Santiago is the capital of Chile, which is located on the western edge of the continent. The country itself is adorned with several lakes and canals as well as a huge number of active volcanoes. The city, however, is a bustling metropolis of sophistication with a number of fine restaurants, museums and top-notch hotels.
What to do there?
With such a long coastline, indulging in some time at the beach is definitely a good idea – and the best part is that it’s only a short drive away. If you’d rather take in the surroundings of the city, why not opt for a dash of culture at one of the city’s many museums and galleries or, enjoy a little shopping and take in the nightlife in the Las Condes and Providencia districts?
In the colder months, you can catch some serious air and show off your skills by taking a day trip to one of the ski resorts around Santiago … El Colorado and La Parva are especially well-known if you’re looking for a snow-filled adventure experience. You don’t even have to compromise on luxurious accommodation … Sun International’s Monticello Casino and Hotel is only 45 minutes away from Santiago and has everything you need to keep you relaxed and content during your stay.
