WHEN TO GO:

The best time to visit Chile depends on the region you’re traveling to. October to March are the warmest and most accessible months for visitors heading to Patagonia, in the south of the country.

Meanwhile, Santiago, the Central Valleys, and the Atacama Desert are truly year-round destinations. June, July and August are popular months for skiers in the mountains around Santiago, while April’s displays of fall leaves in Chile’s winelands make this month an appealing time for a visit.
