Valparaíso is situated on a bay on the Pacific coastline close to Santiago, Chile. It’s both a major tourist ship stop and a major commercial harbor for Chile.
It is an old colonial city containing many an interesting European-influenced building, but since it is a major tourist destination for locals and internationals it isn’t the cheapest destination for food and accommodation. However, since it is the seat of many a federally funded cultural activity, seeing and doing things are often free or very close to it.
