This is the place to go for a long run or workout with the local folks on the outdoor exercise equipment that is readily available. It is a lovely place to take a long walk and people watching. After our three week S. AMerican cruise, this stop was just a pleasant low-key opportunity to enjoy the warm sun before returning... More

Not the best beach in the world or Chile, but at least have a nice view for walking, enjoy a carriage tour or just laid down at the beach. It is not a place to swim, it is prohibited.

After travelling around, it was great to come to a shopping mall. It's a good escape from thr scorching heat outside. The mall is well stocked with great brands. The food court features most local and international food chains. Has free wifi.

Summer may be over and it's probably too cold to sit or swim at the beach, but despair not. Playa Portales still makes for a great walk in the evenings (just remember to dress warmly). Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are blessed with beautiful sunsets, even when the skies are somewhat cloudy. We had a great time posing for photos... More

With time in your hand you should walk, otherwise at least drive down the road and this is simply breathtaking! Studded with little unknown gems - eateries and curio shops this walk is specially enjoyable in the evening when the sun melts don on the western horizon. But the evenings can get windy and nippy so be insulated.

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to go in the water, but I loved walking through Costanera with my friends during our quick visit to Viña del Mar.

Such a long and lovely place next to Ocean. A relaxing journey either walk or drive. Remarkable view, great sunset and surprises from animals. Try local eateries and restaurants around, they are really savory.
