Seated at the base of the Andes Mountains and the edge of the Pacific coast, Santiago is perfectly situated not only for sunbathers and mountain climbers, but for those seeking higher education in world-famous universities. Latin America’s finest universities reside in this stable and growing capital as do the country’s biggest businesses. Students relish the asados (barbecues), beautiful neoclassical architecture, and the vibrant and affordable urban environment.
