Tips / Destination

It goes without saying a major part of travel to different countries is experiencing a variety of culinary specialities. Chile is a wealth of delicious, rich foods that beg to be savored by every passing traveler.



The ultimate grab-and-go lunch item, empanadas are a staple of Chilean cuisine. Find a mom-and-pop bakery and don’t be afraid to try everything in the display case (ground beef with raisins, mushroom and cheese, and even chocolate) as they will only cost about $2 each.



Chilean asado is an experience just as much as it is a meal. An asado usually consists of beef, pork, chicken or chorizo cooked over an open flame in a BBQ-like setting surrounded by friends and family. Loosen your belt and prepare for a good time.



Otherwise known as a “heart attack on a plate,” this munchie food is made by topping french fries with fresh meat (usually beef), caramelized onions, melted cheese and a fried egg. If this sounds like exactly what you crave after a night out on the town, you would be correct.


Pisco Sour

You’ll find Pisco Sours listed on nearly every menu around Chile. Known as a staple cocktail of the country, the base liquor of the drink is pisco and the sour references the citrus juice mixed in. You’ll find all sorts of variations to tickle your fancy — including strawberry pisco, pineapple pisco and even pisco mixed with Coca Cola.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.

Winter Hiking Gear

For winter hikes or cold-weather activity in general, it’s important to stay warm and protected from the elements. With that said, you’ll also be pretty active and may want to be mobile, able to remove or add layers and adapt to your changing body temperature. Consider packing some gear to help you stay on top of it all.
