Where is tha best area to stay in Viña del Mar?
Close to Santiago and Valparaiso, Viña del Mar is Chile´s main tourist destination, aside from the capital. In summer, high-season, the town fills with Chileans and Argentinian tourists who head to Viña del Mar on their summer holidays, looking to enjoy its beaches and array of leisure activities. Renowned across Spanish speaking countries for its musical festival, Viña del Mar forms part of the South American dream as a perfect holiday destination.
The best area to stay in Viña del Mar is the central area that surrounds the Casino. Near to the beach and city centre, this area is known as the gastronomic centre of Viña del Mar. In addition to the wide array of restaurants, it is also home to the majority of pubs and bars for evening drinks or dancing the night away. Just behind the casino lies the most popular seafront promenade in Viña del Mar, the Avenida Perú. The metro, which will take you to Valparaiso, is also just a short walk away.
An alternative area to stay in is the lower Reñaca neighbourhood, which is famous for its beaches, leisure offering and cuisine, although it is somewhat far from the city centre.
