Chile's wine country: a spirit worth bottling

SWIMMING IN BAHIA INGLESA. This beach in the Atacama region is not only beautiful, with nice white sand, but it has something rare for a Chilean beach—warm water! If youve spent any time in Chile, you understand why that is an exciting thing. Im choosing to imagine myself here today

Stayed for a while in Chile, and just fell in love with the "Bahía Inglesa's" water color !

KAYAKING IN LAGUNA SAN RAFAEL Glacier lake at the end of the earth! Maybe I will do this on the same trip as Capilla de marmol as they are near each other (see map). Navimag ferries has a cruise that goes here from Chiloe, but its a little pricey. I am thinking about trying to get here by humbler travel methods. Regardless, its a Chile must see.

After living some time in Santiago, Chile, I have decided to create a Chile travel wish list to keep up with all the places I must see in this beautiful country before I leave.

EL DESIERTO FLORIDO Once in a while, if there is an unusual amount of rain in the driest desert in the world (Atacama), more than 200 varieties of dormant flower bulbs bloom and cover the desert sands from Vallenar north to Copiapo. It`s rare, and most Chileans have never even seen it. When it happens, it`s between September and November. It happened last year, and I`m feeling lucky. Planning a trip soon

Unusually heavy spring rains in the Atacama Desert create a stunning natural phenomenon known as desierto florido, which means "flowering desert" in Spanish.
