Our Chile Travel Blogs

Over the years the Original Travel team has been to Chile many times, and we are still rather fond of it. We pride ourselves on our unparalleled knowledge of the destinations we send our clients to, so take a look at what our very own Original Travellers have to say about Chile in our travel blogs:

Where You've Been in 2016

At the end every year we love to take a look back at some of the amazing trips we've planned for our clients, and this year there have been some absolute stonkers. We're talking intrepid honeymoons, adventurous sabbaticals, secret beach breaks, fun-filled family getaways, cultural escapades and much, much more. We've sent people to over 100 countries so far this year (104, to be precise) and here are just a few of our favourites...

The Best Honeymoon Destinations in South America

Ah the honeymoon, the perfect break to escape the drama of bringing two families together and to postpone the writing of very vague thank you notes (who did gift that nutri-2000 pasta machine?). Whilst minds automatically race to visions of white sand beaches and swaying palms, we like to think a little out of the box. We're talking South America outside of the box. Filled with beautiful people, delectable cuisine and pastoral wilderness, South America is one of Original Travel's favourite regions for honeymoons. Read our ideas below and worry not, the beaches and swaying palms haven't been entirely ditched (we're not completely insane).

Spotlight on Latin America

Latin America has it all, whether you're meandering through the bustling, colourful markets of the world's highest capital city, La Paz, reclining with a robust malbec in Mendoza, or soaking up the sun on the picture perfect beaches of Brazil. It's a region that has enthralled Original Travel clients for years with its heady mix of colourful culture, fascinating history, dramatic landscapes, delectable cuisine and some of the best boutique hotels in the world. And never has this region been more accessible, with more and more direct flight routes having been added by major airlines in recent years, including Bogota, Santiago (starting January 2017), Lima and San Jose (goodbye to the horror that is a stopover in Miami airport). So with 2017 on the horizon, here are six of our favourite Latin American experiences…

A Room With A View

We may have shamelessly stolen E.M. Forster's title but fear not, we're not embarking upon a literary critique of 20th Century English society (that's next week). We've instead been pondering the very best views from some simply spectacular hotel rooms across the planet… a guaranteed bestseller, you'll agree. And whether you're jetting off in search of a great holiday adventure or simply looking forward to some much deserved R&R, nothing says 'holiday' quite like luxuriating in the new surroundings of your hotel room and gazing out on the scenery you'll soon be exploring. Our team of experts has scoured the globe one panoramic vista at a time (tough gig) and compiled a list of our very favourite spots…

Do You Suffer From FOMO?

FOMO. Otherwise known as fear of missing out - a modern-day interpretation of keeping up with the Joneses, if you will. Yep, this is is how trends start, be that donning the latest fashion item, brunching at the newest hotspot or exploring the destination of the moment. And when it comes to preventing holiday FOMO, we've got you covered. We're here to give you the inside track on the best 'it' destinations at the moment, and a couple that will make you a real trend-setter...

Chilean Spanish: ¿Cachai, Po, Weón?

You've been to Spain a few times, you've had a couple of Spanish classes and you feel you've more or less grasped the language - and then you go to Chile…

Eating in Santiago

When people think of Chilean cuisine the idea of slightly bland, hearty home cooking often springs to mind. An image that's partly true as Chilean food traditionally involves stews, pies, and mounds of meat and carbs. But Chile, and Santiago in particular, is experiencing something of a foodie renaissance with chefs becoming more and more daring with their ingredients and techniques. The influx of tourism has also brought with it a range of fusion foods and international cuisines, resulting in numerous restaurants popping up serving exciting, delicious and very reasonably priced Indian, Peruvian, Japanese, Italian and Lebanese food all over Santiago.

Five of our Favourite Cool Combos

Question: what do the following have in common? Gin & tonic, Rodney & Del Boy, Andy Murray & Wimbledon (and while we're on the subject, strawberries & cream), bacon & eggs and finally, a nice strong wind & Donald Trump's hair. Yes, you got it; they're all cool combos, and the same principles apply to travel as well - some destination double acts just work. With our own cool combination of insider intel on the latest flight routes and knowledge of where's hot right now (in both senses of the word), we present the following perfect pairings...
