The Republic of Chile is a long and narrow coastal strip on the western side of the South American continent, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains. It borders Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. Its climatic regions differ vastly and include the driest desert in the world (Atacama) in the north, and an Alpine climate in the south. First settled by migrating Native Americans, then ruled by the Inca and later colonized by the Spanish, Chile is today one of South America's wealthiest and most stable nations, it measures highly in all manner of international rankings. Chile prides itself on its nickname of "Country of Poets" and was home to Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral, two Nobel Prize winners. Tourism has grown steadily in the last few decades and there are countless awesome natural sights to behold, e.g. the Valley of the Moon, Chungará Lake, the Parinacota and Pomerape volcanos, Patagonia, and Easter Island, to name but a few. Summer is from December to March, when locals concentrate in the coastal beach towns in the north or in the region around Valparaiso.
