Our selective listings for hotel and restaurants are the personal recommendations of our local authors, and they direct visitors to authentic establishments with local character.

Insight Guide Chile and Easter Island is packed with fascinating information on this spectacular country and its remote Polynesian outpost, accompanied by stunning photography.

A detailed Places section, with full-color maps, guides you around the country’s diverse regions, from the world’s driest desert in the north to the lush valleys of the Lake District and the cosmopolitan capital of Santiago.
