Discover Chile: Valparaiso Region

The Valparaiso Region is located in central Chile, 120km from Santiago towards the coast. This region is also characterized by a Mediterranean climate, with high temperatures in summer and more temperate in winter and a classic morning cloudiness that tends to clear during the day. 

The regional capital is Valparaiso, which is one of the main ports in the Pacific and whose historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003, known for its bohemian atmosphere and active social life. In addition, this region is home to the city of Viña del Mar, known worldwide for the music festival that takes place every year in February. 

Another world famous town that depends on this region is Easter Island, which with its imposing Moais attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world every year. Among its attractions, in addition to the moais, the rides to the Rano Kau volcano and its main beach, Anakena, stand out.

You can get to Valparaiso by land from Santiago, with a trip of approximately 1 hour. Easter Island can be accessed by daily flights from Santiago via Latam.
