10 Day Package from Buenos Aires to Santiago

The “End of the World.” Sounds like a suspense novel … a song…or a Hollywood movie. But it’s actually where you’re going on this 10-day vacation. And Monograms makes it easy for you! We’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast (plus two lunches and three dinners), sightseeing, and a 3-night cruise to the “End of the World.” Plus, we offer a one-of-a-kind special feature…a Monograms Local Host® in each city: Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, Punta Arenas & Santiago. Your Local Hosts are there to answer questions, offer suggestions, make sure your vacation runs smoothly, and help you personalize your vacation.

Your vacation begins as soon as you arrive in Buenos Aires. So you can avoid the hassles of getting to your hotel, we can meet you at the airport. At your selected hotel, your Local Host will welcome you with a packet of information, so you can begin exploring immediately. The next day, after your included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for private sightseeing with a local expert. Hear the inside stories and see attractions such as the Cemetery of the Recoleta, burial site of Eva Peron. And Buenos Aires is not the only city you’ll visit on this vacation.

You’ll witness breathtaking scenery as you travel to Ushuaia, where upon arrival, your Local Host will help you get settled. This is this southernmost city in the world, dubbed the “End of the World,” and from here, we’ve arranged for you to enjoy a private tour of Tierra del Fuego National Park. Witness the jaw-dropping scenery with pristine lakes, snowcapped mountains, and abundant flora and fauna. After included breakfast the next day, embark your 3-night cruise through Southern Patagonia, including stops to see Cape Horn, Wulaia Bay, Piloto and Nena Glaciers, Magdalena Island, Magellan Straight, and Punta Arenas. With expert Naturalists, you’ll cruise through breathtaking scenery, including channels, bays, fjords, and past massive glaciers, snowcapped mountains, and unexplored areas of incomparable beauty.

In Santiago, your included private sightseeing tour with a local expert starts at La Moneda, the official Government Palace. You’ll also see the 18th century cathedral and the Plaza de Armas.

Going to the “End of the World” may seem daunting, but our goal is to make it seamless for you. We’ve arranged the sightseeing, hotels, cruise, transportation, and we’ve also included a Local Host in each town—all to make sure you’re a happy traveler!

Buenos Aires

Meet Julia Elena Buonaventura, one of your Local Hosts in Buenos Aires, ArgentinaMonograms provides travelers access to a Local Host®, so you will have someone on hand to answer those vacation questions pertaining to Buenos Aires. No waiting in line at the concierge desk or trying to ask your waitress at breakfast directions to the shopping district. Simply ask your Local Host about Buenos Aires and you'll be on your way in no time. Plus, your Local Host will share local Buenos Aires insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet Julia, a Local Host®

Born in Buenos Aires but having grown up under a very strong European influence, my father’s profession obliged the whole family to live in different countries. This provided me the opportunity to study foreign languages and at the same time be in touch with a wide variety of cultures, which has fostered my love of nature and especially people. This passion, together with a strong service vocation, made me embrace the tour guide profession, with which I’ve been involved since I was almost a teenager. I love the city where I was born, its wide avenues and parks, its cultural life, and every single corner where I can find even a simple story and share it with those that pass by throughout my daily life. From my point of view, Buenos Aires has everything, and everything here deserves to be seen and shared.

El Niño Bien

There are many tango shows for tourists in Buenos Aires, but this tango salon is where the locals go to strut their stuff. Have fun observing this graceful dance, but don’t be surprised if an instructor tries to coax you onto the floor. Note that this is not a Tango show, but a Milonga salon where local people go to dance and drink. Note: open from midnight and not all days of the week!

Museo Evita

You can stand before the Casada Rosada and see the balcony where Evita addressed her fans, and you can see the tomb where she was laid to rest in the beautiful Recoleta Cemetery. But to truly understand this controversial woman, visit the Museo Evita where her life story is told through her personal objects.

San Telmo Antiques Fair

Held every Sunday in Plaza Dorrego, this outdoor market is full of small antiques and crafts. Normally free live music and tango dancing complete the experience. The market does not take place when it’s raining.

Alvear Palace

Located in the exclusive Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, the Alvear Palace is one of the most luxurious hotels in South America. Step into the Lobby Bar to admire the elegant surroundings while you relax with a cocktail. Perhaps enjoy a selection from their extensive cognac and whiskey list.

Park Hyatt Buenos Aires Palacio Duhau

Located in the exclusive Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, this hotel opened its doors in 2006. The original building was the residence of the wealthy Duhau Family and was constructed with imported material from Europe. The combined old and new architecture is connected with magnificent terrace gardens. You may enter from Alvear Street or Posadas Street.

Cabaña Las Lilas

The average citizen in Argentina consumes 130 pounds of beef per year. If you want to fit in with everyone from local residents to government VIPs, head to this famous steakhouse dating back to 1905. Known worldwide, Cabaña Las Lilas serves the nation’s specialty like no one else. Every night, local and international leading figures of the 20th century flocked to La Cabana—the place to be seen—to enjoy its famous atmosphere and to sample some of the world’s finest beef. Now, it has relocated to Buenos Aires’ fashionable Recoleta area amid many boutiques, 5-star hotels, and beautiful gardens. The restaurant’s original interior has been lovingly recreated with Gaucho-style, large, open fireplaces and many original design details, including heavy-iron ornaments, leather, and burnished-copper utensils.

La Bourgogne

Taste Jean Paul Bondoux’s haute cuisine in Buenos Aires! La Bourgogne is a kind of gastronomic mecca for gourmets. It offers light meals of fish and beef during the day and the symphony of his creations in French regional specialties during the evenings. There is also the famous boutique of delicatessen products, including top cheeses, on the premises. It is open from Monday to Saturday, mid-day and evenings.

Gran Café Tortoni

Whether you make it to a performance at the majestic Teatro Colón or not, you’ll want to visit its equally famous Gran Café Tortoni. Sink into one of the red leather chairs, order the sidra, its signature alcoholic cider, and enjoy the 19th-century décor like Albert Einstein and Josephine Baker once did.

Belgrano

If you’re looking for a Buenos Aires neighborhood off the beaten path, look no further than the Chinatown located here. Considering most locals don’t even know it exists, you won’t bump into any tourists while exploring its shops and restaurants.

Calle Florida

Shopping in the “Paris of the South” is a delight, and you won’t be disappointed with the shops and boutiques here. Exquisite leather shops line Calle Florida, and many will custom-make something for you during your visit.

Calle Báez (Las Cañitas—Belgrano District)

Buenos Aires is known for its nightlife and whether you want dinner, drinks, dancing, or all three, you’ll find plenty of hot spots on this street.

Palacio Barolo

This odd-looking building, once the tallest in South America, has just recently been opened to the public. It offers sweeping views of the city from its unusual tower.

Palermo Soho & Palermo Hollywood

Don’t miss the trendy neighborhoods with excellent designer shops, cafés, and restaurants. They are recommended during the day and evening!

Ushuaia

Meet a Local Host® in Santiago, Chile

My name is Viviana, and I am from Santiago, Chile. I studied tourism at the University and I have been working as a Host for 7 years. I love my job, and I especially love it when my passengers tell me that it was a surprise for them how wonderful my country is. After studying tourism, I earned a degree in Quality Management Systems, knowing how important it is to be a professional in an industry where every day we use the word ¨Quality¨. We extend these services to all of our guests and I love sharing the hospitality of Santiago!

Los Dominicos Market

Crafts markets can be found around Santiago, as either permanent installations or weekly events; however, Los Dominicos is highly recommended above all other markets for selection and quality. Popularly known as Los Dominicos after its nearby San Vicente Ferrer de Los Dominicos Church built in the 18th century, Los Graneros del Alba is a colonial village of more than 200 shops where you can find everything from fine leather to semiprecious stones, copperware, huaso horse gear, furniture, sculpture and alpaca woolens as well as a wonderful display of cockatoos and other live birds. Besides it has good food for a variety of budgets and often features folkloric music and dancing on weekends. It is located in Las Condes district nestled in the foothills of the Andes.

Mercado Central

Occupying an entire block bounded by San Pablo Street, Puente Street, 21 de Mayo Street and Balmaceda Avenue next to the Rio Mapocho, Santiago's Central Market is a distinctive wrought-iron building dating from 1872. Here you will find a matchless selection of creatures from the sea. Depending on the season you might see the delicate beaks of “picorocos,” the world's only edible barnacles, the orange stars of “erizos,” the prickly shelled sea urchins, as well as an appealing selection of fresh fruit and vegetables. There are a number of restaurants ranging from modest to the finest. Open all year around.

Parque de las Esculturas

Providencia is mainly a business district, but it has one of the city's most captivating and least publicized public parks. From Pedro de Valdivia Metro stop, walk a block north to the Rio Mapocho and cross the bridge. Here you will find Parque de las Esculturas where the gardens are filled with a score of sculptures by Chile's top artists. Because of its pastoral atmosphere, the park is quite popular with joggers. In the center is a wooden pavilion that hosts very good rotating sculpture exhibitions. International Jazz Music festival takes place here during summer season.

Barrio Bellavista

One of the more interesting neighborhoods in the city, its streets are lined with trees and colorful antique homes, many of which have been converted into restaurants, theaters and studios for artists and musicians. It's a pleasant place for an afternoon stroll and in the evening, Bellavista pulses to the beat of music pouring from its many discos and bars. Located at the foothill of San Cristobal, you can also visit La Chascona, one of the three homes once owned by Chile's most famous literary artist, the Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda.

Centro Cultural Palacio de La Moneda

Palacio de La Moneda Cultural Center is a cultural facility in the heart of the civic quarter under the Citizenry Square in the southern facade of the Palacio de La Moneda. It is intended to place the chilean capital in the international cultural circuit allowing participative and formative access for all citizens to the cultural and audiovisual richness of the nation. It was opened in 2006 as a part of the Bicentennial project in preparation for the 200th anniversary of Chile 's republican life. This center houses two main exhibition halls and other minor rooms as the Centro de Documentación de las Artes 'Arts Documentation Center' with information and resources concerning modern and contemporary art and Cineteca Nacional ´´National Film Archive´´ a digital laboratory for film restoring and digitallization. There are also a handicraft shop a cafeteria and two excellent restaurants.

Cajón del Maipo

Cajon del Maipo is part “huaso” (a Chilean cowboy from the Central Valley), part artist's colony, and part small-town charm tucked into a valley in the foothills of the Andes. From Santiago, it's less than one hour to the heart of the Cajón. If you have a day and would like to get a feel for the Andes and its rugged beauty, a visit here is highly recommend. The well paved road through this valley follows the path of the Maipo River. Along the way you'll pass dozens of stalls set up by locals who sell fresh bread, honey, kuchen (a dense cake), empanadas and chocolate to passersby. Then you'll pass the tiny hamlets of Las Vertientes and San José de Maipo, the principal city of the area founded in 1792 when silver was discovered in the foothills. Plan to come on a weekday if you can.
