    Valparaiso was considered for a very long time “the pearl of the Pacific”. The city has a troublesome history. 

    Pablo Neruda knew why he choose one of the 50 hills of the city. The poet already had a house in Santiago and a villa at a beach on an Island called Isla Negra. It is situated about 80 km at large, when he came back from exile in 1952, being rich and famous, he moved there.

    But the most important fact is that this man was so obsessed with ships. It must have been an impressive panorama of the port and the city scene from La Florida hill. Even nowadays the tourists and the poet’s fans cross through every obstacle just to see the place.

    More often than not, the mention of Chile will conjure up images of its snow-capped Andes, the lovely colonial capital, Santiago de Chile, or the elongated shape of a country that encompasses both the driest desert and the most impressive glacial fields in the world. It’s easy to forget that Chile’s is 4300 kilometers long, which means that if there’s one thing Chile has no shortage of, it’s beaches.

    Not all of the Chilean coastline is a smooth strip of sand, quite the opposite – the part where land meets sea is often rugged and craggy, but every now and then it gives way to a lovely beach. Visit the amazing beaches of Chile, another natural wonder that this country can be proud of.

    It’s almost as if civilization and had conspired to make Chile one of the geographically diverse countries on the planet, stretching from the driest desert on the planet, Atacama, to the icy north of Patagonia, and encompassing about half the length of the South American continent.

    Chile has beaches and islands along the coast, plenty of volcanoes, waterfalls, archaeological sites, vineyards and ice caps, which is to say that if you prefer to spend your time outside, Chile has more than enough sights and things to do to keep you out of your hotel room 24/7. So pack a good pair of walking shoes and prepare to submit to the elements while visiting the top 5 attractions in Chile for outdoorsy travelers.

  • The most amazing national parks in South America

    There are more national parks in South America than countries in the world, and in the case of countries like Venezuela for example, national parks, reserves and protected areas cover over a fifth of the territory.

    But this is hardly surprising on a continent as varied and large as South America, and yet many of the parks go unnoticed by tourists. While Galapagos and Torres del Paine are familiar names to anyone who has traveled to South America, there are countless other parks that are decidedly worth of a lengthy visit.

    Some are accessible, some remote, wild and exciting, but without an exception they are all beautiful. So grab your hiking gear and visit some of the most amazing national parks in South America!

    The universe is a infinitely mysterious place, and while most people have it difficult to explore their own planet (that would be a lifetime’s endeavor after all!), others are busy searching the skies for signs and visitors from places beyond our solar system.

    UFO sightings occur all the time, all over the planet, and whether they are hoaxes or real are up for debate. But if you like alien movies, sci-fi in general, or if you’re a ‘believer’, then why not visit some of the most famous places where UFO were supposedly seen? As far as wacky travel destinations go, these places are the cream of the crop. Here are some of the best UFO spotting sites in the world.

  • The best wineries where you can spend the night

    When you are visiting a great winery or vineyard where you can taste as many delicious wines as you want, the last thing you want to do afterwards is drive or be driven home and fall into your own bed.

    Good wines are made to be enjoyed leisurely and slowly, which is why it’s a great idea to spend the night at the winery whose cellars you are working on emptying. Many wineries and vineyards have shrewdly picked up on this, and many of them offer the option of staying overnight.

    If you want to spend an evening surrounded by scrumptious wines, then here are the best wineries where you can spend the night.
