When we asked people about diversity in Chile and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Santiago is a very diverse city in terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural matters. They seem very accepting of any religious groups but I have noticed here a strong tendency towards "classism" and a definite prejudice (among some) towards any darker skinned people. There is a definite divide among different social classes. Homosexuality is also something that is not well tolerated here. Of course, this is not true of all people here, it is just an observation I have made about some general tendencies," remarked another expat who made the move to Santiago, Chile.

"Chile is a culturally diverse country, with a population made up of people from a variety of backgrounds. Chileans are generally accepting of differences, and the country has a long history of welcoming immigrants from all over the world. Chile is also home to a number of indigenous communities, and the government has taken steps to ensure that their rights and cultures are respected," explained one expat living in Chile.
