Chile is one of the most interesting countries of Latin America in terms of professional activities and tourism. A solid economy and spectacular landscapes make the country an exceptional place for living and traveling. Chile is one of South America’s most stable and prosperous nations. Chile’s unusual, ribbon-like shape – 4,300 km long and on average 175 km wide – has given it a hugely varied climate. This ranges from the world’s driest desert – the Atacama – in the north, through a Mediterranean climate in the center, to a snow-prone Alpine climate in the south, with glaciers, fjords, and lakes.
Santiago is the capital of Chile and home to almost one-third of the country’s population. It is a very modern city located at the foot of the Andes Mountains, 100 km from the Pacific Ocean coast, where Viña del Mar is located. Viña del Mar offers great beaches, delicious seafood, a wide range of hotels and modern facilities. It is a very safe and homely city for living. Valparaíso is the most famous port of our country, located next to Viña del Mar. The colorful houses in the hills make the city one of the most captivating.
Chile is a multi-ethnic society, including people of European and Indian ancestry. Chile’s cultural and social identity maintains traits from the past. From the Spanish conquests, European immigrations and the traces of our indigenous peoples. Our character is a result of the multiple contrasts of a land whose heart beats between the ocean and the Andes.
We are hard-working by nature and are united despite the distances imposed by geography, so as to always lift ourselves up once again. Our love for our country leads us to lay down roots and form families that are always reinventing themselves, but ones that always hold center stage in our society.
Although for years we were considered as one of the most conservative countries in South America, today we are a country that looks forward and fearlessly opens up to the world.
