Trends / Spring Break

Viña del Mar is often referred to as either the Garden City or the Vineyard of the Sea thanks, in large part, to the impressive array of parks and water fountains spread throughout the city. The port town boasts a beautiful layout, incredible architecture and a seaside location that makes it a perfect spot for spring break.

 

The Chilean city boasts beautiful weather year-round, so rest assured the temperatures are plenty warm while we’re still feeling the winter freeze up north. There are a variety of beaches to choose from, though Playa Reñaca is arguably the best. Nightlife in Viña del Mar is centered on Plaza México and Avenida San Martín, with Ovo often cited as the go-to spot for a crazy club experience.

 

During the day be sure to check out the stunning Parque Quinta Vergara, the crown jewel of the city’s numerous parks. The Neo-Gothic palace at the center is a work of art. A couple of other local hot spots include the 20th-century Castillo Wulff, situated at the end of a rocky bluff, and the Casino Municipal, if you’re looking to gamble.

 

Viña del Mar also boasts some fairly impressive museums that showcase the city’s bourgeois past. The Francisco Fonck actually contains a real-life Maori statue similar to the ones found on Easter Island.

 

The only downside to the city is its status as a luxury destination means prices can be high. However, with a little ingenuity and penny pinching, there are plenty of ways to pull it off.
