Hi all! Next Friday I have a 8-hour stopover in Santiago de Chile and I would like to get out of the airport and briefly explore the city. I think I'll be only able to spend 4-5 hours there. Can anyone recommend me what is a must-see/must-eat and how to get from and to the airport? I'm a budget traveller (so I look for buses) and I love wandering around, go to markets and just give a walk around.
Thank you so much.
So I will take flight LA836 from Tahiti to Santiago with 2 hours stopover at Easter island, I travel with Australian passport and I've heard that Aussie enter Chile via Santiago airport needs to pay 117 USD reciprocity fee, just wondering if I am allowed to clear immigration at Easter island airport and re-enter the airport for next flight? Is there any reciprocity fees for Aussie enter Chile via Easter island?
Is LA836 from Easter island to Santiago leg a domestic flight or still international…
Our cruise ends in Valparaiso, and we are wanting to rent a car for a few days before our flight out of Santiago. I'm having a hard time finding info on car rental companies near the cruise ship terminal in Valparaiso. Is there one? Or a few to choose from?

Priceline.com shows a Result for Hertz in Valparaiso, that looks sort of close on the map, but it's hard to tell and I can't find any other info for that location…
Has anyone been to Easter Island? How many days are good for there?
What is there to see?
Where to stay?
It would be very helpful to to know what is the best airlines to use to get a good deal round trip from JFK to Santiago Chile? and then from Santiago to Easter Island Round trip
in about 10 days we will be traveling with a rental car from Santiago to Chiloe and want on the way back pass a piece of North Patagonia starting in Chaiten.
When I get it right this trip includes 3 ferries:
- Canal de Chacao to get via the Panamericana to the Chiloe island
- from Chiloe to Chaiten, e.g. from Castro
- in North Patagonia at Puelche
I have read that in general it might be recommended to book a ferry in advance at least for some specific routes due to the limited capacity.
I'm hoping to visit Easter around November-December for around a week. I'm currently in Peru and travelling through South America so can't be more exact but it does mean In flexible. Basically hoping to share costs of food, transport, accommodation etc so just throwing it out there
I am travelling to Chile in a few weeks.
I am trying to learn a few Chilean phrases before I go. I've got myself a Latin American phrasebook and a Chilean phrasebook.
I've read how Chilean Spanish is really different from Spanish in other countries, however am I correct in assuming that the majority of 'basic' phrases that I would need when booking a bus ticket, booking a hotel room would be same in Chile as in other Latin American countries? Apart from a few phrases, most of the…
