Is the future of astrotourism going in that direction, in delivering unique experiences that take your breath away?
Absolutely, and the slap in the face that the pandemic gave us made us point even more in that direction. If all this has taught us anything, it's how fragile everything is, and that you don't know when your time is up. That's why you shouldn't fill your shower with money but with experience, and that checklist should include an aurora borealis or a sky full of stars.
What are the points of contact between Vicuña and the rest of the world in terms of astro-tourism?
I don't know if they are aware of it, but Vicuña (and Chile) is a world reference, not only because of the things they are doing, but also because of how good they are at collecting information and compiling data. In Spain, Norway, the United States or Finland, the meeting point to talk about astrotourism is to talk about Chile, because it has a lot of buzz.
Do you feel that this World Astrotourism Summit will make Vicuña "sound" even more? Will it allow it to definitively become the World Capital of Astronomy?
Undoubtedly. This is a further endorsement of the work being done in Vicuña, and will generate a synergy that will bring together relevant actors on the world scene in the field of astro-tourism.
