Although I’m not from Viña del Mar (”Vineyard of the Sea,” a rough literal translation), I feel I have to highlight this beautiful city, or “Garden City” as it is known also.
The big difference I guess with other cities, is that you get two cities for the price of one. Yes, TWO cities side by side, Viña del Mar and Valparaiso, each with its own personality, and the latter declared as a World Heritage by the United Nations!!
It is very close to the capital city of Chile, Santiago de Chile, so you can come to do some business in the morning and enjoy the beach by afternoon. I can not tell you how vibrant this city becomes in summer, they say seeing is believing or one picture is better than a thousand words”, so you have to come to see it for yourself, and you can be confident that you will be VERY VERY WELCOME!!!
