Frommer's Chile & Easter Island (Frommer's Chile & Easter Island) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to the Latin Business Chronicle, Chile is the third most popular South American destination and had 1.8 million visitors in 2005, 10.6% more than in 2004.

The 2003 designation of Valparaiso as a UNESCO World Heritage site, increased interest in Chile's wine industry and in adventure travel to Patagonia, plus a continued fascination with Easter Island all contribute to the rise in tourism.

Chile is one of the most stable South American countries and appeals to a variety of vacationers with romantic beach holidays, wine-focused vacations, snow sport options, alpine attractions, and desert tours.

Synopsis:

Experience a place the way the locals do. Enjoy the best it has to offer.

  • The lowdown on uniquely Chilean adventures, including Atacama Desert moonscapes, lush wine country, and the pampas of Patagonia.
  • Outspoken opinions on what's worth your time and what's not.

  • Exact prices, so you can plan the perfect trip whatever your budget.

  • Off-the-beaten-path experiences and undiscovered gems, plus new takes on top attractions.
