Planning to travel to South America? What about the North of Chile?

Chile is an easy country to visit. For U.S. citizens entering Chile must have a valid passport. U.S. citizens traveling to Chile for recreation, tourism, business, or academic conferences do not need to obtain a visa prior to their arrival in Chile. A Tourist Card will be issued for a stay of up to 90 days.

Santiago is the capital of Chile; it’s a cosmopolitan city with excellent hotels, restaurants, bars and shopping from tiny boutique and craft fairs to giant shopping malls. There are many social and cultural attractions such as art galleries, museums, theaters, opera and ballet, lively nightlife, parks, etc.

Because Chile is a very long piece of land, its extremes are very different; the North is hot and the South is freezing. Well, if you prefer places plenty of sun, certainly the north should be your destination.

In the North of Chile there are thousand of impressive places for visiting and we would like to recommend one: San Pedro de Atacama. Here you can find unique regions like Valle de la Luna, flamingo populations, and sand dunes. For one of the most spectacular places to spend a sunset, do not skip the desert.

The following video is a 360-degree video compilation about the driest desert in the World, the Atacama Desert. To enjoy this immersive video, please click on the video and move it in any direction to watch everything around. If you are using a mobile device, simply drag and drop with your finger to move the point of view of the video  Enjoy it!

 

Because we know that is difficult to image a place like this before to travel but we would like to recommend a website where you can visit “virtually” this place in www.chilein360.com. For sure, you will like to be there in your next vacations.

El Tatio Geysers

El Tatio Geysers

El Tatio is ringed by volcanoes and fed by over 80 gurgling geysers and a hundred gassy fumaroles. Contrary to popular opinion it is not the world’s largest geyser field, but the third largest. The best time to see the geysers is 06:00, so make sure you wipe the sleep from your eyes if you want experience the awesome spectacle. Check it the most amazing Oasis in the dessert.

Watch your step – in some places, visitors have fallen through the thin crust into underlying pools of scalding water and suffered severe burns. Dress in layers: it’s toe-numbingly cold at sunbreak but you’ll bake in the van on the way back down.
