Eclectic and artsy coastal city that is home to Chile’s National Congress. My favorite city in Chile.

Do

From wikitravel:

Local buses also ply between Viña del Mar and Valparaiso, taking about 15 minutes each way. Fares range from Ch$350 to Ch$380.

Going to Valparaiso and not going on the ascensores (inclines) is like going to Venice and not taking a ride on a Gondola, only that the ascensores cost as little as 100 Chilean Pesos (around 20 US cents).

Nightlife

  • La Torre - offers inexpensive drinks, and is frequented by university students
  • Balmaceda
  • Barcelona
  • La Piedra Feliz - a more expensive and touristy club that often features salsa dancing, mosty for the older crowds
  • Club El Cielo
  • Club Stockolmo
  • Club El Huevo - one of the largest dance clubs in Valparaiso
  • Bar La Playa
  • Mascara - caters to an artsy and gay/lesbian crowd
