Accessible travel Chile

Chilean law mandates that hotels and public buildings should be adapted to suit guests with reduced mobility, but this only applies to buildings constructed after 1994. The metro and buses in Santiago are in the process of being adapted for wheelchair users, but in places the sidewalks can be narrow and poorly maintained. The landscapes in the National Parks are often more suited to off-road wheelchairs, but many National Parks provide adaptations such as Braille signs and access ramps where possible.

Health

No vaccinations are required to enter Chile, but it is recommended that travelers are up-to-date on their tetanus and hepatitis jabs. Some cases of Dengue fever have been confirmed in Easter Island; if visiting, you should take steps to avoid being bitten by mosquitos.

The ozone layer in Chile is thinner than in the US and Europe, especially in the southern region and Patagonia. From September to November, ‘red alert’ days may be declared, where fair-skinned people can burn in as little as 10 minutes. If visiting this region, bring sunscreen, long clothing, a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.

Security

Chile is known as one of the safest and most stable countries in South America. However, it is still recommended to be cautious and watch your belongings, especially in Santiago and other large cities, and to avoid flashing valuables or large amounts of money. It is safer to book taxis in advance and to only accept rides from official taxis companies. Keep a photocopy of your passport and other documents to hand in case of emergency.
