CHILE occupies a narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. And it’s one diverse place. It’s home to the driest desert in the world, the Atacama Desert — composed of stony terrain, salt lakes, epic sand dunes, and felsic lava. Southern Chilean Patagonia is known for Torres del Paine’s granite monoliths, and Santiago has woken from a sluggish stretch and it’s now challenging Buenos Aires and São Paulo when it comes to nightlife, fashion, eating out, and city activities. Outdoor sport enthusiasts can hit the powder in the morning, take a short drive, then go surfing at sunset.

Here’s a collection of some stunning images of Chile that will make you wonder why you’ve never visited.
