We have planned a trip to South America in April and our final stop before flying home will be 2 nights in Santiago.
We will be arriving quite late on Saturday night (around 11:30pm) and only have the full day on Sunday to explore Santiago before flying home on Monday.
I had a few questions on the best way to spend our limited time:
- I know people eat dinner late in Chile, but is 12am pushing it? will anything be open at that time for a very very late dinner or will we have to order room service in our hotel?
- is much open around the city on Sundays like shopping centres, markets etc?
- alternatively, we thought we might do a day tour to one of the wine regions on Sunday or to Valparaiso;
-will any wineries be open on Sundays for tasting/lunch etc?
- is it worth visitng Valparaiso on a Sunday? not sure if anything will be open...?
Any other tips/ideas on what to do with our time would be great. We're not too fussed about doing a city tour as my husband often travels to Santiago for business so has done most of the tourist sites.
Any recommendations for great restaurants for lunch or dinner that open on Sunday would be great too - i've heard the food in Chile is amazing!! but also that many restaurants close on Sundays.
ps. not confirmed where we're staying yet but are looking at hotels around the providencia area.
