Viña del Mar & Valparaiso Travel

The coastal bohemian city of Valparaiso has a peculiar charm that has made it a favorite of writers, artists, and poets for centuries. Appointed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003, this charming city is a seat of Chilean culture and a perfect destination for your Chile travel.

“Considered a jewel of the Pacific, Valparaiso is truly unlike any other Chilean city. It is full of colorful homes and derelict mansions that crawl up the numerous hillsides from the sea.” Valparaiso Travel Package, Chile Travel, Chile For Less

The most thriving city in Chile after independence in the 19th century, Valparaiso was used by European and North American traders as a base in the southern Pacific before the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914. It was home to South America’s first stock exchange as well as to the world’s oldest Spanish newspaper, still in publication today.

Little of the city’s colonial past survived the pirates, tempests, fires, and earthquakes, but remnants of the old colonial city can still be found. After decades of decline, the city is slowly being restored to its former splendor. Today it is home to a rich cultural heritage and exciting nightlife, with especially exceptional celebrations around Christmas and New Year’s Eve when thousands of visitors flood the picturesque streets to view a spectacular fireworks display.

Located only nine kilometers northeast of Valparaiso, Viña del Mar is one of South America’s leading seaside resorts. The peaceful and lovely Viña del Mar may not have quite the charm of Valparaiso, but it is a wonderful place to stay if you prefer tranquility and sandy beaches to the maze-like, busy streets of Valparaiso.

During your Chile travel, relax in parks covered in shade provided by old, leafy trees, take a dip in the sea, or use the town as a base to explore the fishing villages scattered along the coast just north of Viña del Mar. If you prefer something a little livelier, you can visit the casino, bet on a horse race, or take in a show at the beautiful theater.

What to do in Viña del Mar & Valparaiso

Valparaiso Walking Tour

The main attraction in Valparaiso is exploring the city and soaking up the unique atmosphere. In the morning, you can visit Plaza Sotomayor, the heart of old town, full of old buildings and monuments. Spend an afternoon wandering the labyrinthine streets. The charm of Valparaiso lies in the lack of order of its cerros, which are mainly formed by spectacular agglomerations of buildings of every shape, color and size. Take the funicular elevator up into the cerros or hills for enchanting views of the city’s bay and of the sea.

Walk the streets of cerros Alegre and Concepcion, the heart of the designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, and for many, the undisputed symbols of the city. Both are filled with brightly painted mansions and high-ceiling 19th century houses. While cerro Concepcion is considered the posh area of Valparaiso, cerro Alegre is characterized by its more artistic and bohemian feel.

Visit Pablo Neruda’s Home

La Sebastiana is the house of renowned poet Pablo Neruda and offers a spectacular glimpse into the poet’s life.  Wander through the eclectic rooms of this 5-story house where he produced much of his most famous and critically acclaimed work, inspired by the views of the sea and the rooftops of Valparaiso.

A short walk from La Sebastiana, don’t miss the Museo del Cielo Arbierto, an outdoor exhibit featuring murals painted by well-known Chilean artists. Admire the 20 murals painted on the exterior of homes, buildings, and staircases in this open-air museum. Right next to the museum is Plaza Victoria, Valparaido’s official center which commemorates Chile's victory in the War of the Pacific.

Valparaiso by Boat

There are few better ways to spend an evening in Valparaiso than taking a boat tour to watch the sun set over the Pacific and the lights of Valparaiso appear against a dark sky. After you return to the dock, you can take the funicular up to the hills for spectacular views of the city lights.

Watch Sea Lions in Viña del Mar

For a relaxing time away from the crowds, stroll the streets of quiet Viña del Mar, passing by the Quinta Vergara and the Fonck Museum. Continue on along the coast and stop to observe the sea lions sunbathing at Roca de los Lobos.

When to visit Viña del Mar & Valparaiso

Chile’s coastline enjoys a Mediterranean-like climate, meaning that the cold sea currents and coastal winds produce much more moderate temperatures than in Santiago and the central valley. The summers are generally dry and sunny while rainfall remains moderate in winter.

The winter holiday season is one of the most exciting periods in this area with spectacular celebrations around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. During your Chile travel don’t miss the Cultural Carnival of Valparaiso in December and the sensational 3-day festival on New Year’s Eve, culminating in a superb fireworks display over the city’s harbor, best seen from the cerros. Be aware that prices can increase dramatically during this period.

February is also an excellent time to get a taste of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar’s cultural life as the first Sunday of the month is Derby Day, Ascot a la Chilena at the Valparaiso Sporting Club. The famous Viña del Mar international music festival also takes place in February.
