Beth and Josh had visited Peru and Colombia before, and wanted to return to South America. Chile was a top contender, and Beth's Spanish skills sealed the deal.
Time of Year: Early January
Length of Trip: 15 days
Travel Time: 10 hours from New York City
Where They Stayed: Starting in Santiago, Beth and Josh stayed at the W, which had "delicious pisco sours" (a popular local cocktail). After four days in the capital, the pair traveled to Viña del Mar in the Casablanca Valley, where they loved the "gorgeous views" at the Sheraton Miramar. Next, they headed north to Awasi in San Pedro de Atacama and spent five nights in a "cozy desert bungalow."
