The big winner is Chile, especially for the historical aspect because the country will celebrate in 2018 its 200 years of independence. But beyond the cultural wink, Chile has many other arguments to make.
For its capital
Nestled between hills and mountains, Santiago creates a unique urban atmosphere and creates a more relaxed atmosphere than in some of South America’s major cities. Among the must-see places, the Cerro San Cristobal hill is a must to admire the charm of Santiago while gaining height. The luxury destinations in Chile offers an exceptional panoramic view of the expanse of Santiago and the beautiful Andes Mountain range as a backdrop.
Is it a child-friendly destination?
Traveling with children in Chile is no problem, the sanitary conditions are optimal, and Chileans take a benevolent look at the families of tourists. These last years? The capital Santiago has renovated and opened many museums, some of which have been adapted to the free youth, this is mainly the case of the museum of pre-Columbian art which has play areas for the youngest. In this same city, the zoo, which is accessed by funicular, remains a safe bet. The varied and impressive Chilean fauna will delight young and old, including parents. The observation of condors, llamas, whales, and penguins is a unique experience!
What are the culinary specialties of Chile?
Chilean gastronomy is quite varied. You can start with the famous “empanadas,” the baked, boiled slippers stuffed with cheese, meat or mariscos, then follow with the “Lomo a lo Pobre”. It is a loin of beef or pork topped with eggs on a plate and accompanied by onions. Seafood is also part of the menu. The meal is watered as it should be with “pisco,” this eau-de-vie of reason, or wine that makes the country famous.
How can you save money during your trip to Chile?
To save money, take your time on your journey. The fewer time constraints you have, the more you can control your budget. Even cheaper than the bus, hitchhike! It is not very hard in the Chilean countryside to find a driver and ride in the back of his pickup.
In general, we do not book our accommodation for the night in advance. Once there, look for a comparison of the prices compared to the proposed service. We remain freer and decide how much we want to pay. Sometimes even Chileans in the street advise us to find a good plan.
But above all, for the diversity of its landscapes
Chile holiday destinations are narrow and winding places, isolated from the rest of South America by the Andes to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Atacama Desert to the north and the wild expanses of Patagonia to South. Chile has the particularity of offering an immense diversity of landscapes, between the ocean, deserts, glaciers, fjords, canyons, lakes and even volcanoes. An incredible opportunity for all lovers of nature and landscapes, as well as for adventure fans, because there are many activities offered by the Chilean fauna.
