Viña del Mar
Viña del Mar, founded on December 29, 1874, by engineer Jose Francisco Vergara Echevers, is a city on the central Pacific coast of Chile, has become the largest luxury resort in Chile, attracting visitors from all over the world. Its long strips of white sandy beaches are a major attraction for domestic and international tourists. Known as "La Ciudad Jardín", Viña del Mar is a Chilean municipality located in the Region of Valparaíso.
Viña del Mar is part of the Greater Valparaiso area, the third largest metropolitan area in the country, after the metropolitan areas of Santiago and Concepción.
Viña del Mar is a beach resort town about 75 km northeast of Santiago, the interior capital of Chile, and is considered one of the new beach vacation destinations in South America.
It is often referred to as being the Chilean Riviera because of its warm Mediterranean climate, being also pleasant during the rainy winter months, inviting many American surfing enthusiasts.
Divided by an entrance with palm trees called Estero Marga Marga, Viña del Mar is especially beautiful where it meets the Pacific Ocean.
The Casino Municipal is located here, along with the beautiful old architecture dotted along the sea in the middle of skyscrapers.
Within the city of Viña del Ma, the beaches include Playa Caleta Abarca, Playa Los Artistas, Playa Casino, Playa Blanca and Playa el Sol, on the coast of Reñaca.
Chilean cuisine is one of the most varied in South America. It is a result of a combination of Spanish cuisine and influences of indigenous cultures such as the Inca and Malpuche.
This interesting blend of ingredients and cooking styles has been used to create many of Chile's most traditional dishes, which were later adapted in various regions of the country to combine local ingredients. A clear example is the cuisine of Vina del Mar, where delicious traditional dishes are prepared mainly with corn, potatoes and beans.
When visiting the area you must try the cuisine of Vina del Mar and discover the unique flavors of the many original dishes created here. There are many places to eat that are popular with locals as well as tourists who want to discover the culinary richness of this wonderful city.
The climate is generally considered to be a Mediterranean climate, with rainfall restricted exclusively to the winter season.
The proximity to the sea means that the temperatures of the earth are regulated by the ocean currents during the summer and winter months (October to March and April to September, respectively) causing temperatures to vary between 10 and 22ºC.
The mild climate and the lack of morning frost in the winter have helped the growth of robust vegetation, including both native species and imported species, such as plants such as bougainvillea, hibiscus and gold thimbles.
