Under $100 / South America

Chile’s central coast is positively stunning, and nowhere is this better exemplified than Viña del Mar. The seaside city boasts pristine beaches, incredible dining and tons of entertainment. Exploring the city isn’t cheap, but can be done for less than $100.

 

Sangucheria Travesia offers a scrumptious breakfast buffet for less than $15, so start there.

 

Since Viña del Mar has been deemed Chile’s “Garden City,” exploring at least one of them is a must. Parque Quinta Vergara is arguably the most beautiful thanks to the Neo-Gothic palace tucked inside. Next, make your way to the Museo de Bellas Artes for a look into the city’s upscale culture. The Palacio Rioja Museum is an excellent choice for anyone interested in the local history. Admission fees are less than $10.

 

When you’re hungry, head over to Pecado Del Inka for lunch. There’ll be a line, but the ceviche is worth the wait. You’ll drop $15 for a meal.

 

Begin the afternoon with a quick photo-op at the colorful Reloj de Flores, a beautiful clock of flowers. Then make your way to the Viña del Mar seafront to explore the beaches and the Wulff Castle. This stunning castle and art gallery provides great views of the coast. Admission is free.

 

If you’re feeling adventurous and have some extra time, it might be worth $20 to head out of town to the Concón sand dunes. The dunes are visually stunning and great piece of the Atacama Desert.

 

One back in town, finish off with dinner at La Flor de Chile. They serve traditional Chilean fare alongside international options for reasonable prices. A meal will cost $20.
