Altitude

Soroche, or mountain sickness, is present throughout the Andean region; it must be taken into account during a stay in the Andes. The first days at altitude are used to acclimatize: do not hesitate to live a little in slow motion. If you walk faster than the local population ... slow down!

Money

The official currency of Chile is the Chilean peso ($ Ch). Tickets are worth 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, 10,000 and 20,000 pesos. It is easy to change money on Santiago but it is recommended to anticipate and take rather dollars than euros if you are traveling in remote areas where it is not always easy to find foreign exchange offices.

Security

Chile is without a doubt the safest country on the South American continent. As everywhere, however, it is necessary to be attentive when traveling and to respect the rules of common sense.

Health

We strongly recommend to consult a specialized health-travel clinic in order to have the advice of qualified doctors in the field of health abroad. But to avoid digestive problems, it is first of all necessary to pay attention to water and prefer filtered or bottled water.
