Re: Looking for the best City for my Family

I have a wife, 2 kids that both speak Spanish decently well (the oldest near fluent), and are looking for a coastal (scenic if possible), mid-sized city with a good school for our kids and access to good health care. ...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

What are the ways to get the money back? . Shaming him in FB or any social media won´t work either ´cause most chileans when it comes to "plata" have no shame. Depending on this person status in society, I disagree. if he projects himself as a successful businessman and moves in the higher society ...

Re: electric vehicles in chile

If the car / truck is for commercial use, then you can convert to gas. I have seen plenty of taxis that drive on gas and a friend has a new Ford F150 that he converted.

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

[quote=41southchile post_id=186885 time=1543024934 user_id=23998 As it stands right now, a uni degree here only improves one's social standing, and then only slightly if they don't actually work in the profession. Why would anyone but them pay for improving their self-esteem? I disagree. Without a ...

Re: Ski Season Los Lagos

I liked Chillan when I went some years ago. Some great runs and off-piste as well. Weather however can be tricky as they close down the higher parts of the mountain frequently. IN Santiago, Valle Nevado is by far the better option. Looks like others agree with me in regards to Chillan: https://www.e...

Re: Need advice buying a new cell phone to bring to Chile

As admin says, then the price difference should be minimal. I would buy here - saves you the hassle and if something happens then it will much easier with the warranty locally.

Re: Amazon to go to Colombia....Not Chile

As I understand it, then it is a service centre they are installing in Colombia - ie a call center / online support. It has nothing to do with either AWS or actually installing a physical distribution centre. If that is understood correctly, then it can be no surprise. Chile is too expensive to oper...
