Louisa, 24 Jun, 2011 Getting Chile with it
Deceptive Chile is South America’s trickster. Travel through Chile and you’ll be surprised by its chameleon-like abilities. One day you’ll be in a desert surrounded by nothingness, and the next day in a city of millions.
On a clear day in Santiago, Chile will have you scratching your head wondering “where did that massive mountain backdrop come from?”
Chile reveals itself to travellers slowly, and once the fog (or is that smog?) lifts, you’ll be amazed you didn’t visit sooner. Travel with Geckos and take on Pucon’s hills on a mountain bike, do your bit for the Chilean wine industry at Santiago’s late-night bars, see a working harbour in full flight at Punta Arenas and travel deep into the Atacama Desert on a rollicking 4x4 adventure.
Whatever you do, wherever you go, when travelling in Chile, expect the unexpected.

If you think Spanish is the sexiest language in the world and you could easily eat corn (done all ways) for the rest of your life, then what are you waiting for? Vamanos to South and Central America!

So jump on a Geckos South or Central America trip and hit the peaks of Patagonia, bathe under a full moon in Ecuador, explore the cloud forests of Costa Rica, chill out in Colombia, climb Maya ruins in Guatemala and lose yourself to the passion and the paradise.View all South America & Central America trips
