Hidden Gems of Yungay: 9th coolest neighbourhood in the world.
Hi! I'm Diego. I-m born and raised in Santiago and I've been a tour guide for the last 8 years in the central zone of Chile. I also have studies in English teaching so I'm effectively fluent in English. i-m a born traveler, father of a baby boy and arts aficionado. I have cycled more than 5 thousand kilometers along Chile and also part of Argentina. I've done several hikes as well so I can give lots of recomendations for those who are looking for outdoor adventures. Join me to see the best of Santiago with a real speaker of English!
