Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Get out of town with these interesting Santiago side-trips: Concha y Toro (in Pirque) and Valle Nevado - Ski Resort Chile (in Valle Nevado). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from San Cristóbal Hill, explore the world behind art at Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, hunt for treasures at Central Market (Mercado Central), and browse the different shops at Costanera Center.

Navigating through a maze of colorful streets winding up and down steep hills remains an integral part of any Valparaiso tour.
Get out of town with these interesting Valparaiso side-trips: Emiliana Organic Vineyards (in Casablanca), Canopy El Canelo (in Algarrobo) and Casa de Isla Negra (in Isla Negra). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at La Sebastiana, don't miss a visit to Flower Clock (Reloj de Flores), enjoy the sand and surf at Reñaca, and get great views at Paseo Yugoslavo.

Coyhaique ©
Founded in 1929, Coyhaique is a young city--a baby by world standards--developed from humble agricultural origins to become the capital and main hub of the largely rural Aysen Region.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Coyhaique: Parque Aiken del Sur (in Puerto Chacabuco), Puerto Aisen (Cascada del Leon, Presidente Ibanez Bridge, & more) and Villa Cerro Castillo (Cerro Castillo, Museo Escuela - Paredón Las Manos, & more). On the 4th (Sat), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Reserva Nacional Cerro Castillo. Spend the 3rd (Fri) surrounded by wildlife at Coyhaique National Reserve. There's much more to do: relax in the rural setting at Fundo Panguilemu, get engrossed in the history at Museo Regional de Aysen, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, and explore the striking landscape at Fjord Quitralco.

Plan my trip to Coyhaique with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Do a combination of shuttle and flight from Valparaiso to Coyhaique in 6 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of bus and taxi. Traveling from Valparaiso in January, plan for a bit cooler nights in Coyhaique, with lows around 10°C. On the 19th (Sun), you'll travel to Santiago.
