Fly from Santiago de Chile to Los Angeles

If you need to fly from Santiago de Chile to Los Angeles, begin the journey by taking a taxi to Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport (SCL). From there, it's a 12-hour flight north to sunny Southern California. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, you can hail a taxi and head to the downtown area, or to Westside, which is where you can find Malibu, Westwood, Beverly Hills and Hollywood, home to most attractions.


The beaches in Los Angeles are best visited around sunset, when it is not as hot and the view is remarkable. Venice Beach is the laid-back, bohemian setting of many movies while Malibu is a little more upscale with plenty of options for fine restaurants. Hollywood remains the location of most major movie studios. Tours are available, and you may even find yourself on the set of a show. If shopping is your pleasure, then Rodeo Drive, in luxurious Beverly Hills, is the place to be.

Hints and tips

Los Angeles has very nice weather all year round, so almost any time is good to visit. If you want to fly from Santiago de Chile to Los Angeles and save some money, then it s best to do so from September to November when fewer people head for California.
