Atacama Desert, Chile
Chile’s Atacama Desert is one of the driest places on our planet and a definite must-visit locale for anyone who considers him or herself a true adventurer.
This breathtaking place covers about 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) along the Pacific coast, west of the Andes mountain range.
The average rainfall in the Atacama Desert is only 1 millimeter per year, but there are even some spots in this desert that allegedly have never seen a single drop of rain, ever.
Probably the biggest wish of all hard-core surfers in the world is to ride Teahupo’o waves, but the only way to do it is by visiting this small village on the south-east coast of the island of Tahiti.
Teahupo’o is famous for its out of this world (and sometimes deadly) waves that break below sea level and only feet above a sharp coral reef, providing thrills for both amateur and professional surfers.
