Viña del Mar is a charming coastal city located in central Chile. It’s home to many beachside attractions and plenty of cultural activities. Check out these spots when documenting your visit on Instagram.

 

Flower Clock

The famous, and fully functioning, clock made from flowers sits atop a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It’s a popular spot for tourists to take photos, so prepare to wait a few minutes to get a solo shot of the clock.

 

Seafood

Viña del Mar is known for its delectable seafood dishes. Make sure to visit any of the many local restaurants specializing in regional seafood preparations. Try Divino Pecado for classic dishes like ceviche or machas a la parmesana, Chilean clams with Parmesan sauce.

 

Wulff Castle

Situated on the coast, stop at Wulff Castle. The historic building was built for a German family, hence the European-style architecture. Today, the castle serves as the cultural center for the city.

A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
