Trip Type:
City break

Customer Travel Tip: Visit Cerro San Cristobal for a great view of the city. On Sundays the museums are free, so make sure to visit them, the Museum of Pre Colombian Art is worth an afternoon. The house of Pablo Neruda is also good.

Liked: Good Metro system and a city that is easy to walk around and see things. Friendly people and always something to see and do. Beautiful in winter, as there is snow on the mountains and less pollution.

Disliked: Can be hot in summer and polluted too. March can be a very busy time as people go back to work, so the metro and buses are usually full.
