Costanera Center opened its doors in June of 2012 in Providencia, one of Santiago’s most happening neighborhoods. With more than 197,000 square meters of floor area, it is Chile’s and Latin America’s largest mall and one of the most important on the continent. Thanks to its location, connection with the community and access to public transportation, it is easily accessible from many different parts of Santiago. Visitors love the more than 300 stores distributed throughout six thematically-organized floors including exclusive boutiques and the best international brands such as H&M, Banana Republic, Gap, Topman, Aristocrazy, Hugo Boss, Guess and Zara, among others. An exclusive benefits program called “On Tour Costanera Center” is available to foreign tourists. The discount bracelet opens the door to enticing offers at more than 100 stores. To register, go to the On Tour booth on the second floor of the mall, show your foreign passport or ID and enjoy the program s benefits. Costanera Center also has a wide variety of the best culinary options including a strip with different types of restaurants, a 2,000 person capacity food court, 12 Premium movie theaters and a supermarket, in addition to other services. And that is not all... Sky Costanera was recently opened on the upper floors of the tower. This highest observation deck in Latin America is 300 meters high and is the only one with a 360-degree view of Santiago. Sky Costanera is open every day of the year, except state holidays, and offers free guided visits in three languages.

    Don't miss the gondola ride. It is cheap as dirt to ride, and it will lead right to some spectacular views of this very busy city of over 6 million people. It is fun to ride up, and you can spot your favorite landmarks. The park is quite nice, and contains the biggest statue of the Virgin Mary I have ever seen,

    Medium sized park on a steep hill in the center of city, was surprised by how large it was in the city. Some walk paths and flights of stairs are uneven and steep, but reaching the top is so worthwhile. Plan enough time to explore. I suggest go in late afternoon to explore 90 minutes before sunset and then head to the top for sunset views.
