More Information »»

Viña del Mar is located to the northwest of Santiago (1.5 hours by car) and has about 300,000 inhabitants, making it the fourth largest city in Chile. The city is famous for its palm-lined, picturesque bays and sandy beaches. It attracts thousands of national and international visitors year-round thanks to its glamorous flair.

Try your luck at the famous casino and maybe you will get the chance to increase your traveling budget in one of the oldest gambling establishments in South America. Viña del Mar also hosts the "Festival de Viña" which takes place every year in February and is one of the most famous music festivals in South America. The city is also home to the annual national film festival. While you are in Viña del Mar, you can’t miss the well-known flower clock at the entrance of the city. You should also make sure to explore the neighboring city of Valparaiso. It is the complete opposite of chic Viña del Mar, but this UNESCO Heritage Site city is definitely worth touring.

The combination of city, beach, and countryside gives Viña del Mar a very unique character. You can sunbathe and relax on the sunny beaches or go for a swim in the Pacific Ocean. You can also participate in some outdoor sports, such as water-skiing, horseback riding, and trekking at one of the nearby national parks. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, and a large shopping mall as well. If you love entertaining nightlife too, Viña del Mar is the perfect place for you. There is a little bit of everything including cabarets, pubs, piano bars, discos, and more.
