For the second successive year, the country managed to draw more than 2.3 million foreign visitors, which is the highest number for the last six years.

According to Pardo, the amount of arrivals beat those of 2008 by more than 40%. Since January to August of 2013, Chile received 2.35 million foreign tourists, which is 1.1% fewer than during the same period in 2012.

The decline in the number of tourists during July-August 2013 was caused by the drop in arrivals of Peruvian (-12%), Brazilian (-7%), American (-5%) as well as Argentinian (-3.1%) tourists. Yet, Pardo highlighted the number of Bolivians (+7.4%) and Colombians (+6.5%), while the European tourist influx improved by about 3%, influenced greatly by the massive arrivals of Spanish (+8.1) and French (+5.5%) visitors.

The downfall in arrivals to Chile contrasts with the noteworthy boost of tourism numbers in the neighboring countries, such as Peru with 11% more visitors, Colombia, Paraguay, Bolivia and Ecuador, all with grow rates over 5%.
