ePristine, incandescent, bucolic, all words that come to mind when you think of the beautiful Republic of Chile. Nestled between the Andes Mountains to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west, the small South American country is set up to be a natural wonder thanks to it’s geography. From the marbled caves set along General Carrera Lake, to the ancient, looming ruins on Easter Island, this gorgeous place filled with culture and preserved nature is a gem.
