28: Chile Travel – Santiago, Valparaiso, San Pedro de Atacama (& Other Beauty)

August 30, 2018

Chile has many destinations that you will want to add to your travel list. Santiago as a mega city but beautiful location, Vina del Mar, and Valparaiso as coastal paradises, Antofagasta as a growing hotbed on the coast, and San Pedro de Atacama for being one of the most gorgeous locations on the planet. We loved our time in Chile as we started off on this journey around the world. We still have many friends from our time in this beautiful country as well as fond memories of climbing steep mountains, walking along gorgeous coastlines, and dancing the night away in the bars. We will definitely be back again someday to take it all in again.
