Chile is a country located in the Southern hemisphere. Its weather is mainly Mediterranean, which makes every season—winter, spring, fall and summer—clearly distinct throughout the year.
However, the seasons are experienced differently in different parts of the country due to the weather of each area. Northern Chile, for example, is known for its dried weather that reaches high temperatures; the central area, on the other hand, is the one where the seasons are more clearly distinct; and, in the case of the South, the weather is colder and more humid, with a high occurrence of rainfall.
