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.
