USTOA’S MODERN DAY EXPLORERS VIDEOS DISCOVER THE DIVERSE DESTINATION OF CHILE

 

New Video Series Takes Travelers Behind the Scenes with Cox & Kings, The Americas to Explore the South American Gem of Chile

NEW YORK – December 1, 2016 – Spanning more than 3,700 miles along the western coast of South America, Chile’s vast landscape includes rainforest, desert, mountains, coastal shores and Antarctic territory all with a rich heritage of native Chilean and Spanish influences. In the debut of the Modern Day Explorer in Chile video series, the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) gives travelers an inside look at what makes Chile one of the most diverse destinations in the world.

 

The three-part video series follows Rebecca Rhyan as she explores local experiences and activities to include in upcoming Cox & Kings, The Americas Chilean itineraries. Created in partnership with Turismo Chile, Cox & Kings, The Americas and LATAM Airlines, the videos highlight Rebecca’s journey to visit culturally significant places like the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Chonchi Church, horseback ride with a Chilean gaucho, discover the vibrant street art of Valparaíso, enjoy locally-crafted wine paired with breathtaking views and indulge in the local cuisine in Santiago.

 

Inspired travelers can find their ideal Chilean itinerary by clicking here or search a multitude of other itineraries by using the “Find Your Dream Vacation” section of the USTOA homepage. The resulting options provide details on the length of trip, itineraries, dates, and prices for a range of trips.

 

The Chile videos are the newest installment in USTOA’s ongoing Modern Day Explorers series, a curated collection of in-depth videos and blog posts that introduces wanderlusters to the individuals responsible for scouting undiscovered travel experiences in new and emerging destinations and rediscovering what’s new in beloved places.
