Chile Travel Tips

💧 Tap Water

It’s safe to drink tap water in Chile. However, if you have a sensitive stomach, bottled water can be the best alternative. Tap water in Chile contains high minerals that may cause some difficulties.


💰 Tipping

Wages are low in Chile, so tipping is a source for earning extra. At restaurants, tipping must be at least 10% of your bill. In hotels, tipping is optional but expected. One more point: leave tips in pesos. Exchange centers won’t exchange coins. However, in hotels, you may tip in any currency.


🈯 Language

Spanish is the official language spoken by 99.5%. Look at the bright side: 10.2% of Chileans speak English. Don’t panic: you may find some rudimentary English speakers. But a piece of friendly advice: learn some handy phrases before going to Chile.


💸 Cash

The peso is the currency used in Chile. US Dollars are not often accepted in Chile, unlike South American countries. You’ll easily find ATMs almost everywhere at gas stations and shopping centers.


👗 Dress

Dress etiquettes in Chile are conservative and formal. They almost wear casual dresses but avoid wearing sleeveless tops, shorts, or miniskirts. Just try to wear a regular outfit!


🧻 Toilet

Public toilets are almost available. Use public toilets only when you have to: public restrooms are rarely clean. Don’t forget to take your own toilet paper wherever you go.


🌐 Wi-Fi

Free Wi-Fi is available in Chile, but you need the password. Almost all Wi-Fi connections are secured for only customers. No worries: just ask for the password.


🔌 Adaptors

Plug types C and L are available in Chile. The former has two round pins, and the latter has three round pins. Appliances in Chile run on 220V. If your home country voltage is 110V, you’ll need a voltage converter.


👮 Safety

Chile is exceptionally safe comparing other South American nations. Watch out for shoplifting and petty theft at populated places. Keep a close watch on all possessions.
