Luxury Vacation To Chile Easter Island – Long and slim, Chile spans half the length of South America, from the earth’s driest desert to the largest gacial fields outside the poles. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Andes, the country’s long-time isolation has forged a national character that is by turns hospitable, patient and persevering. When an enormous 8.8 earthquake rocked south-central Chile and triggered devastating tsunamis in 2010, the country kept on plugging. It’s this work ethic, and huge copper reserves, that has made Chile a Latin American leader. Yet where some see business potential, others just see raw potential: this is Mother Nature’s magnificent playground. Visitors should embrace the outdoors. Seek out the mysteries of Easter Island, the craggy Andean summits or the lush forests of the south. Surf, paddle or sail the seemingly endless coast.
