Additional Information on Expat Life in Santiago de Chile

Chile's capital and largest city is located in a valley between the Andes and the Chilean Coastal Range. Its colonial history and current bohemian culture mean this diverse city is great for expats that want everything. A top tourist destination, Santiago is cosmopolitan, energetic, and sophisticated, and is home to some fantastic international schools for expats with young family members. Chile has the fifth-largest economy in South America and many expats tend to base themselves in the capital. Expats generally find the move to Santiago an easy transition to make, and the culture easy to understand. The Spanish language is one of the easier languages to learn, and the modern and stable city offers a good quality of life to expats.
