"Expats, retirees, and digital nomads living in Santiago typically have a vibrant and diverse social life. They often connect with fellow expats and locals through various social events, language exchange programs, and cultural activities. Many join clubs, sports teams, or volunteer organizations to meet new people and immerse themselves in the local culture. Additionally, they may frequent popular cafes, bars, and restaurants where they can network and socialize with other like-minded individuals. Santiago's thriving arts scene, including galleries, theaters, and live music venues, also provides ample opportunities for socializing and cultural enrichment. Overall, the welcoming atmosphere and diverse community in Santiago make it an ideal destination for expats, retirees, and digital nomads to build a fulfilling social life," wrote a member who made the move to Santiago, Chile.
"Generally fine, but as an expat one must acknowledge that FAMILY to Chileans is the most important thing. So, with large families, they often do not have the inclination or time to meet with others. Unlike in UK, where the cameraderie centres around the local sports club, pub, community activity," explained one expat living in Santiago, Chile.
