The northern desert contains great mineral wealth, principally copper. The relatively small central area dominates in terms of population and agricultural resources. Southern Chile is rich in forests and grazing lands, and features a string of volcanoes and lakes.
Chile is one of South America’s most stable and prosperous nations, leading Latin American nations in competitiveness, income per capita, globalization and economic freedom, with Free Trade Agreements with 58 countries.
Chile is one of the most visually captivating places in South America. Dramatic mountain ranges and plains encompass this 4,000 km strip of land along western South America, creating picturesque moments at every turn. Chile borders Peru, Bolivia and Argentina, and it is the last stop before embarking on an adventure to Easter Island, home of the extraordinary moai statues.
Chile also has cultural wonders making this country truly unique. For one, although Chile has Spanish colonial influence, it also has indigenous tribes that are reflected in daily life. Indigenous folk music and festivals can be heard year around since it is popular throughout the entire country. Though folk music may have historic roots, Chileans have embraced this native music to reflect their feelings about current politics and their economy.
With an abundance of natural wonders, Chile is a hot spot for the extreme tourism industry. Arguably, the Parque Nacional Lauca is one of the most awe inspiring national parks, encompassing over 1,300 km2 of land. Bursting with wildlife, lava fields, and altitudes that reach more than 6,000 meters, hikers should be prepared to acclimate to thin air and frigid temperatures. However, the breathtaking scenery of the lake Lago Chungaro, or the cavernous lava fields is well worth the effort.
if you’re looking to take a break from the wilderness, look no further than Chile’s capital city, Santiago. Filled with museums dedicated to the arts and culture of Chile, with a beautiful Plaza des Armas town square, and a thriving nightlife; Santiago may be too busy for some, but is a lively atmosphere for locals and tourists alike.
Lastly, if your heart yearns for the giant-headed moai statues, you are not alone. 100,000+ people annually visit the tiny isle of Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island. That number doesn’t sound like much compared to other popular destinations, but for a small island with limited resources it can pack a punch. The stone statues have a mysterious past, which draws in curious crowds by the thousands.
Between the stoic landscapes, the mysterious moai, and an interesting, evolving culture, Chile is an impressive country. Chile offers an endless supply of adventures, if you’re willing to take the plunge.
