    Hi Lonnie, I haven't been to Chile before, but my general rule is always to exchange some of my cash before I get there. It means I'm not caught short at the start of the trip and then I find a local currency exchange when I need more. Never get it exchanged at the bank or airport as they rip you off not just on the exchange rate, but also a commission as well. You tend to be able to get better deals in town. To be honest I use my credit card pretty rarely outside of hotels as I like to deal in cash, just a personal preference. about 5 years ago

    I'm from chile & the most part of my money in santiago, ñuñoa, Av macul con av irrarazaval, or in santiago, providencia in Av 11 de Septiembre con Av. Pedro de Valdivia.
    But the best is talk with a chilean friend and make the exchange in a bank for more security about 5 years ago

    Lonnie.
    Today's exchange rate in Santiago is 462 CLP to US$. no commission.
    US$ can be changes everywhere in the center of Santiago and it is safe.

    Your better choice probably is retreive money from an ATM, there are plenty of them in Santiago and other cities. There are an app call "iredbanc" to locate them almost 6 years ago
