Santiago de Chile by day


May to August – is the rainy season and temperatures can fluctuate from day to night (at night can drop to zero during the day range from 10 to 25 degrees).

Many accommodation don´t have central heating so we recommend taking warm clothing. Comfortable walking shoes, jeans or impermeable trousers, waterproof jacket, long sleeve shirts and sweater (dress like an onion, with layers, is our best advice)


November to March – is dry and hot (maximum temperature between 30-35 degrees). At night it cools pleasantly and almost never rains. Light clothing and sun protection (hat, sunglasses and sunscreen)
