Santiago is one of the most developed cities of South America and has a population of more than five million.
The capital of Chile offers the perfect combination of extreme sports, art, and culinary. The main ski centers are 60 km away and lovely beaches await only an hour’s drive towards the northwest.
Santiago’s real beauty lies in the Vineyards of the Maipo Valley, which is one of the largest wine production regions of South America. For people who have a thing for history and culture, the Alameda has many museums and architectural sights. Plaza de Armas is popular for wrought-iron products and sells a diverse variety of exotic products. Across the river there are restaurants, playgrounds and parks. For better views, visitors are suggested to go to the top of the Cerro San Cristobal, which can be reached by bus.
If you’ve never been to Chile and you don’t know how to speak Spanish, Santiago is the place to start. Teaching experience is not required, but take a TESOL course online or in-class so are ready to stand in front of a classroom.
