Chile is the second longest country in the world. It is so long that it would stretch from the northernmost point of Norway all the way south to Morocco.

But that’s not its most fascinating fact, there are others and are many!

For starters, this place is called the land of poets because it is the birthplace of famous writers and poets like Gabriel Mistral, Pablo Neruda and Isabel Allende.

It’s a place that houses the world’s driest desert. And it’s a place where you can still find penguins.

Chile also has the world’s largest volcanoes of which 13000 might still be active.

‘Chinchorro Mummy’ the oldest mummy in the world is also from Chile, not Egypt!

Fascinating facts aside, Chile is known for having one of the longest coastlines in the world.

Which means that the variety of beaches in this destination is endless! With the weather Gods shining on Chile, a vacation to this place should definitely be on the cards.

Whether you’re a hippie, a party lover, a loner, a walker, a surfer, a diver, you’ll find a beach that best suits your interest.

Best time to visit?
Depends on the region you’re travelling to. October to March are the warmest and most accessible months if heading to Patagonia in the south of the country.

Meanwhile, Santiago, the Central Valleys, and the Atacama Desert are year-round destinations. June to August are popular for skiers around Santiago, while April’s displays of autumnal leaves in Chile’s winelands make this month a great time to visit.
