Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Explore Santiago's surroundings by going to Flower Clock (Reloj de Flores) (in Vina del Mar), Valparaiso (Walking tours & La Sebastiana) and Concha y Toro (in Pirque). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from San Cristóbal Hill, take an in-depth tour of Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos, admire the masterpieces at Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, and don't miss a visit to Plaza de Armas.

To find photos and more tourist information, refer to the Santiago trip planner.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, step off the mainland to explore Expedicion Fitz Roy, examine the collection at Palacio Sara Braun, and head outdoors with Strait of Magellan.

To find other places to visit, maps, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Punta Arenas vacation builder site .
