Antonia López de Bello 743, Recoleta, Región Metropolitana, Chile

Parque Forestal, Maipú, Región Metropolitana, Chile
With the delicious climate in Santiago, thankfully there's a lot of green space to get outside and enjoy the wonderful weather. There's nothing we love more than a walk through downtown Parque Forestal, a heart-pumping bike hill ride in Parque...

Cerro Alegre, Valparaíso, Región de Valparaíso, Chile
One of the delights of Valparaíso is exploring the colorful hillsides that ramble down towards the sea. Take the century-old funicular elevators Ascensor Concepción (Turri) or El Peral near the main plaza, constructed between 1883 and 1911. Once...

Maipo, Buin, Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile
As creepy as these were, these random abandoned buildings along a strangely empty dirt road in the mountains, they were oddly beautiful against the clear blue skies.

Bolivia
Uynui is a desolate little town on the edge of the great salt flats in Bolivia, which are more than 20 times larger than Salt Lake in USA. Stark, mysterious and sublime part of the Earth. In Uyuni the streets are dusty and cold, and there is a...

San Miguel, La Paz, Bolivia
Okay, so it's hard to find a bad cup of coffee in Bolivia. But if you're in the San Miguel area of La Paz, you can check out the Roaster Boutique. Not only can you get a cup of coffee and a slice of cheesecake, but you can also sign up for classes...

Av Emilio Civit 701, M5500 Mendoza, Argentina
Exhausted as I was after my 8-hour flight from Miami to Santiago, Chile, my brain kicked into overdrive on the flight over the Andes as I willed it to remember as much of the awe inspiring views as possible. To my surprise, there would be no...
Save Place
Lagoon de los Tres, Santa Cruz, Argentina
On our third day of our Patagonia trek, a late spring snowstorm had blanketed the valley. We did not have high hopes for seeing Fitz Roy from the Laguna but thought, "well, we're here, might as well go up and see what we could see. Once above...
