Honeymoons in Chile
When it comes to choosing a honeymoon destination it needs to be one that is suited to both parties. Chile, with its long thin strip of land, offers varying climates with a host of different activities to take part in and has something to appeal to everyone. Whether you want to relax or have an adventure, you can do both in Chile.
If you're looking for plenty of adventure coupled with some much needed relaxation, Chile can be a perfect honeymoon location. With regular flights from South Africa, you could be chilling out on one of the many gorgeous coastal beaches in less than 24 hours. Your trip will start at Santiago where you can explore the lively streets, take in the museums and enjoy the buzz of the varied night life. For a complete contrast how about visiting the Atacama Desert where the unique rock formations will take your breath away. As a complete contrast you could take a boat trip through the lush forests and fjords or hop on a bike and explore Easter Island. However you spend your honeymoon in Chile, you'll have enough fond memories to last a life time.
Whether you want to relax and unwind or are looking for an adventure packed honeymoon, then Chile could be the perfect honeymoon destination. Depending on what you intend to do, Chile is practically an all year round destination. Why not stay in one of the many hotel resorts and enjoy all that Chile has to offer.
If you're looking to relax on a beautiful beach with some sightseeing thrown in, then Chile is the perfect destination for you. Fairly easy to get to from Canada, this thin country is historic and full of exciting things to see and do. Wander round Santiago breathing in the Spanish atmosphere, where a visit to the La Vega market in the centre of the City is a real must. Explore Patagonia where the snow capped Andes tower over the border with Argentina. Trek through the Torres Del Paine National Park enjoying the extensive fauna and wildlife. Whatever you choose to see and do, your honeymoon in Chile will be exciting and memorable.

When to honeymoon in Chile
When to go:
Chile is a long and narrow country which reaches from the southern tip of South America all the way up to Bolivia and Peru in the north. A climate which varies widely between one area of the nation and the next should be expected during your honeymoon in Chile. It is dry and hot in the north, while the south experiences colder temperatures and lots of rain. For a typical Mediterranean climate, visit the middle regions of Chile, where the rainy season only lasts from May until August. In general, Chile experiences four seasons: spring (September to November), summer (December to February), autumn (March to May), and winter (June to August). For those hoping to spend their honeymoon in Chile on the beach, planning ahead is essential. January and February are the two busiest months, at which time beaches are over crowded, prices are up, and reservations are required. And remember – coming from the UK, the seasons in Chile will be the opposite of what you’re accustomed to!
Flying from London Heathrow British Airways offer a flight to Santiago touching down at Sao Paulo en route. Approximate flying total flying time 19 hours.
The Chilean Peso is the local currency.
Visitors from the UK do not need a visa to travel to their honeymoon in Chile. The only thing you’ll need is a passport which should be valid for at least six months, and you’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days. Flying into Santiago directly from Europe is possible, and there is a well established and widely used public transportation system. For travel outside of the capital, domestic flights are available and recommended, as are rental cars.
