Valparaiso Chile Why You Need to Travel to Chile Now
Chile is a beautiful destination, and has an amazing culture and cuisine that should be experienced. Here’s why you need to travel to Chile now!
Due to its extreme southern location, the Torres del Paine is a seasonal destination. Most people visit from December – February, during Chilean summer.
At this time, February especially, you can expect the park to be at its capacity with many people on the trails. The wind and rain can also be a problem in the park and the windiest and wettest months are January and March.
In my opinion, the best time to visit the park is at the beginning of December or at the beginning of March—most of the crowds have dispersed but it’s not yet too cold to not camp.
If you’re feeling brave, visiting in the winter (May-September) is also an option but you’ll have to stay in hotels rather than camp and be prepared for limited hours of daylight.
Chile is a country that has seen some great advances in its tourism industry, and this South American gem has really opened up to visitors over recent years, with a wonderful range of terrain from the Andes to the Pacific Coast, and great transport connections.
Much of the Spanish colonial heritage has also been retained in the country, so whether your passion is for historic sights and great architecture, or you prefer stunning natural beauty, Chile has something for you.
To top it off, Chile has an unique and mouth-watering cuisine that you just have to taste to understand! If you haven’t had the chance to travel Chile, or experience traditional Chilean meals, then you’re in luck.
