Chile Now Has 7 UNESCO Sites Including The World’s Oldest Mummies

(Yes, 2000 Years Older Than Egypt’s)

The South American country of Chile just added a seventh UNESCO site to its list. Chile isn’t open for international tourism just yet, but with more than 83% of its population fully vaccinated, that may change as early as September 1, 2021.

It’s never too early for travel planning and Chile is rich in sites and experiences to attract travelers who prioritize exploring and learning.

Travel in Chile

Chile is known as the place “where the impossible is possible”. Chile has a waterfall that appears to flow upward into the air, Rapa Nui (Easter Island) and its mysterious statues, the world’s driest desert, the world’s most southerly town, kayak-able blue striped Marble Caves, immense ancient rock art in the desert, hotels that look like trees, ghost towns, and perhaps even fairies and mermaids.

The length of the country is about the same as traveling from Scandinavia to Central Africa and that means widely varied landscapes from volcanoes to salt flats, palm trees to glaciers, and unusual animals you won’t find anywhere else on the planet. You can experience all four seasons in a single day and visit three continents in one country.
