After this last year of epic solar eclipses, super moons and astrological wonders, star-gazers learned to plan early for destination trips with a view. Plan your 2019 vacation around the total solar eclipse, primarily visible in La Serena, Chile, with the help of Tropical Sails Corp.
You may not know from the name, but Tropical Sails Corp. is an adventure travel company of the solar eclipse variety. The new tour showcases the total solar eclipse July 2, 2019, while featuring nearby cities and attractions.
A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun, totally blocking sunlight. Totality appears for just longer than two minutes if in an optimal viewing locale, appearing like a black dot (the moon) haloed by the sun’s corona.
La Serena conveniently sits on the Pacific Coast just south of the centerline of the eclipse. This means visibility lasts longer — the closer you are to the centerline, the longer totality lasts. Guests enjoy the view from inland at a bit higher ground than at sea level.
