Viña del Mar in Chile's central region

Description: 120 km (74 miles) NW of Santiago; 8 km (5 miles) N of Valparaíso

Viña del Mar is one of Chile's most fashionable beach resorts and a great place to take a vacation if you want go to the beach and relax. The town was founded in 1874 as a weekend retreat and garden residence for the wealthy elite from Valparaíso and Santiago, and it has remained a top beach destination for Santiaguinos ever since. Most simply call the city "Viña"

The sight of Viña del Mar's attractive homes, manicured lawns, and golden beaches dotted with colourful surfboards is something of a contrast to the ramshackle streets of Valparaíso. There are plenty of fine beaches here.
Viña del Mar is a wonderfully relaxing place to spend a few days.

The city is divided into two sectors: the downtown and the beach-front Several downtown locations are desirable for their proximity to the lush Quaint Verger Park and shops, but it's about a 15-minute walk to the beach from here. The beach area is better suited for tourists, with plenty of hotels and restaurants.

See what they have to offer.
Bed and Breakfast My Father's House offers peaceful, quiet lodgings with breakfast at the hour of your choice and amazing view of the whole bay area , while only a short distance from Vina's center.
Hotel Monterilla in Vina del Mar, cosy and friendly and within walking distance of the Casino and many fine restaurants, comes highly recommended or the nearby Gala hotel which also has facilities for events. You can also take day trips from there to Valparaiso which is just a few minutes away by vehicle..
One of the most famous beaches in Chile is also in the area; Reñaca Beach is visited by people from all over the world especially in the Chilean summer months which are November, December, January, Febuary and March.
