What to do in Chile?
After the creation god took a piece of each created part and made a beautiful country called Chile…
One of the world’s countries with the strangest shaped territory must be Chile, a long narrow country which extends like a ribbon down the west coast of South America. While the coastline is over 4,000 miles (6,437 kilometers) long, it is only about 61 miles (91 kilometers) wide.
The northern part of the country was ruled by the Inca before the Spanish took control in the 16th century. Native Mapuche people lived in the southern and central regions before the country became a Spanish colony. The country gained independence from Spain in 1810. Toward the end of the 1800s, many Europeans began to settle in Chile, including Germans, French, British, and Italians. Many Chinese moved to Chile to help build the railroad. Chile is today one of South America’s most stable and prosperous nations. It leads Latin American nations in rankings of human development, competitiveness, income per capita, globalization, state of peace, economic freedom, and low perception of corruption. It also ranks high regionally in sustainability of the state, and democratic development. Currently it also holds the lowest homicide rate per 100,000 people in South America. Chile is a founding member of the United Nations, the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC). .

Spanish is our official language and although spoken by all Chileans, there are other languages or dialects still used by the different indigenous communities of the country. With Spanish inherited from the Spanish Conquistadores and the inclusion, over the years, of local and foreign expressions, our language developed its own particular nature. In this way, phonetic, syntactic and lexical traits helped to create our own words or “Chilenisms”. History.Indigenous cultures and peoples, which for centuries avoided contact with the European explorers, were finally colonized by the Spaniards that came to South America in search of riches and glory for their Crown. The Kings of the Old Continent, the Conquests and Reconquests gave way to the country’s founding fathers. The territory became a Republic and today celebrates a little more than 200 years of independence. Civil wars, liberal governments and radical regimes paved the way to Presidential rule in the 20th century. Our country had been on its way to progress previously under democratic governments, but big changes came about in the 70’s and 80’s with over 15 years of military regime before a return of democracy. We are a sound and trustworthy country that through sacrifice and hard work, has maintained its borders secure. We have learned from our history’s different styles of government. The resulting experience and their contrasts have created awareness among the citizens that continually allows us to adapt to the pace of the world and its constant changes.
Climate. The diverse climate of Chile ranges from the world’s driest desert in the north—the Atacama Desert—through a Mediterranean climate in the center, humid subtropical in Easter Island, to an oceanic climate, including alpine tundraand glaciers in the east and south. According to the Köppen system, Chile within its borders hosts at least ten major climatic sub types. There are four seasons in most of the country: summer (December to February), autumn (March to May), winter (June to August), and spring (September to November).
