Santiago de Chile is a thriving city with a mix of historical sites, cultural attractions, and natural beauty.
Santiago de Chile stands out not just for its stunning landscapes but also for its open-minded and accepting community that adds an extra layer of warmth to the travel experience for LGBTQ+ visitors.
Santiago has a vibrant LGBTQ+ scene for visitors to experience, especially the Bohemian Bellavista, Bellas Artes and Lastarria neighborhoods. There, people will be able to wet their whistles with delicious local drinks, world-class Chilean wines, and immerse their palates with tantalizing cuisine. For those looking to live it up at night, Bellavista offers a great variety of bars, discos and unforgettable drag shows. Wine lovers can experience some of the best wines by visiting beautiful vineyards in nearby wine valleys. Cajón del Maipo is a canyon deep in the Andes where people can be mesmerized by its flora and fauna, as well as its amazing views of these young mountains. Along the way you might even see some glaciers on the mountain tops.

Santiago is shaking things up with vibrant new bars, clubs, pubs and neighborhoods. Without a doubt a nightlife scene that’s steadily erasing its reputation as a less-than-glamorous stopover city. We’re gonna take you through lights, music and Santiago’s dynamic nightlife! We start at around 9:00 pm by wetting our lips at the first bar. We’ll share a nice conversation and a first glimpse of the local scene and customs. We will then continue to a very sexy Drag Queen’s show where you’ll see the best local talent doing "their thing". Afterwards, we'll point you in the direction of the best parties of the night in case you want to shake that booty at some of the city’s best discos. We can also include a dinner in a nice restaurant in the Bellavista District. Duration 4 to 5 hours.
DAY 3: A DAY AT THE VINEYARDS
Chile is famous for its world-class wines and we are fortunate to have 2 of Chile’s well-known valleys near Santiago. We will visit 2 boutique-style vineyards and enjoy personalized wine experiences, while learning about an old-style wine making that few wineries use today. This is obviously followed by generous wine tastings. The Maipo valley is one of Chile’s oldest red wine valleys and offers an incredible variety of red wines. The Casablanca valley is a young valley, but also the largest white wine valley in Chile. They produce an amazing variety of whites and light reds, such as Pino Noir and Syrah. Each valley is an all-day activity.
