About Suzisantiago and buying a car in Chile
The Suzi dream.
I never recommend something to anyone before I tried it myself!
It all started in the summer of 2013, I wanted to do a long trip in south America and buy a car in Chile. The thing is that I wanted to do it differently. To be able to reach places that most travelers don’t get to see. The second thing is that I wanted to take all my kitesurfing gear with me. So I realized that what I need is to buy a car in Chile! But renting a car for more than a year is too expensive... So I had to buy a car.
