Chile is one of the most unique countries in South America. Stretching from the bottom of the continent upwards, the nation has many varied climates. Chile is home to the Atacama Desert, Patagonia, a volcano and the cities of Santiago and Valparaiso. I spent time abroad in Chile, and I have made a list of recommendations for travel destinations throughout the wonderful country.
- Santiago: The nation’s capitol is called Santiago, and it is home to much hustle and bustle. From economic development to banking to artists, the city is bursting with unique individuals.
- Wine country: Chile is known for its impeccable wine making. Cousiño Macul is the oldest vineyard in Chile, and I would recommend you tour it if you have the chance.
- Valparaiso: Valpo, as the locals call it, is a vibrant city filled with murals and hills. Think of it as the San Francisco of South America. While walking the streets, you can see street artists, taste yummy street food, and observe the busy cities’ unique aura.
- Atacama Desert: Known for being one of the driest places in the world, the Atacama Desert is a beautiful place to visit while traveling through Chile. While here, you can see stars, as well as the dry desert landscapes.
