Garden City

A more organized counterpart to its chaotic neighbor Valparaiso, Vina del Mar lives up to its reputation as the "Garden City." Brimming with public parks and flower displays, Chile's fourth-largest city embraces nature, with palm-lined avenues enhancing the "green" ambience.
On the 14th (Tue), delve into the distant past at Moai, then admire the natural beauty at Jardin Botanico Nacional, then don't miss a visit to Flower Clock (Reloj de Flores), and finally examine the collection at Corporacion Museo de Arqueologia e Historia Francisco Fonck. Here are some ideas for day two: relax in the rural setting at Campo Educativo, don't miss a visit to Costanera, and then kick back and relax at Reñaca.

You can plan Vina del Mar trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Land of Poets
Squeezed between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, geographically diverse Chile is a long, thin stretch of land encompassing some of the world's driest deserts in the north, and some of its largest glacial fields in the south. Though most Chile holidays include some form of adventure in the vast wilderness areas, the country also contains charming cities providing plenty of urban things to do and see. Many tours of Chile include at least a brief visit to the country's lush wine regions, where backyard vineyards compete with sprawling estates producing some of the world's most respected whites and reds.
