Squeezed between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, this spaghetti-like strip of land was affectionately tagged  "the thin country"  by the Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.  It is never more than 221miles (355km) wide, and its coastline extends over 2,700miles (4,300km).  Because of its North-to-South length, Chile has many different climates and landscapes. The climate ranges from arid at the world's driest desert in the north, to temperate in the central region and sub arctic in the south. The landscape includes a spectacular array of deserts, lush expanses of forest, the Andes Mountains, beautiful lakes, beaches, rich agricultural regions, volcanoes, glaciers and fjords. 

This wild geography hasn't stopped Chile from becoming one of the continent's most developed nations. In fact, Chile has been called the "Switzerland of South America" for its natural beauty, the efficiency of its banking system and its network of transport and services. Indeed, the feeling of Chile's cities and the manners of Chileans are strongly European. They are an urbane and courteous people, who will go out of their way to show directions to a stranger. The traditional hospitality of Chileans, noted by travelers from the 18th century onward, is even more evident today. After years of dictatorship, "Chilenos" have welcomed the influx of foreigners as a sign of support for their democracy. Prosperity is now increasing more slowly than in the boom 1990s, but Chile has one of Latin America's most robust economies to add to its already invigorating South American atmosphere.

Chile has become a highly valued destination,
characterized specially by its exotic and
beautiful places to visit, with the comparative
advantage of offering safety and multiple
amenities in tourist services.
