Few countries in the world can offer the diversity of destinations that Chile can, where tourists have the possibility of enjoying incredible travel experiences that begin in the Atacama Desert and end in the Patagonia and Antarctic territory, passing through imposing landscapes of the Andes Mountain Range and coastal areas along the Pacific Ocean.
Chile boasts more than 14 million hectares of forest, the perfect setting for an authentic connection with nature and local culture. The urban routes of Santiago, a capital city that’s earned unbeatable brand power, stands out for being a clean, orderly, safe and modern city; an attractive financial hub that also offers panoramas rich in cultural diversity.
One of the country’s most notable peculiarities is that its territory spans across three continents: South America, the Antarctic and Oceania. Its extension from north to south stretches along for 4.300 kilometers along a narrow strip, neatly situated between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean’s coastline.
Chile is also fortunate enough to benefit from a mix of landscapes and climates that are so very different from each other, that its array of natural marvels begins in the driest desert of the world and ends with the glaciers and straits that melt into the Pacific Ocean. Few experiences are as gratifying as admiring gigantic masses of ice or contemplating the clearest skies on the planet.
Rebecca loves to explore Latin America, searching for authentic experiences to include in every custom itinerary she creates. Her extensive travels throughout the region have given her the opportunities to craft the perfect journey for each client's interests and tastes — she particularly enjoys building multigenerational journeys for families to explore and learn together through cultural interactions. Among Rebecca's recent favorite destinations in Latin America: Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.
