Few cities have the proximity to nature that Santiago does. Even fewer have national parks on this magnitude accessible via public transit. Well, semi-public transit. From Bellavista de la Flórida, follow the signs in the station that say "Intermodal" and find the #72 bus going...More

You can easily reach the Monumento Natural El Morado from Santiago. It makes for a perfect day trip and you get rewarded with stunning views of the Andean landscape. If you go there in a private car, then a vehicle with high clearance is advisable....More

If you want to really get a feel for the Andes and are staying in Santiago this is definately the place to go. It is a couple of hours outside Santiago (the last 45 minutes or so on an unmade but relatively smooth road). There...More
