Trekking in Santiago, Chile? Explore Alto del Naranjo

What’s there to do in Santiago? That seems to be a question I hear often. Everyone talks about traveling to Valparaiso, Viña del Mar, or Arica, and although those are interesting places to visit, Santiago also has great places to explore, especially if you want to get in touch with nature and take a break from city life.


Santiago, Chile’s capital, is found in the center of the country near the Andes and only about a 2-hour drive from the nearest beach. Santiago is full of friendly, welcoming people, and is well known for its mountains which boast excellent trekking opportunities.

If you love nature and are into sports, the trekking here is a “must-do” activity for you! One of the best options near the city is Alto del Naranjo, (“naranjo” meaning “orange” in Spanish), given this name for the vibrant colors of the vegetation during springtime. On this excursion, you’ll be able to admire the amazing “Cordillera de los Andes”, as well as the entire city of Santiago.


The easiest way to get to the trail head is via Puente Ñilhue, where you will start off following the Path to the Pylons, until reaching lookout “Mirador de las Vacas”. At this point, you’ll be able to see most of the ski resorts at La Parva. You can also see Cerro Pochoco, named after a man known as Mr. Pochoco, who used to climb the peak, along with stray dogs, three times a week until his death. People would say that the hiker who crossed paths with Mr. Pochoco three times was supposed to receive a red walking stick or “pochoquero” as a gift for their love of the mountain.


Once you pass “Mirador de las Vacas”, you’ll continue your Alto del Naranjo journey along the path until reaching Vallecito Trail. From there, follow the sign’s indications which will lead you to the end of your journey.

At the top you will find the three famous Quillay, a type of soap bark tree originating in Central Chile and only grown in South America. This is the perfect place to rest and enjoy a picnic in the shade while you appreciate an incredible view of the Andes.


The best time of year to explore these stunning landscapes is in the spring, since there’s not too much sun and no snow on the trail, making it easier for beginner hikers. However, the trail is open year-round, from Tuesday – Sunday, so you can choose the season that suits you best. Be sure to take water with you as it is difficult to get any on the trek. Also, don’t forget to bring some cash (no more than $2.000 Chilean Pesos) for the mountain’s entry fee. Additionally, it is easy to get lost on this trail, so it is recommended that you go with a specialized guide, guaranteeing you’ll get the most out of this adventure.

5 Things To Do Before Your Trip to Peru

If you’re planning a trip to Peru for the first time, you might be wondering what you need to do to prepare before leaving. Here’s five essential things to stick on your list, in no particular order…



Peru is one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in South America, from its ancient ruins to its astonishing jungles. However all that can’t be without its risks and its important to top up your vaccinations before you go. The CDC and WHO recommend that traveller’s receive vaccinations for yellow fever, typhoid, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and rabies, particularly if the jungle is on your itinerary. Put some money aside to buy bottled water too as the standard of the tap water can vary depending on where you are.

Suitcase Essentials: Packing tips for your trip to Argentina!

As you prepare to set off on the adventure of a lifetime to discover Argentina, you might be wondering what you should pack. Argentina is an incredibly extensive country with a range of landscapes, making it sometimes complicated to prioritize how to utilize that precious suitcase or backpack space you have available.


Firstly, remember that Argentina is in the Southern Hemisphere! For many of us traveling from the North, it can be difficult to wrap our minds around the fact that we are packing for the opposite season to what we are experiencing. Then again, if you’re heading to Patagonia, be sure to pack warm clothes and a warm hat regardless of the season!

A brief history of Columbus Day

Columbus Day is a national holiday celebrated in North and South America every year in October. It marks the discovery of the American continent by Christopher Columbus, or Cristóbal Colón (born Cristoforo Colombo), as he is known in the Hispanic community. He was an Italian explorer who came across the land quite by chance as he was on a voyage to discover a new western route from Europe to Asia. Columbus and his crew landed on the shores of this “New World” on October 12, 1492, which went on to become a day of national celebration in countries across North and South America.


In the United States, it is known as “Columbus Day”, where as in Latin America it has many different translations. In Chile, for example, it known by its more poetic title “Día del Descubrimiento de Dos Mundos” and in Argentina it is known as “Día del Respecto a la Diversidad Cultural”. These Latin-American names aim to be more respectful towards the indigenous communities as they were technically the first people to discover the land. So in South America, Columbus Day acts as a celebration of the birth of a new identity through the fusion of the indigenous people and the Spanish colonisers.


In Colombia – the only country to be named after the discoverer – the celebration is known as “El dia de Cristobal Colon” and the public holiday will take place this year on Monday October 17. Initially, “Colombia” was actually the general name given to the whole of the newly discovered continent, before being tied specifically to the country as we know it now – although it originally adopted the name of the “United States of Colombia”!


Where as in the United States this public holiday is often celebrated with parades and large events, in South America it is a day dedicated more to the history of the continent, with schools focusing lessons on the events surrounding Columbus’s arrival. It is a day of reflection over the link it created between Europe and America, but also a day of controversy as many people remember the clash between the arrival of the Europeans and the indigenous people.

Don’t be bored on the sand; go Sand Boarding


If you’re gutted about missing the skiing season, do not fear; sand boarding in Huacachina is the answer. In fact, with so much sand in Southern Peru, you’d be foolish not to try it, whether craving the rush from speeding down a slope at 60mph (rumoured to be the fastest downhill speed possible on a sand board), or simply looking for a unique day out with friends and family. On top of the thrill of sand boarding, you can marvel at the views from atop the world’s tallest sand dune – known locally as the ‘Everest of the Desert’ – as well as dipping your toes in the oasis, said to be inhabited by a Peruvian mermaid (we’re not promising anything).

So, what are your options? Well really, it depends on how much you’re willing to invest in the experience. Just hiring the boards and taking them out on the dunes is very cheap and, clearly, the most simple way of taking on the slopes. However, for a more fulfilling (and less exhausting) experience, it is recommended that you include the buggy in your activity, where you’ll race through the dunes to the best slopes and get picked up at the bottom to then be taken somewhere different. This tends to be more expensive – ranging from $12 – $75 USD – but adds extra excitement to the day and stops you wasting time wandering around looking for the best spots to use your board.


Once on the sand you’ll start off basic, lying on your front with your arms on the board and your legs stretched behind you, much like being on a surfboard. As you get more confident you can move onto your feet, with most of the styles taken from snowboarding, such as slalom, boarder cross, slopestyle and big air (basically taking huge leaps from a ramp – good luck with this one). Inside two hours you should be up on your feet, but don’t worry if not; sliding on your stomach is just as fun and you’ll still feel the rush of the wind in your face and the beautiful scenery passing by you on either side before you skid to a halt just before the mystical oasis. And all this without getting snow down your back. Are you still missing the ski season…


So, if you’re done with walking tours and sightseeing, stick sand boarding on your list to-do and enjoy a thrilling experience racing down the dunes, whizzing around in a sand buggy and taking in the mesmerising views from across the tallest slopes in the world, in what is promised to be as extraordinary and unforgettable as seeing a Peruvian mermaid in the middle of the desert.

Everything you need to know about the Metro system of Santiago de Chile

To begin, you should know that the metro of Santiago provides access to most parts of the city including the most important and touristic areas. It’s an excellent option to travel around Santiago since it’s very easy and most importantly, it’s cheap. Wait times are low and the frequency is good.


Metro line 1 (red line) is the principal line of Santiago’s metro and is the most used as it connects to all the other lines. If you want to go to the centre of Santiago you can stop anywhere between Estación Central and Universidad de Chile.

However, even though the experience at the metro can be great, it can also take a turn for the unpleasant. Peak hours (around 09:00 am and around 06:00 pm) when everyone is scrambling to get to work and back can be extremely overwhelming, and definitely worth avoiding. Every station -especially Baquedano station- overflow with people at those hours. There’s no free space in the platforms or inside the metro. So be prepared for the nudging and pushing some people use to get inside the metro and be aware of pick-pocketing because when the metro is packed full of individuals during peak hours, thieves use this as an advantage to steal. I would recommend therefore to always carry a cross-body zippered up purse and never carry your wallet or phone in your back pocket. To avoid any bad experiences you should never take your valuables (passport, credit cards and large amount of cash) with you when you’re sightseeing. Most importantly, always be alert of your surroundings and those near you.


If you’re thinking of spending much time in Santiago, getting a bip! Card is the best option without a doubt . You can purchase the card at any Metro station or any of the Centros bip! around town. Centros bip! are opened 08:00-21:00 (Mon-Fri) and 09:00-21:00 (Sundays and holidays). You can recharge the card at any metro station or corner store where you see the bip! logo only if you’re charging more than $1,000 CLP.

You can buy Metro rides as you go but this is more expensive and if you want to use the micros (local name for the buses), you will need this card. The card itself costs $ 1,500 CLP ($ 2.30 USD). With this card each Metro or micro will cost you $ 720 CLP at peak hours ($ 1.10 USD). Have in mind that you can use the micro (bus) within the first 90 minutes after having used the Metro or vice versa for no extra cost.

Skiing in Pucón

Pucón is a southern town located in Chile’s lake district. It lies on the banks of Lake Villarrica and at the foot of the great Villarrica volcano. The diversity of its surroundings make Pucón a great destination for adventure sports, especially skiing and snowboarding.


Pucón may be one of the smaller resorts in the country, but how often do you get to say you’ve skied down a volcano? Villarrica is actually one of Chile’s most active volcanoes and one of the few permanently active ones in the world, although most of its activity is largely un-explosive. It stands at over 9000 ft above sea level and is capped with snow all year round, including 40 km2 of stunning glaciers. The north side of the mountain is where you’ll find The Pucón Ski Centre, in an excellent location just 20 minutes from the centre of town. In general a ski holiday here is a really unique, rustic experience away from a lot of the more commercial resorts, where you’ll be able to experience true chilean culture during your stay. The slopes themselves make for some awesome skiing, as previous lava flows have created a unique terrain with natural half pipes and overhangs.


You can even go on a ski tour to the summit of the volcano where you’ll get to peer into the lava lake bubbling in its craters before an epic ride all the way back down the mountain. One of the great things about skiing in Pucón however is the range of other activities you can try your hand at if you fancy a day off the slopes. For a start its location in the Villarrica National Park means you’re never short of some magnificent nature to explore, including secret volcanic caves, forests and hot springs. You can find some great tours at TheBesty.


Pucón also has its perks in terms of the exciting nightlife and is a hotspot for people looking to party apres-ski. With a bunch of bustling bars, clubs and a casino to choose from, there’s a great vibe for young people wanting to let off some steam after a day on the mountain.


As already mentioned, the Pucón resort is on the smaller side so if you’re an expert rider looking for some insane off-piste skiing or boarding, somewhere like the Valle Nevada is probably more suitable for you. Nevertheless,  for any intermediate or even beginner it’s absolutely spot on. It provides the perfect blend of great terrain for skiing and fun things to do off the slope, with some of the most breathtaking surroundings you could experience on a skiing holiday thrown into the mix. Plus, it’s a great excuse to travel down South!

An Introductory Class to Argentine Tango – The Importance of Tension, and Balloons…


Having just gotten home after my first ever class of Argentine tango, I thought I should pen down a few impressions and tips I learnt for you while they are still fresh.


I followed the music past the posters on the wall featuring ads for tango concerts and milongas. Inside a large room with one long mirrored wall were a couple, floating to the music with their eyes closed and their arms tightly wrapped around each other, apparently completely unaware of the ten-or-so people gathered at the entrance watching them. As the song came to an end, we all clapped and the couple came out of their trance to welcome us into the room. They made it all look astonishingly simple.

One of the first comments our instructors made was about the difference between milonga-style tango and show-tango. Milonga-style, he said, comes from the heart and is in large part improvised. While this may be the case, we cannot dance tango from the heart without some crucial fundamentals our instructors emphasized: tension, a few basic steps, and rhythm. Posture, body awareness, communication with and consideration of your partner immediately follow in this pyramid of necessary tools on the path to Milonga expertise.


So how, one might ask, does one acquire said tools?

Well, glad you asked. For our first ingredient – tension – you will need a balloon, a fellow human being, an open space with no obstacles, and a tango song in order to try this at home. Place the balloon between your chests and lean towards each other so that the balloon cannot fall away. While the Leader guides the direction as you step to the movement, both parties should always be applying pressure to the balloon. Three rules apply to this exercise: (a) no hands, (b) do not pop the balloon, (c) do not let the balloon fall. This, dearest fellow tango apprentices, gives you an idea of the approximate distance and tension you are supposed to maintain with your tango partner at all times.


It turns out that if both dancers are applying tension towards the other, it takes very little movement for the Lead to silently communicate to the Follow exactly where to move and what steps to make. Using the hands as messengers of the Lead’s intentions, tension is the secret ingredient that allows the crisp moves of the tango to be made with grace and assertiveness for both the Lead and the Follow.

Everything You Need To Know about Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport

If you’re planning to travel to Santiago soon, keep reading!


Santiago de Chile is a cosmopolitan city. The official language is Spanish. The monetary unit is the peso. Coins are of 1, 5, 10, 50, 100 and 500 pesos and notes are of 500, 1.000, 2.000, 5.000, 10.000 and 20.000. It is advised to change money in banks or currency exchange offices but not in the streets.


Every traveller who arrives to Santiago by air arrives to the airport Arturo Merino Benítez (SCL), located approximately 15 km away from the centre of Santiago.



Customs and Immigration

In general, the customs and immigration process doesn’t take long, however you should be prepared for delays especially in high-season months. These delays occur because when two or more international flights arrive in a short period of time, the immigration facilities can’t cope with the massive surge of arrivals.

Once you arrive to the airport you will need to go through immigration, and only Australian, and Mexican passport holders must pay a reciprocity tax. Then you will pass through the Chilean agricultural and food control (SAG) and pass through Chilean customs.

One important thing to keep in mind: if you are entering Chile on a tourist visa, make sure you have proof of travel leaving the country within 90 days of your arrival, as the airline might not let you onto your plane. Airlines can be subject to fines if they allow passengers to board who do not fulfill correct visa requirements, so they can be significantly more stringent than the customs employees at the Chilean airport!


On your incoming flight, you will be given a little form (PDI) to fill out. This form is a tourist visa and is VERY important. You must keep it with you until you leave the country and surrender it to immigration.

Recap: do NOT lose the little piece of paper the customs officer places in your passport, as you will need it when you leave the country!


Be aware that you’re not permitted to import the following items when entering Chile: fruits, seeds, cheese, meat, vegetables or non-processed animal products, firearms, munitions, explosives or illegal drugs. If you wish to bring any of these items into the country they must be declared and authorized by the SAG inspector.

Services and facilities at the airport

– Money: there are banks, ATM machines and currency exchange offices located within the terminals. Santander operates a branch located at the Landside, on the second level of the airport from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, (Mon-Fri only).

– Food and drinks: there are numerous bars, fast-food outlets and cafés but these aren’t open 24 hrs. There are seven mini markets (operated by Mercadito, Mini Market and Maxi) located in both the International and Domestic Terminals which are open 24 hrs.

– Information desk: located at the Landside, ground floor, gate 2 or at the first floor, between gates 2 and 5. It’s open 24hrs.

– Pharmacy: Farmacias Cruz Verde are located at the Landside, second floor. Open from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm (Mon-Fri) / 06:30 am to 9:30 pm (Sat) / 07:00 am to 10:00 pm (Sun)


FOTO Bus eléctrico_Chilectra

There are several ways to get to Santiago: buses, shuttle or taxi. Taxis can be pre-paid at the airport with a credit card, but buses must be paid in cash and in Chilean currency so it’s convenient to change some money at the airport, yet I recommend not to change all your money as the exchange rate is not very favourable.


Taxis may be hired at the taxi company counters, located right after Customs but before the exit gates inside of the arrival halls. Several companies also have counters in the main lobby.

After purchasing a ticket for your destination, you will be given a ticket with the destination info, reference rate and the location of your taxi outside in the Via Controlada. They will direct you to the main lobby where you will see someone holding a sign of the company you have purchased with, who will take you to your taxi driver.

There are usually other taxis waiting at the airport. If you’re confident with your Spanish, you can negotiate a price. But for first time visitors, I would strongly recommend reserving at one of the counters.

– Approximate time: 20-30 min

– Approximate fare: regular taxis (painted black and yellow) run on a meter and tourism taxis (painted blue) charge a fixed rate according to your destination

– Schedule: 24 hrs

SHARED TAXIS (also known as colectivos)

This option is commonly used by those passengers who are traveling with big suitcases and do not want to spend as much money as they would on private taxis. Shared taxis can take a minimum of three passengers and up to six passengers usually. Each taxi takes people who are going to the same village but you may be the last one to get home so it’s not necessarily the fastest method. Shared taxis are also a great option for those traveling in a big group of people.

– Approximate time: 45-60 min (depending on the quantity of passengers)

– Approximate fare: CLP 7.000 (per person)

– Schedule: 24 hrs

This option can be hired at Domestic Arrivals, International Arrivals and First Level Central International Hall. There are two shuttle services:

– Transvip: (cheaper)
Phone: +56 2 2677 3000

– Transfer Delfos: (more expensive)
Phone: +56 2 29138800


If you prefer to use the bus to get to the city centre, there are two bus companies: Turbus and Centropuerto.

– Tur-Bus (tel: 600 660 6600, has several stops: Las Rejas Metro Station, Terminal Alameda – Universidad de Santiago, Pajaritos Terminal and Terminal San Borja – Estación Central Metro Station. Tur-Bus buses are available from 05:00 am to 12:00 am (every 20 min) and there are night services every hour from 01:00 am to 04:00 am. You will have to pay at the bus, CLP 1.700 for a single ticket and CLP 2.800 for a return ticket.

– The Centropuerto bus (tel: +56 2 601 9883; stops at the Los Héroes bus terminal, close to the Los Héroes metro station. The fare is CLP 1.400.
