Chile is a long and narrow country located on the west side of South
Just above Chile is Peru and at 1 o'clock is Bolivia. The rest of the
Chilean border is with Argentina to the east. Of course, west of Chile
is the Atlantic ocean and below Chile is Antarctica.
Chile is narrowly situated between the Andean mountain range and the
Pacific Ocean. This combination provides visitors to this beautiful
country with the opportunity to experience a myriad of sights and
Politically, Chile is divided in 12 regions, including the Antarctic
territory, plus the metropolitan region.
The official language of Chile is Spanish and its currency the
Chilean peso. Chile is a pleasant mix of European and indigenous people.
The indigenous traditional way of life is still very much alive in many
parts of Chile.
As you would expect in a Latin American country, almost 90% of
Chileans are Roman Catholic. This in turn has created some fabulous
churches and cathedrals that are beautiful today as when they were first
Chile is 4,300 kilometers long but amazingly, only 180 kilometers
wide! In this narrow country though you will find some of the most
breathtaking scenery you will ever see or find in the world!
Surprisingly, Chile has a variety of climatic conditions. From hot
and humid to one of the most arid deserts in the world! In fact, the
desert is so dry that astronomers from around the world have built giant
telescopes in the Chilean desert for its magnificently clear skies.
As you might guess by now, not only does Chile have on the driest
locations in the world, but also one of the wettest ones too!
Chile has been described as being like the Sahara in the north,
California in the center, an alpine region in the mid-south and like
Norway in the deep south.
Some parts of Chile are just simply amazing. Take Easter Island for
example or how about Patagonia. What amazing places these two places
are. But in addition, Chile also has Tierra del Fuego located at the
very bottom of South America at Cape Horn. Other amazing places in Chile
include part of Antarctica and the Atacama Desert.
Chile has some of the best telecommunications anywhere, good
infrastructure and health services. The people are friendly, there are
excellent tourist services and a total absence of poisonous plants or
insects. But most important of all, you Chile is simply a destination
that is hard to outclass!
There is so much to see and do in Chile that it is difficult to
I like to suggest to my guests that they get a travel guide book to
bring with them on their trip and also for planning before they arrive.
Chile is world famous for its stunning beauty and wilderness
opportunities, but now, Chile is also famous for its wine!
So regardless of what you like to do on your vacation, Chile provides
a little of everything... from culture and history... to relaxation and
Visiting national parks, exploring glacial lakes by boat, white water
rafting, hiking in Patagonia, kayaking and ballooning are just some of
the many activities you can enjoy.
Some prefer to explore the Chilean wine route and smaller towns where
indigenous cultures still thrive.
Your guidebook will be of immense help in determining what your plans
will be. I will also do what I can to help you also.
