I am hoping to visit Santiago Chile with my wife and toddler son in about three weeks (Jun- July/2010). Need some advise on the smog conditions during this time, what precautions needs to be taken? My second question is transpiration from the airport to the hotel, whats the safest means?. Is catching taxi from the airport safe? and finally what are the un safe places to avoid in the Santiago area?, any useful information for a first time traveler like myself would be greatly appreciated.
