Valparaiso

(3.9/5 based on 12,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, museums

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. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Valparaiso and add them to your vacation plans using our Chile vacation planner.
