Over the past decade, tourism in Chile has shown important growth. Thanks to its geography, the country has a privileged landscape that ranges from the world’s driest desert to the ice fields of Patagonia and includes the exotic attractions of Easter Island. Each year, Chile now receives over 4.5 million overseas visitors, twice the number just ten years ago.
Similarly, overseas tourists spend US$2,600 million a year in Chile, up by 30% on six years ago. Domestic tourism has also shown sustained growth and, today, accounts for over 41.4 million journeys a year.
With competitive advantages that have persisted over time, Chile ranks second in South America, after Brazil, in the World Economic Forum’s Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index (2015).
