Your life in Chile

The capital, Santiago, is home to more than 7 million people and is one of the largest cities on the continent. Its immense size has drawn people from all over the world, developing a large community of expats.

Interns will live in the most central parts of the city. Each of Santiago’s neighborhoods has a distinct culture, with vendors selling just about everything. Restaurants, shopping and cultural events will all be nearby.  Also, lining the streets are musicians, dancers and performers.

All around the city there are many large parks, bike lanes and public squares. In the center, there are two major hills, each providing a great view of the city. Get to know the city through the music, sports, food and cultural festivals.

Exploring Chile’s Natural Wonders

Chile is a country with something for everyone. For adventurous travelers, there is the mysterious Easter Island. The Island is one of the most remote places in the world and is only accessible by flight from Santiago or Tahiti. However, the long journey is worth it for a glimpse of the famous Moai statues. It is one of the most photogenic places in Chile.

Food lovers can tour the mainland’s famous vineyards and microbreweries, try traditional Chilean dishes with fresh seafood, and shop for unusual fruits.

Whether you love trekking, biking, horseback riding or simply relaxing in hot springs, you’ll find something to suit your tastes in Southern Chile. At the bottom of Chile and Argentina lies Tierra del Fuego, the gateway to Antarctica. Travelers, however, don’t need to go quite that far south to find adventure. Mountains, volcanoes and hot springs can be found close to Santiago, making for great weekend getaways.
