Destinations / Latin America

Santiago is an interesting city with plenty to do and see. Travelers will love exploring the city and learning more about the culture.

 

Bellavista is a neighborhood in Santiago featuring graffiti-lined streets with cafés, art galleries and boutique shops. There are many things to see in this artsy neighborhood. It’s a good way to learn more about the culture of Santiago and how the people live. This is also a great place to get souvenirs, especially those who want artsy ones.

 

At $55 a person, this restaurant is high on the budget, but will fill up travelers for a full day of adventure. The restaurant, Noso, is located in a hotel. The best part is you can eat a little bit of everything and get a true taste of Chile. Travelers can start with breakfast then move on to the seafood and salad bars. There is also a meat bar and a dessert bar for those who wish to get the full experience.

 

Later in the day, visit the Museum of Memory and Human Rights. This museum is free to the public and will allow travelers to learn more about General Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship. This is an important time for the history of Chileans. During the rule of their dictator, thousands of Chileans were tortured, murdered and disappeared. The museum succeeds in increasing the awareness of the impact of the dictators’ decisions; it also pays tribute to the thousands of lives lost.

 

After a heavy brunch, take it easy in the evening and stop by a street vendor for some grilled corn or other popular street food. This won’t cost more than a few dollars and will be enough food to replenish a tired traveler.
