Sky Costanera

Sky-CostaneraAs if all of these assorted options were not enough already. A new impressive attraction has been brought to Santiago: Sky Costanera. What is it? This is nothing more, nothing less than a 360o viewpoint located on the 62nd floor ( over 300 m high ) of the tallest building in Latin America, the Gran Torre Santiago. Can you imagine the sweeping views? Not to mention the Andes Mountain Range framing the entire city!

This is not an activity for those afraid of heights, or even, a quick sudden trembler. As for the less concerned visitor, however, Sky Costanera is, without a doubt, a must-go destination in Santiago. From there you will get to know Santiago´s main attractions, such as Cerro San Cristóbal, Barrio Lastarria and the Andes from a very unique perspective. If possible, try to go to Sky Costanera on a clear day, just before the sunset. The change in scenery is fascinating, the bright sun slowly fading away while giving place to the city´s warm lights at night is definitely something worth witnessing; apart from the sunset itself, of course.

Although the closing hours is advertised to be at 22:00 hours, beware that the last ride on the lift is at 21:00 hours. Additionally, even though the administration claims they open all-year-round; Sky Costanera closes its doors on the 1st of January, 1st of May, 18th and 19th of September and the 25th of December.
