Hiring a car in Santiago is a great way to explore one of the most modern cities of Latin America. Surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of the Andean mountains, the town also boasts a coastal range by the west.
When in Santiago, you may be surprised with the somewhat lack of historical buildings from the Spanish colonial times. This is due to quite a proeminent history of hearthquakes in the country. However, a car hire in Santiago allows you to know the few buildings which remain from that era, such as the Casa Colorada or the San Francisco Church.
Another great experience you shouldn't miss out is climbing to the summit of Cerro San Cristobal, also known as Parque Metropolitano, through a funicular - which means your car hire can be safely parked while you admire astounding views from the top! Here you can visit the National Zoo, most likely the only place in the whole country where it is possible to have a glimpse of Chile's national animal: the pudu deer.
Only one-hour drive away from the capital lies Valparaiso, one of the most significant ports in the Southern hemisphere. Here you can enjoy a number of cultural venues and the town is also nationally renowned for its sizzling nightlife. Further north, you can drive your car hire to Antofagasta, another port city which even includes a small replica of the great Big Ben!
