Chile PLANE, BUS, CAR
Getting There
You can fly directly to Chile from the neighboring South American countries, the UK, Europe, Australia, North America, New Zealand, and a few other countries. Aeropuerto Internacional Arturo Merino Benítez in Pudahuel is Chile’s most preferred airport for international flights. Like most South American countries, transportation by air is the best mode of entry.
However, there are provisions for land transportation provided you get to any of the neighboring countries that share borders with Chile. 
Chile shares borders with Peru, Bolivia, and Argentina. Travelling to Chile from Bolivia is best from Arica to La Paz, while entry through Peru is from Arequipa. Argentina offers several crossing points into Chile. There are several channels into Chile from Argentina which include Bariloche, Buenos Aires, Mendoza, and San Martín de los Andes, all of these major channels have bus services that run into Chile. Border clearance is quite simple and causes no extra stress provided your papers and documents are in order.
Chile 90 DAYS
Peak Travel Periods
The Chilean visitor visa is valid for 90 days, but the Chileans know you can’t possibly exhaust all the breath-taking memorials and sites scattered all around its narrow land mass, so they made a provision for an extension of the visa for up to 180 days once you’ve paid for the extension. The best time to visit the country is from September to November, and March to May. The worst period to visit is between June and August; this is because winter sets in during this period and most tourist sites are closed down within this period.
