Gay Santiago de Chile Santiago de Chile City Guide City Guides > Chile > Gay Santiago de Chile Santiago de Chile Curation by Nacho López, words by Casey SiemaskoIf you’re looking for one of South America’s most alluring capital cities, Santiago is the not-so-obvious but oh-so-right choice. Tucked between the majestic Andes Mountains and the Chilean Coastal Range, Santiago promises a little bit of everything—from world-class museums to thought-provoking street art to leafy neighbourhoods dotted with sidewalk cafes. Santiago’s comfortable Mediterranean climate provides the perfect atmosphere for an amble through one of its many stately hillside parks. And of course, wine lovers won’t want to miss a stop at any of the dozen or so nearby vineyards, where you can sip on top-rated Carmenere and Cab Sauv—yet still make it back to the city centre for dinner. In stark contrast to the oppressive Pinochet years (when homosexuality was suppressed entirely), Santiago now has a large, open and diverse LGBTQ community, with LGBTQ organizations and activists continuing to fight repression to achieve equal rights. For your definitive Santiago de Chile gay guide, you’ve come to the right place. Feel like getting away? Take a trip planned just for you, and let us do all the work.
