Valparaiso

Jewel of the Pacific

Navigating through a maze of colorful streets winding up and down steep hills remains an integral part of any Valparaiso tour. Home to around 300,000 residents, Chile's largest and most important port was once considered unsafe, but has cleaned up its act in recent years as its tourist appeal steadily grows and more foreigners choose to vacation in Valparaiso. Well-preserved colonial architecture contrasts with the industrial port, adding to its chaotic atmosphere. Prepare yourself for raucous nightlife and an array of restaurants, serving authentic local food. Valparaiso is in Valparaiso Region. Use our Chile sightseeing planner to arrange the details of your trip to Valparaiso and other destinations.

Where to stay in Valparaiso

Since its inscription on the World Heritage List in 2002, Valparaiso tourism has experienced a meteoric rise. The city now offers a wide range of accommodations, especially budget hostels and mid-range hotels and inns. Cerro Alegre, a hill just to the west of the city center, offers perhaps the largest range of options and looks out over the bustling port.
