Plan your perfect trip
  • If you are from another country, we suggest buying a travel insurance policy with coverage in Chile in case of any contingency.
  • Have cash available because there are areas with no ATMs.
  • Prefer travelling during the low seasons to avoid high traffic and higher costs.
  • Don't forget to check information on covid-19 restrictions before traveling anywhere.
