The Perfect One Day Itinerary in Valparaiso, Chile

The Perfect One Day Itinerary in Valparaiso, Chile, Valparaiso, Chile (B)

As I recently said in an Instagram post, Valparaíso has become my favorite big city in all of Chile (sorry Santiago). It’s located right on the coast and such a quirky, colorful place. I never get tired of wandering the maze-like narrow streets of Cerro Alegre or sipping sweet Ají sours out on a scenic terrace overlooking the harbor.

Valpo (as the locals call it) is a typical touristy day trip from Santiago, and so after many requests for info on this city, I finally decided to craft this guide. I myself have done the trip many times on the weekends, and after lots of experimenting and testing, I like to think I’ve near perfected my itinerary.

If you happen to be arriving to Valparaíso in the morning or have stayed over the night before, I would suggest getting as early of a start as possible to take full advantage of the day. Unfortunately, Chile’s culture wasn’t exactly designed for early risers, so you won’t find much open (not even coffee shops) before 10 AM. Very strange for this New Yorker. ......
