Tips

  • Santiago is essentially a commercial city; only in the past decade has it become an important tourist destination.
  • Most of the citizens, especially around El Centro, are business people and usually wear suits and ties. Avoid dressing as if you are on a mountain hike. No need for backpacks.
  • Even though the numbers of visitors from the US, Canada and Europe have increased tremendously in the past decade, it is still difficult to find English-speaking people on the street: taxi drivers, restaurant waiters, shop attendants, and police only speak Spanish.
  • When you want to change foreign currency (e.g. dollars or euros), the best place to go is Agustinas Street in El Centro. Only use the exchange houses.
  • Avoid walking around El Centro or Bellavista during late hours of the night. Use a hotel taxi, especially on weekends.

From Marcelo: WHERE TO ROCK IN RIO

"There is no other city in the world where having a friend to show you around (i.e. Tours4Mobile) will be as useful as in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. With 8000, bars, 3600 restaurants and dozens of kilometers of white, sandy beaches to cover, Rio´s breathtaking tropical atmosphere inspired me to invite you to travel to this exciting destination.

On your fist visit, the best place to begin is Copacabana, approximately 40 minutes drive from the airport (officially known as Tom Jobim International). Known as 'Copa' by the Cariocas (locals), this is where most of the hotels are located. Southwards and within walking distance of Copa is Ipanema Beach, a place made famous by Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Morais in their song 'Girl from Ipanema'. According to the insider legend, these musicians would spend a lot of time in a bar, waiting for a tall, tanned, young and lovely girl called Helo Pinheiro to pass by. Today the bar is still there, the street is named after Vinicius, and Helo is a national celebrity.

By the way, if you plan to buy property, be warned that Ipanema is the most expensive neighborhood on the planet. Next to Ipanema is Leblon, not so crowded during the day, and favored by actors, singers and fashion models. However, if you really want to 'Rock in Rio', Lapa is the place, full of bars, restaurants and cabarets. If you can´t get any action there, you won´t get it anywhere!"

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
