Study Abroad in Chile: Destinations

    Santiago, the Capital of Chile, is a very efficient city by South American standards, and you’ll have no trouble finding your way around. You will find Santiago a blend of contrasts, old colonial and ultra modern, energizing street scenes and quite parks, elegant shopping and street markets, exciting nightlife and romantic restaurants.

    At the foot of the Andes and only 100 km from the ocean, Santiago provides all of the big-city attractions of nightlife, culture, and fine restaurants while also serving as a convenient point for starting day or weekend trips to Chile's world-famous nature.

    Valparaíso and Viña del Mar. These twin cities are just ten minutes apart by car.

    Valparaíso is the second-largest city and the main port of Chile and is located 70 miles form Santiago, the capital of Chile. Valparaíso is also a home of the Chilean Congress. The city enjoys a spectacular location between the mountains and the sea and a mediterranean climate.

    Viña del Mar, Chile's Tourism Capital, is the premier coastal resort. You'll find fabulous beaches and a bustling commercial sector. Viña del Mar is known as the Ciudad Jardín (Garden City) thanks to its lavish gardens and subtropical atmosphere.
