The climates of Chile are so varied that there is always someplace you can comfortably visit any time of year.
When is the best time to travel to Chile?
It depends on what you want to do and where you want to visit.
Summer months span from December to February. Many think this is the best time to visit Chile. Keep in mind that this is the peak season since not only are foreigners visiting the country but the Chileans are also taking their summer vacations.
The farther south you travel, the more unpredictable the weather. Most people chose to visit Patagonia in the summer months.
You may want to consider traveling during Chile’s spring (October/November) or fall (March/April). These times won’t be as busy since school is back in session and the temperatures are cooler than during the summer months.
Chilean winter tends to be cold and wet through most of the country.
You can travel any time of year to northern Chile, like the Atacama Desert. Easter Island also has a fairly steady climate year around.
