Santiago de Chile is the capital and largest city of Chile, with a population of approx. 7 million in Greater Santiago (40% of the country’s population of 17.5 million). At 473 m (1,555 ft.) above sea level, the city is located in the central valley and has a backdrop of the Andes Mountains.
Chile's steady economic growth has transformed Santiago into one of Latin America's most modern metropolitan areas, with extensive suburban development, dozens of shopping centers, and impressive high-rise architecture. It is home to many multinational regional headquarters, a developed financial center and very modern transport infrastructure. It’s time zone (GMT-3) and the availability of direct flights to many cities in Europe, the U.S., and South America make working from Santiago very convenient to international professionals. Moreover, Santiago has a diverse, cosmopolitan culture, influenced by the different groups of immigrants arriving from Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the rest of Latin America.
Santiago lies on a plateau between the Andes, just 50 km away from ski centers and the coastal Mountain Range of the Pacific, 120 km away from the coast. This makes it a very popular attraction for outdoor adventure seekers, thrilled by the idea of being able to ski in the morning and surf in the afternoon. Santiago has a Mediterranean climate: hot summers (November to March) reaching up to 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit) and cool winters (June to September) averaging 13 degrees Celsius (56 Fahrenheit). Rainfall, albeit very little, is concentrated in winter months.
