Sightseeing

With a length of 4300 km (2,672 miles), nearly the same distance as the width of the United States, Chile is stretched across several types of landscapes, cultures, and traditions, which makes its incredibly diverse. With a very mixed ancestry of Spanish, indigenous groups, and several moderate waves of European immigrants, Chile has countless traditions of distinct origins, all of which have come together to form modern-day Chilean culture. An array of museums, mainly located in Santiago, offers a flashback into Chilean history, while a visit to “Sanhattan” gives reference to Chile’s rise to economic excellence. The streets of Valparaiso seem like a huge outdoor museum and glow with vibrant art and cultural displays. Six major panoramas comprise Chile’s topography: the Atacama Desert in the north, the Andes Mountain Range which divides Chile from Argentina in the west, Patagonia in the south, the Pacific coastline in the west, the Chilean Antarctic in the south, and Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean, which is located 3790 km (2,355 mi.) from the mainland. The opportunities to explore these contrasting landscapes are endless, and Chile Inside can organize group travel by land, air, and sea to experience these exotic places first-hand. If additional travel is not feasible, participants can still become familiar with Chile’s diversity through art displays, museums, cuisine, music, and dance. By sampling world-famous Chilean wine and cuisine, visiting thought-provoking history museums and monuments, cheering on traditional Eastern Island dancers, and climbing the hills of Valparaíso, participants will have an intimate understanding of Chilean culture and the daily experiences of the diverse populations that make up Chilean society. Chile Inside will match your program requirements and group’s interests with the cultural options and activities of Chile to ensure an enjoyable, stimulating trip abroad. Whether your group is full of history buffs, nature enthusiasts, wine lovers, or sports fanatics, our knowledgeable, fun, and experienced team of locals will provide you with countless options to discover and be inspired in Chile!

 

Why Chile

Chilean Advantage: In 2012, Forbes Magazine declared Chile the best country for doing business in Latin America. Chile’s friendly business atmosphere and stability have incited several large companies to establish their offices in the capital, Santiago, as a gateway to doing business in Latin America. With an average yearly growth rate of 5.6% since 1990, the highest GDP per capita in Latin America, and business transparency rankings on par with those in the developed world, Chile is the golden child of South America, which is why we started to offer personalized business trips (global study trips, faculty-led programs) to the region in 2012. Increased international presence and consistent economic growth in several sectors has allowed Chile to gain global recognition in mining, wine, agriculture, and fishing industries, just to name a few. In 2010, Chile became the first South American country to earn membership in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and is now ranked as the world’s 40th most development country. Chile is considered one of the safest countries in Latin America due to its high level of sociopolitical and economic stability. There is no denying that the past 30 years have been a time of incredible transformation, shaping Chile into the modernized country that it is today. Chile’s presence on the world stage has been growing, and the nation has been leaving its mark on Latin American politics, economics, and cultural influence. As one of the world’s most open economies, Chile was the first country in the world to sign free trade agreements with the United States, Japan, the European Union, and China. Chile now holds the most bilateral trade agreements out of every country in the world. The attraction of business students, professors, intellectuals, and researchers to Chile is obvious. Why not experience the country first hand and discuss Chile’s economic success one-on-one a local business expert, scholar, or government representative? With an extensive network of contacts across Chile’s most prominent sectors and industries, Chile Inside will tailor your study trip itinerary to satisfy the program requirements and/or study trip standards to guarantee an informative, stimulating stay in Chile. Whether your visit is one week or several months, we can assure that your participants will receive an educational program focused in their area of study that will offer them an unforgettable, transformative experience in Latin America.
