It depends on what you like. I personally love all things outdoors. So, if I am on a budget and want to be outdoor hiking, fishing, seeing beautiful views, etc. without spending a lot of money to get to and from these things, Santiago is your choice. Buenos Aires is a better city with more too see a...

All, Does the two temporary visa years count towards the 5 years of residency requirements for citizenship in Chile? If that is the case one would only have permanant residency for 3 years?

People living in O'higgins region

All, I have been living around Rancagua for 8 months now. I have made a lot of Chilean friends but I am in need of some communication with other gringos. The only gringos I have seen and talked to in 8 months are the LDS missionaries knocking doors. Is there anyone living around Rancagua or in the O...

Re: Diesel vs Gasoline In Chile

If I bought a vehicle at the remate my assumption is the calculations on the final price would be the following. Lets assume I won a bid on a vehicle for 5,200,000. I would then have to pay the commission of 10.5% which bring my price to 5,746,000. Then ontop of this I have to pay the IVA on both th...

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

Another question about these car auctions. What is the deal with Chinese vehicles? I know in the states any vehicle or motorcycle that are Chinese you are supposed to stay away from but it was two fold. 1 not built the best and 2 you can't find parts to save your life. Is the availability of parts f...

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

Curious for those that have purchased from auction, would my credit card(chase) from the states work? I ask because sometime the web pay works and sometimes it doesn't. I think it depends on the company if they will accept a foreign credit card. For example my entel bill I can pay online with a fore...

Re: Cheap Tickets on American

I have been flying back and forth from Chile about every other month since May 2019 on American Airlines. I average about 650$ round trip to Chicago. I have noticed that round trip to Miami and Dallas are about the same price.

Re: ACTIVE CRISIS ZONES

I'm sorry, but I have to ask. What the fuck are you people reading or being told that would even put those shithole industrial low class, toxic and social disasters on your "to be considered as a place to live" radar screen?
