The national tourist office, Servicio Nacional de Turismo, or Sernatur, with branches in Santiago and major tourist destinations around the country, is often the best source for general information about a region. The Sernatur office in Santiago is open 9-6 weekdays, and 9-2 on Saturday. The hours of Sernatur's regional offices vary, but can be found on its Web site.
Municipal tourist offices, often located near a central square, usually have better information about their town's sights, restaurants, and lodging. Many have shorter hours or close altogether during low season, however.
