Valparaiso is a town roughly 2-3 hours away from the bustling capital of Santiago, Chile.  Many tourists combine this Chile tourist attraction with its sister city Vine Del Mar.  Valparaiso is a very artsy city that is uniquely defined by its hills.  Many prominent figures like Paul Allen have been known to drive their yachts to the coast of Valparaiso to hang out and enjoy a week or two.

I not only tried a typical Chilean dish but also tried a delicious Chilean drink.  If you haven’t read my post on living in Chile then I should inform you that there are two things that are constant in Chile, endless amounts of delicious ice cream and women wearing ugly jeans.  I have now confirmed men wear ugly jeans but I digress.

NIGHTLIFE IN SANTIAGO: MY FIRST NIGHT OUT IN CHILE

Nightlife in Santiago: My Frist Night Out In Chile

The Atacama Desert is such a unique place in the world.  To actually think that I didn’t know much about the desert until I started living in Chile is beyond me.  This picture is of the Salar de Tara (Tara Salt Flat) in the Atacama Desert.  The tour has to be done by 4×4 and the Salar de Tara is the last thing you see on the tour.  It was very impressive to see all of the unique rock formations and landscapes scattered throughout the Atacama Desert.

Cerro Santa Lucia in Santiago, Chile

Cerro’s in Spanish are hills and Santiago, CHILE is filled with them. The border with Argentina is home to the massive Andes mountains and a short drive away from the city you can access the highest peak in the western hemisphere, Mount Aconcagua.
