Surrounded by the Andes, Santiago is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Just a short trip from the resort just about any sort of adventure awaits, from skiing and trekking to surfing and beachcombing. Be sure to pack appropriately for your excursions.
- Bring a lightweight bag or backpack to tote your sunscreen, water and snacks. It is also recommended to bring a cellphone with international service in case of emergency.
- Temperatures and weather can change quickly, particularly at higher elevations, so pack multiple, lightweight layers that can easily be carried along on a trek.
- Surfers would be wise to bring their boards. Santiago is two hours away from several beaches with world-class waves.
