The day will become night for more than two minutes in the skies of Chile next Tuesday, July 2. Atacama and Coquimbo will be the regions where this phenomenon will be observed with 100 and 95% of visibility, respectively.

- Domeyko (Atacama region): It is the best place in terms of visualization, but the eclipse will only be seen 22 seconds.
- Cachiyuyo (Atacama region): It is an excellent place to get with your camper, as it has low hills and little cloudiness.
- Posada El Escorial (Atacama region): It has hills that will offer you a postcard image, as well as scarce cloudiness.
- La Silla Observatory aerodrome (Coquimbo region): It was established by the Foundation as the best place to establish a "base camp".
- Incahuasi (Atacama region): in this area the eclipse will be seen for a long time.
- Entre Pircas (Atacama region): It will have the same conditions as La Higuera, but with less cloud cover.
- La Higuera (Coquimbo region): The eclipse will reach its maximum duration in this area, but being close to the coast could present cloudiness.

Team Building Holiday Rent
In September 2018 we went with Holiday Rent RV on expedition, this time to Patagonia. We wanted to live the experience of our clients and all aspects of traveling by camper. We can say this trip was a great experience and success: we enjoyed nature, its flora and fauna, wild camped and so on. Also we had to deal with unforseen circumstances that happen on the way like we got stuck in the snow, had to use 4x4 for multiple routes and needed to replace a broken tire.
As if it was not enough we also conducted several tests related to teambuilding and our work. We drove blindfolded over a bridge, trusting a colleague who was giving the directions. We caught fish and did some shooting exercises and practised how to survive in nature. It was a trip to remember for a long time, where we got to know each other better as a team but above all the great experience of traveling by camper and explore our beautiful country Chile.
Chile has incomparable nature with an infinity of landscapes and destinations on offer, which we definitely recommend you visit at least once in your lifetime.
