General information:


December is summer time in Santiago, so expect 25-30 degrees Celsius during the day and around 15 degrees Celsius during the night.

European plugs are used in Chile.

It is generally safe to walk around in the neighborhood of the hotel and venue during the day and night.

Taxis are equally safe to take directly on the street, but always request taximeter.

The Metro system is reliable and comfortable outside rush hours (8.00-9.30 and 17.00-19.30). However, you need to purchase a chargeable BIP Card (around 2 euro) to access the system. Each journey is around 1 euro.
