When the climatic phenomenon known as El Niño occurs in the South Pacific, it considerably increases the atmospheric humidity in Chile.  As a result, rains fail at the end of the year in the arid region of Atacama, which germinate flora exclusive to the dessert.  In addition to the interesting plant species, tourists are also fascinated by the birds, reptiles, and insects
