What is the best time of year to travel to Chile?

Friday, July 31, 2009  

Chile can be visited at any time of year depending on the activities planned during the visit.  During the summer, from November through March, the entire country invites travel. Beaches are a particularly popular destination during these months.  Even though the temperature of the ocean is cold in Chile due to the Humboldt current, the beaches fill with people, nonetheless.  Many communities in Chile celebrate summer festivals during February.  During these months, the rains retreat in the southern Patagonia region and turn sunny.  In the northern part of the country, the sun is plentiful and rain scarce.
