A complete guide to planning your trip to Chile. Write down the tips and enjoy a lot!

Chile is one of the most visited countries in Latin America and has been gaining more and more space in tourism. Whether Santiago, Viña del Mar, Pucón, Valle Nevado or Torres del Paine, the destination will be marked by beautiful landscapes and delicious cuisine.

The trip starts with sighs as you fly over the beautiful Andes Mountains, which is even more magnificent when covered by winter snow. And there is no shortage of attractions and tours in this beautiful and diverse country.



It is worth visiting the colorful houses of Valparaíso and Pablo Neruda, walking in the Atacama Desert and skiing through the snowy valleys of the Andean Cordillera. As well as climbing one of the 95 active volcanoes in the country and discovering the Mapuche culture, the most numerous and representative indigenous group in the country in the Araucania region, 700 km south of Santiago.

Renting a car in Chile is a great idea. In addition to optimizing your time a lot, you will be able to enjoy it more without having to depend on public transport.

We really like Rent Cars to find the cars we use on our travels. It is the only one in Spain that compares the best rental companies in the world, but lets you pay in reais, without IOF. In addition, it is also the only one that lets you pay in 12 interest-free installments. It is worth it!
