SANTIAGO DE CHILE – 4 Days

Visit Santiago de Chile, Valparaiso & Viña del Mar

Santiago de Chile boasts a one-of-a-kind location, sprawled out below some of the highest peaks of the Andes mountain range, providing a breathtaking city backdrop when the air is clear and the peaks are dusted with snow. This 4-day tour will provide you with a general overview of the most important sites as well as a visit to Viña del Mar and Valparaiso, located on the coast of  the Pacific Ocean. Extend you trip and get the chance to visit Santiago’s wineries, which produce prestigious wines that are well-known around the world. 

Day 1 – Travel to Chile: Discover Santiago de Chile

 

Today we’ll pick you up from Santiago de Chile airport and take you to the city. Discover the bustling capital city of Chile!

 

Located between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, this modern city offers all kinds of attractions for curious travelers. From different viewpoints in the city, you can see the natural beauty surrounding Santiago; the snow-capped mountains and the beautiful Valle del Maipo, where the best Chilean wine is produced.

 

Santiago de Chile is known as the home of Pisco Sour, the beautiful Santa Lucia Hill and the “Sanhattan” district, which is a stylish fusion between Manhattan and Santiago; heaven on earth for enthusiastic shoppers.  

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

Enjoy your first evening in the city by visiting a museum in the Bellavista district which used to be the home of Pablo Neruda, a famous Chilean writer, and then wander the streets of Bellavista, the most bohemian and colorful district in Santiago, passing by traditional cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Day 2 - City tour to explore Santiago

 

Today we’ll pick you up from your hotel and take you to explore the city! Visit the beautiful Santa Lucía Hill, a famous downtown garden from where you’ll have the best views over the city, and the Hidalgo Castle, which was a fortress during the time of the Spanish Conquest.

 

Continue the tour by traveling to Plaza Constitucion, the central square of Santiago, where you can admire the La Moneda building, the current house of the government. From there, walk to Plaza de Armas while your tour guide illuminates some interesting facts about Chilean history, culture and architecture. From Plaza de Armas you can see the Metropolitan Cathedral, the permanent residence of the archbishop.

 

Next you’ll explore the Central market, the Mapocho Station and the Museum of Fine Arts, before ending this urban exploration at the top of San Cristobal Hill, the second-highest lookout of the city. Enjoy your free time at San Cristobal Hill sipping a “mote con huesillo” or a traditional pisco while admiring the amazing barrios of Santiago. At the end of the tour, we’ll drive you back to your hotel to enjoy the rest of the evening.

Day 3 – Santiago de Chile - Viña del Mar & Valparaiso Tour

 

Today, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and take you on a full-day visit to Valparaíso, the most important port of Chile. Why visit Valparaiso? This unforgettable city, constructed on the steep slope of a hill, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and shows off the unique art and culture of Chile.

 

Starting in Plaza Victoria, covered by Peruvian sculptures, we’ll continue to explore downtown and Plaza Sotomayor, until finally reaching the Prat port. From there we’ll take our first gondola of the day and head to the beautiful Palacio Baburizza, constructed in 1916. Pass by the colorful houses that stare down from above the bay, and descend once again by taking another gondola. 

 

Leaving Valparaiso, we’ll head to Viña del Mar, the favorite Chilean summer-vacation destination. Enjoy a relaxing evening walking on the coast and the pier, which extends into the Pacific Ocean, and visit the beautiful “Reloj de Flores”, a giant clock that is entirely made of flowers. At the end of the day, we’ll drive you back to your hotel in Santiago de Chile.  

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

Enjoy your last night in the city by tasting the traditional ‘empanada de pino’ (a meat-stuffed taco) at Empanadas Zunino, the most traditional place in the capital to buy this finger-licking delicacy. For those who want to make the most of your last hours in Santiago, go to a bar and order the ‘terremoto’ drink. ‘Terremoto’, means earthquake; no explanation necessary!

You could not improve on what we experienced.

We first learned about Say Hueque trough web search and decided to travel with you because of your attention to details.

The efficiency of all the logistics, pick ups, hotels and flights was our highlight of travelling with you.

Our favorite hotel is the Higueras in Valparaiso because of it´s location, food, décor and staff.

The full paine rib trip was the best excursion. Connie, our guide at Las Torres was awesome.

You could not improve on what we experienced. Thank you very much – you and your company provided a really supurb service!

We have sent several couples to Say Hueque and they have all been very satisfied. Say Hueque is professional, competent, flexible, and they pay attention to detail.

Say Hueque: Say Hueque is a travel agency in Buenos Aires, specializing in travel within Argentina and Chile. Last year they planned a 5-week trip for us. The itinerary included Buenos Aires, Ushuia, El Calafate, Bariloche, Puerto Varas (Chile), Chiloe Island (Chile), Santiago, Valparaiso, Vina del Mar (Chile), Mendoza, Iguazu Falls, and ending at Estancia Candalaria del Monte. This year they planned a 3-week return trip for us. From Buenos Aires, we returned to Bariloche and to Mendoza, then spent a week in the North (Salta, Cafayate, Purmamarca, Jujuy) before returning to Estancia Candaleria del Monte.

Say Hueque is a 5-star travel agency. Yanina Castano was our agent and she did an excellent job. Silvia Monico also did a great job in Yanina's brief absence for her honeymoon. It is our understanding that Marisol followed our itinerary and assured connections throughout the trip were made.

We have sent several couples to Say Hueque and they have all been very satisfied. Say Hueque is professional, competent, flexible, and they pay attention to detail. Except for two minor glitches, neither of which was their fault, everything went like clockwork and as planned. And, even though neither glitch was their fault, they compensated us beyond our satisfaction.

Guides and Drivers: Last year we had great drivers, and except for one location in Chile, we had wonderful guides. The problem in Chile was that our guide at one location spoke absolutely not a word of English so she did not even try to communicate with us. We speak only a little Spanish, but at least we try to communicate and most of the time we are successful.

There are too many guides and drivers to mention, but credit must go to Say Hueque as they are the ones doing the job assignments. I should say that my wife and I like to do "shared driving" which gives us an opportunity to meet other Americans and meet people from other countries. The only time it did not work out well was last year in Ushuaia when our jeep was overcrowded and the seat belts did not work. Otherwise, shared driving really can be fun. That said, this year's experience was private transportation and was very much appreciated. There were four of us traveling together on this itinerary, so having the advantage of one vehicle for us was expedient as well as convenient.

Hotels and Posadas: In two years we have been very happy with all the hotels and posadas Say Hueque has arranged. I must mention that we prefer staying outside the city where it is quiet, rural, beautiful, and a little isolated. Yes, to get to town we sometimes need to get a taxi. The trade-off is worth it to us.

Joan and I have always asked Say Hueque to have breakfast included. It saves time and gets us off to a great start for the day. We do not want lunch or the evening meals included. That gives us an opportunity to find our own restaurants which we enjoy doing. I should say that we NEVER stay at big, expensive 5 star hotels, or eat in big, 5 star hotel restaurants. Say Hueque has accommodated our requests very well. In fact, we enjoy going to restaurants often suggested by our guides. Those would be small, inexpensive, great family places. void of anyone not Argentine.

The following is a recap our itinerary this year.

Cities/Accommodations--
Buenos Aires: We stayed at the BoBo Hotel. We love this little unique hotel. The rooms are a bit small, but the BoBo is spotlessly clean and in the Palermo Soho District, within walking distance of museums, gardens, shopping, restaurants, and historical sights. Breakfast is served in the hotel's restaurant, and one has many choices with eggs served exactly as you like them. The restaurant is a little spendy for dinner but really is wonderful with EXCELLENT service and nice wine choices. It is also a great place to recover from the long flight from Portland, Oregon, to Buenos Aires before getting out and exploring.

San Carlos de Bariloche: We stayed at the Cacique Inacayal Hotel right at the edge of town and within walking distance of everything there is to see in the city center of Bariloche. Be sure to visit the several brew pubs in Bariloche, Try Manusch for a beer and a wonderful lamb burger prepared exactly the way I wanted it. There is a large variety of beers, as well as many other items on the menu. The French fries are 5 stars.

The hotel offers one of the best sights in Argentina and overlooks the beautiful blue/green lake, Nahuel Huapi. Watch the sun rise from the east to hit the mountains of the west. The rooms are wonderful, neat, large and clean. Each room has a wonderful scenic view. Breakfast is 5 stars, the best we experienced in Argentina. It was totally international and wonderful. Coffee service was excellent. There are many great restaurants within easy walking distance. We highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Mendoza: Posada Verde Oliva, a wonderful accommodation 5 miles outside of Mendoza in Maipu. They have lovely rooms, beautiful grounds to include a vineyard and olive trees, a very nice breakfast with eggs served your way, 5 star service, very friendly employees, and a pool. If you don't mind a taxi ride, this posada is a must- stay in the Mendoza area. You will not be sorry. And if you don't want to go back to town they will provide you with a dinner, as long as you make arrangements in the morning. We visited 8 wineries in 2 days so we wanted to rest in the evening. They prepared a wonderful salad, a meat and cheese plate, and delicious empanadas. Their kitchen refrigerator is on the honor system, beer, soft drinks and about everthing you need. You just log it in a folder. All prices are most reasonable.

Salta: Hotel Antiguo Convento: This hotel in the city was one I wasn't sure we were going to like, but it really grew on us. The rooms were small, old, but very neat and clean. The staff provided 5 star service, especially since we had 2 overnighters. They had to move our luggage to storage and then back to our room again two times--three, if one includes check-in. Breakfast was not my style, but most people loved it. It was the French style with lots of breads and pastries, but little protein. It was located near many restaurants, historical sites, and shopping. Give this hotel a chance. I think you will like it.

Purmamarca: Los Colorados, a very nice accommodation just overlooking Purmamarca. The rooms are huge and in a lovely adobe style. They have kitchens if you like, and have wonderful views of the city. There are patios on the roof top or on the lawns on the ground level. We had experienced a long 10-hour drive on Route 40 to Purmamarca and were very tired, so the host suggested having a local, very good restaurant bring a take-out dinner to our room. She made all the arrangements and we were very thankful; the dinner was excellent.
As for breakfast, it was delivered right to our room. How nice was that?
We would recommend this hotel for a unique experience. It is within walking distance of town, but could be a little tough at night on a rough dirt road. Take a flashlight. Get onto the roof top at sunrise and sunset. It will be two of the most beautiful sights to see in Purmamarca.

By the way, plan on not using your VISA in Purnamarca and many parts of Salta and Jujuy Province. The distances between the major cities are far; villages are remote. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking through valleys and gorges and across deserts to the top of mountains--spectacular.

Cafayate: Cafayate Wine Resort, a very beautiful place looking across the city directly at the distant mountains. The rooms are 5 star, the grounds are beautiful, they have a very nice restaurant, service was excellent, and breakfast was very nice. Dinner was excellent and beautifully presented, but a little pricey. You can walk to town, but it will take about 1/2 hour at a good pace on a gravel road. Most people use taxi service. Many used the pool at this resort. This is a place to relax, drink wine, eat well, and enjoy the scenery. Say Hueque scored another goal with this place.

Buenos Aires Province: Estancia Candalaria del Monte. We saved the best to the last. We wanted to rest before the long long trip back to Portland, Oregon. If you stay no where else in Argentina, you must stay at the Estancia Candelaria del Monte. This is a great ranch about 90 minutes from Buenos Aires, well worth the drive. The staff, food, grounds, services, and accommodations are all 5 stars.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Estancia are all amazing. The young chef will create plates that taste as good as they look. He barbequed two asados while we were there for our three-day experience. He is young and talented. He serves as much fresh local food as possible.

The service people become family in a short period of time. It is as though they can't do enough for you. They are a loving, polite, friendly staff. We had a hard time parting when we had to leave. If there was something we needed from town they drove us without hesitation. When it was time to ride horses they helped everyone get on. If you were thirsty, they would serve water, beer, wine, tea, coffee, or whatever. And when your drink was delivered it came with homemade pies, cakes, cookies, cheese, ham, or whatever the chef was making at the time or had on hand.

We cannot say enough about this accommodation. We are very happy Say Hueque found this place for us. You must stay at Candelaria del Monte.

Contributing Say Hueque local tour companies that deserve stars are as follows:
Bariloche: Kawen Adventure Travel; ask for Federico, Rodrigo, or Karen. Julio also was a knowledgeable and excellent driver.
Mendoza: SAK Wine Travel; ask for Vicente
Salta: Ramal Travel; ask for Martin--he is excellent as a driver/guide

You have our permission to use this evaluation in total, or in part, anyway you choose. Our experience with Say Hueque has been 5 stars. Not only have we used Say Hueque twice in 2 years, but we brought 4 guests with us. We have recommended Say Hueque to many of our friends and acquaintances and at least two persons used Say Hueque for their tour to Argentina.

We would ask Say Hueque to forward this Email to each of the accommodations mentioned above, and to each local tour company mentioned above.
