Valparaiso & the Pacific Coast

Two hours west of Santiago through the orchards and vineyards of the Curacavi Valley, the Pacific port town of Valparaiso is a charming clutter of steeply meandering cobblestone streets dotted with brightly-painted houses and crumbling 19th Century mansions. Once a playground for European immigrants, its landscaped gardens, sandy beaches and superb restaurants now provide a retreat for wealthy Santiaguinos escaping the capital.

Explore the town on foot, hop aboard one of the funicular railways or visit the village of nearby Isla Negra made famous by the Nobel Prize–winning poet Pablo Neruda.
