I guess it depends what kind of friends you are looking for. If you don't mind connecting with other expats I guess the monthly meetings of can be interesting.

I believe you need  to be registered to see the event details:

I recently arrived from Chile, I have been here for three weeks and I really need to meet people. I have met a couple in bars and such but nothing concrete.

Hi, I'm also looking for some people to do a spot of travelling with, I'm in Santiago at the monemtn for another week then thinkinng of heading north for a week to chekc out the Atacama and the Luna Valley... was sent here to do an internship from South Africa, and none of my friends could take of study or work to come wth at this time, although very jealous... missing friends and people I can just chat to that are not from work as they talk so much around here! Let me know! Here for only a anohter two weeks! Girls preferably as I am a girl looking for a buddy but if a guy is ok to jsut be a friend to a girl that would be cool too :)

I was born here but I grew up in europe so my history is like yours jose. as i said, if there is someone who wants to take a cup of coffe in town just say it.
