South America Warnings and Dangers: 24 reviews and 16 photos
In Valparaiso your cruiseship will be docked in just a tiny walking-distance to the main attractions in the centre of town, BUT:
You are not allowed to just walk over there, you first have to take a bus to the very other end of the pier / port, about 2-3 km from your ship, because ONLY THERE the security-checks with X-ray etc. can be done and walking is forbidden in the port-area, so there will be a shuttlebus !
This procedure will cost you a lot of extra time and you will have to walk back to the city or catch a taxi. I found this very annoying, but nobody cared about it !
So maybe you do all of your sightseeing in Valparaiso, BEFORE you embark the ship, because once that you are onboard, the time might be too short to get back to the city and take a look around !
