Our programs operate in Viña del Mar, Spanish for “vineyard by the sea”, which is simplified to Viña by Chileans. Viña is just an hour and a half west of Chile’s capital city, Santiago, and sister-city to Valparaiso! A turreted granite castle called Castillo Wulff and a huge floral clock greet visitors who arrive by boat. It’s easy to get to so many places from here. The ski resort Portillo, old hippie beach town Horcon, and Casablanca Valley wineries are all a car ride away. Don’t forget Patagonia, another drive but this one a bit more off the grid. (Easter Island is unforgettable and once in a lifetime, but it’s pricey to get there)
Closer to “home” is Quinta Vergara, a large public park on the top of a hill overlooking Viña. The park serves as a kind of cultural center of its own – think Song Festivals, Summer Concert series, international Arts Fairs. And La Serena, a quiet coastal town, near a number of observatories offering stargazing in the Atacama desert. Lastly, the beach, we can’t forget the beaches! Long and winding and populated by a wide, paved Boardwalk/path that stretches for miles. Joggers, moms walking strollers, random stray dogs, public exercise areas, and more, make this a go-to part of town even in winter. You have the ocean in front of you and incredible mountains right behind you.
