San Alfonso Vacations
The national capital Santiago is situated 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of San Alfonso.
To find out why so many tourists select Santiago Metropolitan as a holiday spot, ensure you and your travel buddies spend a while longer in the many scenic and cultural attractions around San Alfonso. Jechica, is 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and La Florida can be found 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast.
Rent a vehicle and spend half a day in Santiago, a retail and transport hub for the region, 25 miles (40 kilometers) from San Alfonso. The place has plenty of attractions, including Basilica de la Merced, Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo. National Museum of Fine Arts, Clinica Las Condes and Valle Nevado Ski Resort are also worth investigating while you are in Santiago.
Making the time to know some useful words and phrases in the local tongue separates the savvy travelers from the tourist hordes. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" ("Would you like to dance with me?") is handy. And "Este caballero pagará por todo", which translates as "This gentleman will pay for everything"
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend what's left of your Chilean pesos on last-minute mementos and bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the characters you have met and the special places you have seen.
