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.
Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Sat): try your luck at Vina del Mar Casino and then don't miss a visit to Flower Clock (Reloj de Flores). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: see the interesting displays at Corporacion Museo de Arqueologia e Historia Francisco Fonck, admire the landmark architecture of Palacio Rioja, then admire the striking features of Quinta Vergara, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Reñaca.
