InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Santiago de Chile

Hello to all Americans in Santiago de Chile! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Santiago de Chile? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Santiago de Chile which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: the smog might take some getting used to, but luckily that is not the only thing Santiago has to offer. The capital of Chile is a quite cosmopolitan city known for its unique neighborhoods, the local arts and music scene, the beautiful natural surroundings, and much more! With the ever expanding public transportation network run by Transantiago and including interlinked metro lines and bus services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the less central regions, such as Vitacura in Las Condes, for example, which are about 15 km away from Santiago de Chile’s center.

Although Santiago de Chile has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Santiago de Chile, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

    LAN is best from the US, Air France from Europe. Avoid Delta at all costs, fly AA if LAN is too expensive/booked. Buy LAN tickets from within Chile if you can, they're less expensive that way.
