The Metropolitan Region has attractions that are related to the city’s tourism, based on numerous museums and cultural centers, a wide offer of places for walks and fun, both day and night. Also, the proximity to the Cordillera de los Andes offers the possibility of practicing mountain activities and winter sports. Likewise, the rurality of this region, which can be found in communes located a few kilometers from Santiago, allows to appreciate the traditions, landscape, and activities of the Chilean countryside. However, despite having several tourist resources, this region presents itself as the most important reception and distribution center, both nationally and internationally. This is because in the Metropolitan Region is the main airport of the country (International Airport Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez) and the most important bus stations.
