Valparaíso & the Central Coast

Introducing Valparaíso & the Central Coast

Only 120km northwest of Santiago lies Chile's second-most-important city, distinctive Valparaíso: cultural capital, seat of congress and a vital port. North of the city is Viña del Mar and the string of coastal towns where Santiaguinos love to holiday. A major wine region (the Casablanca Valley) and a little-known national park (La Campana) are between the coast and Santiago.
