Weather in Chile
Chile has a wide geographic scale, so there is no widespread climate type across the country. Those who want to go to the country should first know this and determine the ideal timing according to the regions they want to go to. Chile is home to at least seven major climates ranging from the desert to the north, to the east and southeast, to the mountainous areas and glaciers, to humid semi-tropical in the Easter Island, to the south to Oceania and to the Mediterranean climate as the center.
Most of the country has four seasons: summer (December-February), autumn (March-may), winter (June-August) and spring (September-November). There are several factors in the country that control or determine the climate. As a specific type of climate does not dominate the country, there are regional values rather than average temperatures. Although the ideal timing varies according to the regions, the most suitable period to visit the country is the spring and summer period. For winter sports, June and August are also preferred.
