Back to Santiago. From our last trip of South America in 2011 Santiago was one of the cities we like most and so it was great to go back and spend a bit more time there.

We were going to be in the city for 5 nights and decided to book ourselves an apartment instead of a hotel, great decision, the place was awesome and in a great central location.

Whilst in the city we took in some sights like the hike to the top of San Cristobal Hill for great views of the city, Bella Vista the trendy university part of town, a couple of wine tours, and a trip to the mall for shopping and cinema.

We still really like Santiago and it was a great bit of “Normal” before flying to Quito to begin our tour of Ecuador.
