Just an hour and a half northwest of Santiago, neighboring Viña del Mar and Valparaíso are like two sides of a coin. Viña, the 'Garden City,' is one of Chile's premier beach resorts, with excellent hotels and shopping. Valparaíso, immortalized in the words of Pablo Neruda, is one of South America's most charismatic and historic ports, with its charming "ascensores" (railway elevators) and colorful hillside constructions.
Getting to Viña del Mar - Valparaiso
The Viña del Mar - Valparaiso urban area is located about 100 km (60 miles) from the International Airport of Santiago. The trip takes about 70 minutes.
