The cost breakdown of two days in Santiago de Chile
I spent the first two days of my four week Chile trip in the capital Santiago de Chile. Like always I jotted down exactly how much I spent:
Day 1: Early morning arrival at the airport in Santiago and drive downtown. Visit of Cerro San Cristobal, the city centre and participation in a guided city tour.
Day 2: Visit of the markets La Vega und Central, walk of the neighbourhood Brasil und visit of the Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos.

Conclusion and tips
A lot of travels say that Chile is quite expensive for budget travellers but I don’t necessarily share this opinion. However, I did not eat out in restaurants, stayed at a cheap hostel and stuck to my budget.
