Chile Cruise Deals
Valparaiso, Chile’s main cruise port, has attracted artists and poets for many years, but this brightly painted town makes it seem as if everyone is an artist; look closer, and many of these houses are also covered with extraordinary brightly coloured murals. Because of the steep hillsides, the problem of getting around the town was solved by the building of staircases and funicular railways. If you’re looking for a relaxing day on the beach, this area of Chile’s long coastline, known as the Litoral Central, is a seemingly endless stretch of white beaches. Viña del Mar, just around the bay from Valparaiso, is Chile’s largest, glitziest beach resort. Cruise ships also visit the south of the country to explore the islands of Chilean Patagonia and the landscape of mountains and glaciers, stopping at the port of Punta Arenas.
