      What to do on Christmas Day

      Chile Nov 9, 2016 at 9:28 AM

      A friend and I are coming to Santiago on Dec 24th on a cruise ship. We will be there until Dec 28th. What should we do on Christmas Day. Probably nothing will be open but hopefully we can find an open restaurant. Also we are being picked up at the terminal and transferred to Santiago with a tour of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar and at Casablanca Valley, we can visit Kingston Family and/or Matetic Vineyards. Which would be best Any other suggestions between Valparaiso and Santiago.

      Wine Tours

      Santiago Nov 12, 2016 at 8:45 AM

      We appreciate the wines of Chile but have been to California, Finger Lakes & Long Island Wineries. We will be in Valparaiso & Santiago for a week this December. We think we'd like to visit a winery & see some tours that are a full day. I'd hate to miss seeing other things in this region, are there wineries closer to Santiago where we can spend a half a day? Any thoughts re. the time in Chile's wine region? Is it a must see & do?

      Best Scenery in Southern Chile

      Chile Nov 7, 2016 at 10:04 AM

      I am hoping to visit Chile in February or March next year. As well as central Chile I hope to visit one of the national parks in the south, either Torres del Paine or else San Rafael/Aysen.

      I am looking for a balance of nature by which I mean some fjords, some glaciers and some animals and birds too, rather than 100% of any one of these things.

      Does anyone have a preference for either of these areas, and if so, why?

      I appreciate that there is a lot of info on this website about both areas, but I have found it a bit difficult to get the big picture on just the basics.

      by onthego43 Online Now Feb 22, 2006 at 5:42 PM

      We will be on a cruise that begins in Valparaiso on January 11, 2007. We fly in to Santiago and were wondering if it is better to stay in Santiago one night and tour the city some, then take a transfer tour to Valparaiso the next day to board the ship or would it be better to just get of the plane, tour Santiago and then transfer to Valparaiso and spend the night and get on the ship the next day? We will have had a 9 hour flight that lands in Santiago about 9:00 am. The ship leaves Jan 11 at 5:00 pm.
      Thanks for your help and thoughts

      We are a Belgian retired couple wanting to rent a furnished apartment in Vina del Mar from November 27th 2005 till January 1st 2006, possibly even a month longer. We would like the apartment to have at least one separate bedroom and offer necessary standards of comfort. If possible, with seaview and not too far from shopping and restaurants. Looking at the Vina map, we were thinking about Avenidas Peru or Martin, or is this location too expensive at that time of year? Thank you for any suggestions, tips or offers!

      My husband & I will be cruising out of Valpariso in January 2006, but need to spend one night in Vina del Mar. We hear it's a lovely area, but are very confused as to where we should stay. Also, my husband must have air conditioning and we noticed that most hotels either don't have it at all or just omit it from their listing of amenities. Anyone with hotel information is requested. Price is not necessarily an issue. Thank you.
