A mis 65 años experimenté el volar en parapente. Es un imperdible. Es flotar con un paisaje espectacular del sector Las Vizcachas y Cajon del Maipo. Los instructores muy amables, con instrucciones muy claras y te infunfen la tranquilidad necesaria. La coordinacion fue lo que tiene margen de mejora, en los horarios y logística.

Cerro San Cristobal

This 860 meter hill in the center of Santiago features a zoo and wine museum at the midway point and a gondola ride to the top, where a virgin mary statue overlooks the city.

Reviewed By KWH70 - Toronto, Canada

You get some great views of the city from atop San Cristobal, and you can take the gondola if you choose, or just hoof it around. Huge park offering tons of opportunities to explore. It really comes alive on Sundays when (it seems) the entire city comes out to the park - lively and fun!

Patio Bellavista

Reviewed By mcitaly2016 - Paris, France

It is a good place to relax and pause. Lots of bars, restaurants, pizzerias, and souvenirs shops. It is surrounded with picturesque houses, close to the Cerrro San Cristobal and Neruda’s house La Chascona.
Overall nice, but not extraordinary. One could find a similar place in a shopping mall.

This is a fantastic place for groups reunions and large business meetings. Everything is perfect: the castle and its facilities, the garden, food at the modern architecture restaurant... A great discovery at 1 hour from Santiago.

Cerro Santa Lucia

The climb up this natural 230 foot hill offers a worthy reward: breathtaking panoramic views of the city.

Reviewed By DutchCarioca - Rio de Janeiro, RJ

I was planning to end the Sunday afternoon at Cerro San Sebastián, but already being in the city centre for the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Precolombine Art Museum and running out of time I decided to walk to nearby Cerro Santa Lúcia instead. It takes you about 15 minutes to walk up the hill and climb the final part of stairs. Access is free. On the old fort’s deck you have a 360 degree view of the city and Mountains. The Torre Santiago is exactly behind some trees, but you have an alternative viewing point on it plus mountain backdrop from the small park just below the observation deck. Worth the walk and climb if not going to Cerro San Cristobal.

This was a nice little shop with handcrafted local Chilean products. We bought some yarn from sheep dyed with natural dyes. There were some clothes that could be bought. And there was artwork to see or buy.

Vina Aquitania

A boutique winery at the foot of Andes MountainVina Aquitania is located approximately 35 minutes from Santiago downtown, in the High Maipo Valley. This winery is oriented to produce wines of high quality in limited amounts. During the guided tours this small winery gives the opportunity to learn closely about the complete process of wine production, where the technology with artisan processes are mixed, like the labeling process that is handmade.

I concur with the other reviews. This bodega is a must. Good wines, excellent tour and we went by public transport easily.

Santa Carolina

Enjoy the excellent wines and delightful atmosphere of one of Chile’s most prestigious traditional wineries. An engaging guided tour of our facilities, including the park, colonial manor house, old winery, and the large cellar built using the “cal y canto”—limestone and eggshell—technique in the 1880s. During the tour you will taste 3 wines, the experience ends in our new shop.

Reviewed By Adrianne M

What a lovely surprise in the middle of urban, industrial Santiago! We took the metro and walked a few blocks to the winery, where we were greeted by Andrea, who then took us on a bilingual (English and Portuguese) tour of the historical winery. There were about a dozen people in our group, half Brazilians and half Americans who turned out to be Cuban and Argentine. I particularly enjoyed that the tastings occurred at different points throughout the tour: A white in the restored dining/meeting room, a red in the upstairs storage and processing room (now an events area) and another two reds in the Bordeaux and Bourgogne-style cellars. This winery has a lot of history and is one of the oldest and most traditional in Chile. It was a great place for our first winery tour, as they tend to get more modern (in every sense) as you go into the Valleys. Plus we got a half-bottle of Santa Carolina Reserva Carmenere each as a thank you gift! At 24,000 pesos total, accessible by metro and with a take home wine, this was great value and a wonderful experience.

Museo Interactivo Mirador

Museo Interactivo Mirador is a huge interactive science museum with lots of educational activities for children and young adults. It also has a playground outside..

Reviewed By mtngirl38 - Canada

If you are in Santiago, you should bring your kids here. It is a hands on museum, so you will not see any "no tocar" signs. It is all about interacting with science. Helpful people that work there. We spent the entire day there and still didn't see everything. There are musical things to play with, like a harp without strings that you can play, electricity experiments, giant bubbles to make, things to run through, things to watch. We did not speak much spanish, and yet we had tons to do. The only thing you miss out on if you don't speak much spanish is the extra activities that you have to book, but there is so much to do that you will really not miss out. There is a cafeteria to eat at that has lots of different types of food and is reasonably priced. Play, have lunch, and then play some more. The kids will love it. We took the subway there and then walked. It isn't the nicest area that you walk through when you walk from the subway to the museum, but as long as it is during the day in the light, you will be fine walking with little kids. The bakery on the corner just when you get off from the subway has really good desserts too.
