Beautiful Views in Santa Cruz
Two weeks ago, my mom came to visit me in Santiago! (More on that in the following blog post). She wanted to take a weekend trip to a different part of the Chile, and we ended up in wine country–Santa Cruz. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway that’s pretty close to Santiago (3 hours) and relatively inexpensive (about $14 both ways by bus!), I would definitely recommend Santa Cruz. The calm little town is a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Santiago. Exploring the town center and going on a couple of wine tours were the highlights of the trip, and it is an adorable placeo to relax. I 10/10 recommend.
