Santiago de Chile has too much to offer us as all capitals. It is a relatively orderly city, but it is also chaotic.
How to get to Santiago de Chile and how to move in the city
Santiago de Chile has only an airport called Arturo Merino Benítez which is located in the Pudahuel commune. For those travelling by bus from neighboring countries like Perú or Argentina these get to the “Terminal de Buses Alameda“. Outside of the terminal is located the Avenue of the same name and the metro station “Universidad de Santiago” so to go to any point of the capital it will be very easy.
To move around the city there is a very good subway with many lines and buses that also travel from several communes but here travel time increases. You must be aware that you have to buy a magnetic card to pay for the buses, since you cannot pay with cash as in other capitals as Rio de Janeiro.
