UFO tourism in Chile


Tourism officials in Chile have decided to cater for visitors who are intrigued about aliens, extraterrestrials or space ships. It is opening a UFO trail around the town of San Clemente which is known for UFO appearances. The trail is 30 km long and goes through places where UFOs have been reportedly spotted, according to the

The Chile tourism service, Sernatur, supports the initiative, although they do not guarantee sightings of UFOs.

According to UFO experts hundreds of UFOs have been spotted in San Clemente since the mid-1990s. An exceptionally interesting place for UFO watchers is El Enladrillado, which is a flat zone of huge volcanic blocks said to be a UFO landing pad. El Enladrillado is approximately 60 kilometres from San Clemente and it is accessible only on foot.

The trail may become an important tourism attraction, and those that do not see any alien behaviour can take comfort in trekking in an area of huge biological value.

UFO spotters can also travel further north to neighboring Peru to see its Nazca Lines. These are gigantic drawings on the ground that can be seen as a whole only from the air.
