Wait in Santiago Airport

We are travelling to Quito from Australia in October and have a six hour wait in Santiago for our connecting flight. Will we have long enough to visit the city, or does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks.

Taxi will be about 45 minutes, depending on traffic. Cost about 20,000CLP. Bus would be about 3000.

If you carry Australian passports you will have to pay the reciprocity fee to leave the transit area.

Thanks. Do you know if there are any organised tours leaving from the airport?

I don't know of any regularly programmed ones but you could always hire a car and guide/driver. But it is fairly easy to get into town on your own and you may not have that long when you factor in check-in times.

Thanks very much. We'll have to work out how much time we're likely to have to spare.
