What Are These Women Like?

Super Friendly And Outgoing

In general, Chilean people are very friendly toward visitors and foreigners. Part of this is because they’re used to many tourists visiting the country, but it’s also because of their culture that encourages open-mindedness.

The girls are no exception. If you walk up to them on the street or in a park or plaza, you should find it relatively easy to start a conversation. The woman you approach will most likely be polite, have a smile on her face, and won’t act annoyed or like she’s in a massive rush. Expect her to be friendly even if she doesn’t reciprocate the attraction.

When it comes to your dating life, she’ll love to go with you to parties, festivals, activities, or other kinds of events.

Passionate Lovers

What can I say? These girls are total romantics!

Assuming you can win a girl over, she’ll show you much affection both inside and outside of the bedroom. In addition, she’ll crave physical touch, acts of kindness, and eye contact with you throughout the day to strengthen both your emotional and physical bonds.

That is one huge reason why women from this country make such great life partners. But even if your time spent with her is limited, cherish every moment you get to spend together because when she’s into you, few women in the world display the same level of desire, care, and affection.

They Are Gorgeous

Chilean girls are fun to spend time with and passionate when you get to know them, but it’s their gorgeous looks that should attract your attention to them in the first place.

Similar to Argentines, a majority of Chileans are of mostly European descent, having ancestry from:

  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Germany
  • Britain
  • Greece
  • Croatia

That translates to the girls having a generally lighter skin color than girls from most other Latin American countries and firmly defined facial features.

Ambitious And Proactive

Perhaps the biggest reason why dating a woman from Chile is fun is her ambitious approach to her career and proactive personality.

You’ll find that she is highly driven towards her career and takes charge of her life with a go-getter attitude. Her self-reliant and hardworking approach will inspire you to be your best self, too.

With a clear vision of what she wants to achieve in life, she pursues her goals relentlessly, making her an admirable partner to have by your side.

Strong Family Values

As with the rest of Latin America, Chile is traditional when embracing gender roles for men and women.

That means she’ll be heavily invested in her family life and eager to introduce you to them once she starts to take you seriously. But, if anything, her helping raise her younger siblings and take care of the house is what has forged her resilience in life.

The Stereotypes of Women from Chile


Girls from Chile, like their counterparts in other Latin American countries, often find themselves battling against a major stereotype. It is commonly believed that they are focused on dating foreign men only because of their wallets. Obviously, this is not entirely accurate.

What is true is that Chile is more traditional in terms of gender roles, and women play a significant role in managing household affairs. However, they are also more motivated to pursue their careers.

Thanks to the country’s higher standard of living, girls here tend to be better off than women in other Latin American countries. Moreover, it is easier for women here to climb the economic ladder.

In summary, women in Chile do not rely on men to the same extent as women in many other Latin American countries do, which has a positive impact on the dating scene.

When a woman chooses to date a foreign man, it is more likely that she views him as an equal potential life partner rather than just a source of financial security.

How To Meet Singles in Chile?

There are two primary ways to meet local singles:

  • in person by visiting the country
  • through dating sites and apps

Best Cities To Meet girls

Roughly a quarter of the population lives in Santiago, the capital and largest city of the country.

My advice is to stick to Santiago and the other few big cities, like Valparaiso or Conception if you are serious about dating the girls here.

Santiago, in particular, has the best nightlife of any city in Chile. Valparaiso and Conception are smaller cities (though they still have several hundred thousand people) located right along the coastline.

Between the last two, Valparaiso has a generally younger demographic and a more Bohemian vibe, while Conception is more of an industrial city.

Many ex-pats also stay in Valparaiso, so chances are equally good you could meet a girl from another country there as you could from Chile.

Also, give Vina del Mar a shot. It is also a coastal city with very nice resorts (if you’re up for a more luxurious vacation) and a flourishing nightlife scene that seriously rivals Santiago.

The rest of the cities and towns are honestly a bit small, and the people there are even more traditional if you know what I mean. The girls in the smaller towns may be somewhat more resistant to an approach from you simply because they aren’t as used to meeting foreigners as the girls from the bigger cities.

Where To Find Local Singles

The trick to meeting locals is to put yourself into an environment where it’s natural to meet girls.

Hostels are one of the best places to meet people naturally. All you have to do is ask someone where she’s from or if it’s her first time visiting, and you’ll get some friendly banter going just like that. You could then ask if she’s up for exploring the city with you, and you may have a date!

Outside of hostels or hotels, other great opportunities for meeting women are in:

  • public parks
  • beaches
  • shopping plazas
  • hiking trails outside of the urban areas

You can quickly stop a girl for a brief interaction at any of these areas and without keeping her too long from anything she needs to go to.

Dating in Santiago

As I said earlier, Santiago is the number one city in Chile to date women. It has the best nightlife, the most cultural experiences, and the greatest diversity of women.

It’s also the city where most travelers fly into first, so chances are good you’ll start your trip in Santiago anyway.

Meeting Women During the Day

Santiago provides plenty of opportunities for meeting women during the day. My top two recommendations are to try the public parks and shopping malls.

Not only are they fun to explore on your own, but there are lots of girls walking through here every day, either while running errands or while taking a break from work.

Then, when you see a particular girl who catches your eye, walk up to her quickly to start an interaction and hopefully get her number.

My favorite parks in Santiago are:

  • Quinta Normal Park
  • Parque Forestal

In regards to the shopping malls and plazas, check out:

  • Mall Vivo Imperio
  • Mall Costanera Center
  • Mall Espacio M
Nightlife and Dating Opportunities

Chileans are fun-loving and outgoing people who like to party. The city of Santiago, as you can imagine, is built to accommodate this.

The city has an abundance of restaurants, bars, lounges, and clubs. You won’t even have the opportunity to check out every one of them!

The culture here is also unique in that it is customary to begin a night of fun in the afternoon with tea. That’s why you’ll find lots of tea shops in areas with bars and clubs as well.

My favorite neighborhood for meeting women is Barrio Bellavista. Known as the ‘Bohemian quarter’ of Santiago, this is the city’s very soul for having a fun time.

It also provides you with the best opportunities for meeting Santiago women, especially at night. Some of my favorite bars and clubs include:

  • Barrica 94
  • Red Luxury Bar
  • Hangar Bellavista
  • Club Soda
  • Loom Bar

Meeting Women Online

Use online dating sites and apps to match with Chilean women (specifically in the city you’ll be visiting), and you can set up dates in advance before you even arrive.

If you go this route, my recommendation is to start using the apps at least two or three weeks before your arrival. That gives you ample time to secure matches and establish some sort of relationship with them.

Two of the most popular dating apps in Chile are LatinAmericanCupid and LatinWomanLove.


latin american cupid review

LatinAmericanCupid is an international dating site where most of the members come from Central and South American countries.

The site has millions of members, including many thousands in Chile, and many of the girls here are looking for serious and long-term relationships.

To contact anyone, you’ll need a premium membership, though, with prices starting from $11.25 per month for the Gold plan. This gives you access to live chat that you can use to contact your matches. You can also use it to highlight your profile and get more visibility on the platform.

LatinWomanLove is also a viable option. In terms of services, it is similar to LatinAmericanCupid, as you need a paid plan to chat with local singles.

The membership costs 10 bucks per month, but you also need to buy credits that you can use for live chat, sending letters, and other paid services. Credit packages start from $15.99, and it gets cheaper the more credits you buy.

Final Dating Tips to Attract A Woman from Chile

Here are my final dating tips for attracting gorgeous and fun Chilean singles:

Be Well Groomed and Dressed

One of the best things you can do to attract the glances of local girls is to put a lot of effort into your appearance and what you wear.

You see, most foreign men don’t excel in this department. They look like ‘tourists’ if you know what I mean, and it makes them instantly stand out (and not exactly in the best way).

My advice is to look presentable. Ditch the Hawaiian-style shirt and cargo shorts for a nicer Polo and trousers. Keep your hair carefully combed, and make sure you smell good. You’ll be surprised at how much dressing well can help you!

Start the Conversation

Remember, Chileans embrace traditional gender roles, so as the man, you’re expected to take the initiative in forming a relationship.

If you see a girl you like, the burden is on you to go and begin a conversation with her.

You can ask her something simple, like directions or the time to begin the conversation, but honestly, I wouldn’t beat around the bush. Instead, just ask her how she’s doing or what she’s up to, and explain why she caught your attention.

Be Sincere

There’s nothing more Chilean girls appreciate than a sincere gentleman. That’s why I say you shouldn’t beat around the bush. Be straightforward in regards to why you’re talking to her.

Yes, maintaining an excellent appearance is important, but at the end of the day, she’ll look beyond your looks and at who you are as a person. Women want a man who is confident, honest, and who knows what he wants, so prove to her that’s who you are. 

Ready to Date in Chile?

Chile is worth a trip, especially if you’re interested in dating there.

The country boasts breathtaking mountain ranges, modern cities, and unspoiled natural beauty that you won’t find anywhere else in South America.

When it comes to the local women, you can expect to meet outgoing individuals with distinct European features that set them apart from other Latin American singles. They are confident, ambitious, and career-oriented, making for a fascinating dating experience.

So, are you ready to be captivated by the charm of Chilean singles?
