Best places to visit in Chile

  • La Serena: This small town that sits in the north of Chile is the second oldest in the country. Not only does this town offer plenty of great architecture to explore, but it also has a warm golden sand beach. When you explore this town, you will find intellectual exhibits, such as an archaeological museum and an astronomical observatory. 
  • Santiago: As the capital of Chile, there is plenty to see and do when you visit here. You are not going to find a more breathtaking view than the one you will see high in the mountains in Cerro San Cristobal Park. This is an area where you can easily do some skiing in Valle Nevado and Portillo. This is also a region of the country where there are plenty of opportunities to do some wine tasting. 
  • Iquique: If you are looking for a vibrant city that is perfect for adults on a romantic getaway, this is the city for you. Not only does this coastal city offer plenty of beaches to explore, you will also find plenty of water sport options at the beaches. In addition, there are also several casinos that are a great place to spend an evening. 

Summer in Chile

The summer months in the northern hemisphere are the peak of the winter months in Chile. This means plenty of winter sports that you will find in both the central Andes Mountains as well as in the Lake District. A short drive from the city of Santiago is Valparaiso, which is a quirky and fun city where you can easily spend days winding your way through the hilly neighborhoods that offer brightly painted houses from the 19th century.
