General Information

Given that Chile is located on the southwest coast of South America, you will likely fly to Santiago, the country's capital city and location of its main International airport. You can also get here by road from neighboring countries ‑ Peru, Bolivia and Argentina ‑, or by sea, arriving at one of the country's seaports. Getting to Chile by road means crossing one of the border passes between Chile and its neighboring countries. From Peru, the single access point is between Tacna (Peru) and Arica (Chile) at Paso Concordia in the Arica‑Parinacota Region. If you are coming from Argentina, there are more than 50 border crossings from which to choose. Chile's seaports, especially Valparaíso, attract cruise ships from around the world. Chile has an extensive network of well‑maintained highways. Major roadways include the Panamericana, which is called Route 5 North between Arica and Santiago and Route 5 South between Santiago and Puerto Montt. This highway runs through most of mainland Chile.
