Chile is a very good country in latinoamerica, but the quality of life is not good. Chile have very good places for turism but all the greats jobs are in Santiago the capital, Santiago is large population and much stress life and contamination :/
more info about Santiago and Chile http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago,_Chile Santiago have more people than all NZ, 5 or 6 millions of people
I don't know about of cities in NZ, for me the most important thing is the quality of life, I know that you are very good people, maybe you don't understand me.
In Chile I have a great job and great life but is very inestable, is very hard for my friends and family try too improvement the quality of life, I try to help but is not suficient, Chile is very high in corruption, lies and other bad things but is very best in relation to other countries in Latinoamerica.
I like the nature, no stress life, investigate things about the human universe. and other open mind things :)
