The sauna culture in Chile is developing as the country is slowly changing its moral stand dating back to the Pinochet epoch. Many things which are now legal are slowly being accepted by the general public. In Santiago there are a few saunas with European standards, unlike the existing bath houses which date back many years. These "Baños" are really male-only and not gay. For this reason, be discreet when visiting these establishments.
