Traveling to Chile makes for a robust, exciting and adventurous vacation. Chile travel comprises diverse offerings, from traveling to Chile's cities, including Santiago and Valparíso, ecotourism, exploring Chile's wine regions and, of course, finding romance in it all. This Chile travel guide will help you plan your Chile travel, whether you want to explore a city or relax on a beach.
Chile is an amazing and diverse country; from north to south tip the best times to visit vary with the region. Visit the north of the country throughout the year, but expect unpredictable rain (the Bolivian Winter) between December and February in the middle of summer. These rains wash away roads and communication lines on the antiplano. The centre and south are perfect for skiing from June to September, but heavy snowfall closes entrances to many of the national parks. January and February are peak times, but you'll find lower rates and fewer crowds during November, December, or March, and the weather during these times is almost as good.

Begin your Chile vacation in cosmopolitan Santiago, set in a valley between the Andes Mountains and the Chilean Coastal Range. The Mediterranean-like climate allows for beautiful days and pleasant nights to stroll Santiago's chic centers and bustling districts, boasting incredible culture, restaurants and museums. A Santiago vacation wouldn't be complete without visits to the city's more iconic spots, including Mercado Central, a massive food market set in an art nouveau building; Palacio de la Real Audiencia, Chile's national history museum; the Belle Arts Museum/Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, for a double dose of fine and modern art; and the bohemian Bellavista neighborhood for eclectic shopping and restaurants set in quaint, vintage buildings.
