If you'd like to visit a South American city known for its unique history and culture, as well as for being a fully modern and progressive location, then the Chilean capital of Santiago may be the place for you to escape from your day-to-day life in south Florida. Greater Santiago is a city of over 7 million people and enjoys cultural influence, not only from Spain and indigenous tribes but from around the world as well.
Once you arrive at Miami International Airport (MIA) via car or public transportation, you can easily fly from Miami to Santiago in roughly nine hours.
Santiago sits on the foot of the Andes Mountains and offers easy commute for people looking to hike South America's predominant mountain range. Native American tribes have lived in the vicinity since at least 800 C.E., and it was settled by the Spanish in the 16th century. As such, the city is full of historic attractions such as Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Perpetuo Socorro cathedral. Meanwhile the Barrio Italia allows a glimpse into the immigrants from Italy and local culture and cuisine within a pedestrian-friendly location.
Upon arriving at Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport (SCL), you will notice the city's modern local transportation options to your hotel. For viewing the city's architecture and historic sites, Santiago is famous for free motor scooter tours. Contact your hotel ahead of the trip to ensure you will have a scooter rental waiting when you need it.
