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
Planning a few days in vina del mar after a cruise...any great spots to eat????
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.
