  • It is a very nice place that you can visit. It is fairly quiet and beautiful landscape photographs can be taken.

  • This is a pleasant place to visit, I recommend going in the summer since I went in October and the weather was still ugly. It is cute but I wasn't surprised.

Where to stay in Valdivia

Valdivia boasts a range of accommodations befitting a regional capital. The hub of activity has traditionally centered around the Calle-Calle River, with many of the longer-established resorts and hotels located on the water or just a street or two back. That said, the inland areas of town also offer a diverse set of lodgings. Look around Plaza de los Rios for some of the city's trendier boutiques, along with a good number of simple and charming guesthouses.
