Magallanes y la Antártica Chilena Region, Chile
See our full list of Where to Go in 2015. In a single day in Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia, we were lucky enough to see herds of guanaco, baby ostriches, and condors gliding through the sky. The clouds parted to give us a...
San Pedro de Atacama, Antofagasta Region, Chile
San Pedro de Atacama is located on the northern end of the Chilean salt flats. The landscape is a mix of ragged mountains and barren desert, resembling what I picture the surface of the moon to look like. At night you can take a ride out to the...
El Bolsón, Río Negro, Argentina
I never felt such good vibes as I did in El Bolson/Lago Puelo. One of the best places I have ever been. Days spent hiking in the mountains, drinking craft beers and hanging in the park, eating at the artisans market, or chillin' at Lago Puelo....
Av. Ezequiel Bustillo Km. 25, R8401 San Carlos de Bariloche, Río Negro, Argentina
The Bariloche region of Argentina is great for skiing in the winter, and hiking, biking and boating in the summer. A great place to stay in any season is the Llao Llao Hotel, located 25 min or so out of the main town, on the shore of the lake....
Easter Island, Hanga Roa, Isla de Pascua, Chile
I think this is the most mysterious place I have ever been. It is just crazy that no one truly knows who built these or why. Having been to Peru, I could definitely see the Inca influence on the base under the Moai. But I have also been to...
Bluff Cove FIQQ 1ZZ, Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)
"Beware of the Penguins". That was the sign posted in the men's restroom at Bluff Cove, reflecting the humor of the locals, both human and, apparently, aquatic bird alike. We reached the Falkland Islands by cruise ship, probably the most common...
Av. Exequiel Bustillo 953, San Carlos de Bariloche, Río Negro, Argentina
Bariloche, in gorgeous Argentine Patagonia, is generally known as a winter vacation spot, drawing skiiers and boarders from all around the globe. Still, there's a strong case for visiting in the summer -- the main point in favor being: it looks...
Ezeiza, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina
If you have an evening flight out of Ezeiza Airport, you won't regret spending your last day in Argentina at Estancia Villa Maria. As we pulled up to the Tudor-style mansion on a Sunday morning, our hostess was waiting at the entrance to greet us....
Puerto Varas, Los Lagos Region, Chile
Puerto Montt is known as the gateway to Chile’s Lake District and Patagonia but many travelers prefer to explore, eat and shop in nearby Puerto Varas, on Lake Llanquihue, the second-largest lake in the country. You can see the peaks of...
No that is not the address of the estancia. It is well over two hours from the airport at San Martin de los Andes and five from Bariloche over dusty, rutted roads in Northern Patagonia Argentina. But that is just what the owners and their guests...
