Shopping Tour in Chile from the City of Mendoza

The great number of people crossing from Argentina to the various Chilean cities lying on the other side of the Andes with the purpose of buying products at a more convenient price could be defined as a “shopping boom”.

While in Mendoza, travelers may make the most of their stay to enjoy some of the countless outings available in the capital of the province and its surroundings. Its wine tours are becoming more and more renowned and the Grape Harvest Festival invites visitors to stay longer before crossing onto the neighboring country on a shopping tour.

When reaching the high lands in the Province of Mendoza, we came across the international pass named Cristo Redentor, the best known and busiest access to Chilean destinations such as Santiago, the capital of the country.

The distance between the City of Mendoza and Santiago de Chile is barely 360 kilometers. The Cities of Valparaíso and Viña del Mar, among the most famous, may also be reached through this pass.
