    Nice photos. I live here in Chile, American expat. I wouldn’t recommend Santiago in winter: too much pollution. Look closely at that photo above and you can see the haze.

    Yes the Atacama Desert is the driest in the world. But that’s not the case in all parts of the desert. I think it would be more accurate to say that it has the lowest humidity. Yes there are places there where it has never rained, ever. But we have had some terrible mudslides (lahars) from sudden downpours this year.

    So come to Chile. But skip the city. It’s just a city.

    Valparaíso is a must. It is different, beautiful and charming. Hope you get in love with it, as many do.

    You should come to Colombia, its truly a magical place to go with everything South America has to offer. We have beautiful colonial architecture in cities like Popayan and Cartagena, 5 day hikes that get you to Ciudad Perdida (an indeginous city lost in the highest mountain besides the ocean, also its older than Machu Pichu), The coffee triangle its truly a somewhere you need to go, Cosmopolitan cities such as Medellin and Bogota and also the andes range (Colombia its known for having the closest scenario as the Alps in Europe) and the food is delicious and unique :). Its a place everyone should open up time to come.

    Don’t forget Valparaiso!! Lived there for four months, one of my favorite places.

    Chile certainly has more things to check out than I have ever imagined. Basically all of South America is worth visiting from what I’ve seen from your blog and all the people I know that visited South America for the FIFA World Cup.

    I have a friend studying in Chile right now and I’m trying to get in a trip before he leaves. This has definitely sold me! Hopefully I can squeeze it into my schedule!! xTiffany

    The Island of Chiloe in northern Patagonia is a must see if you are in Chile. We drove there a few years ago – it is just magical and easy enough to get to if you want to travel independently.If you are interested I wrote a blog post about it.

    And when you are in Santiago take an excursion to Valparaiso –

    Chile is already on my list! Thinking about doing an Argentina + Chile trip, so expensive though x

    I got inspired to put some of the most unusual places on my bucket list thanks to you! Although I believe there is no such thing as an unusual place to visit, most people around me think it’s a must, or at least recomendable, to visit some classic travel destinations like London and Rome first before going to Thailand for example.I’d love to go there too, but my priorities are more exotic.
    All in all, I love your posts, especially from places not so “popular” in touristical, but rather traveler aspect 🙂

    My boyfriend went there 2 years ago for 5 weeks together with Argentina. Now he’s going back to Argentina in the end of November. They doubted about going to Eastern Island but they didn’t do it because it was too expensive just to see the statues…

    I hope to go there once 🙂

    Chile looks like an awesome destination – a lot of outdoor adventures, but also a huge city to explore the culture. Perfect mix for all interests. Your pictures are awesome!

    It’s definitely on my list, can’t wait to visit, especially since it’s one place in South America that is actually really easy to reach from New Zealand
