Viña del Mar

Viña is a city in the Vth Region of Chile located on the seaside just north of Valparaiso. Viña is a summer hangout for Santiaguinos but also has a large population of residents all year round. Although it is located next to the beach it is more city-like than beach-resort like. The beaches alongside Viña del Mar are not actually safe for swimming although in the heat of summer of course people go into the water.


Viña has a very active nightlife with pubs, restaurants and places to dance. The waterfront area is also developed in an attractive way making it a pleasant place to walk around.

Vth Region of Chile
