A more organized counterpart to its chaotic neighbor Valparaiso, Vina del Mar lives up to its reputation as the "Garden City." Brimming with public parks and flower displays, Chile's fourth-largest city embraces nature, with palm-lined avenues enhancing the "green" ambience.
Vina del Mar is known for beaches, casinos, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: see the interesting displays at La Sebastiana, try to win big at Vina del Mar Casino, make a trip to Cerro Concepcion, and admire the natural beauty at Jardin Botanico Nacional.

To plan Vina del Mar vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Traveling by car from Mendoza to Vina del Mar takes 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or do a combination of bus and subway.
