2days before our cruise - Valparaiso/Santiago/Vina del Mar

Recommended Posts


we will go on a cruise with the Zaandam on december 20th (I know still a long time...)

It will be our first time im South america and we do not speak any spanish so far ...

We now think of staying in Valparaiso, Santiago or Vina del Mar before our 21 day cruise....

What do you prefer ?

Are there transfers bookable from Airport to Vina del Marto and to Valparaiso one day later ?

Maybe I need to say we are more interested in Nature then in museums or churches :)


Thank you

We have been to Chile twice on cruises and love Chile. I presume that you will fly into Santiago.

If you have only one day, you probably stop of in Casablanca at a winery (recommend Case del Bosque) then touring Valparaiso. We stayed near the ocean in Vina del Mar.

Our tour company warned us about staying in Valparaiso (higher crime rate).


We used South Excursions and our guide and tours were excellent. Ask for Yuvonne.


We stayed in San Martin Hotel.

Thank you :D

Cause the cruise is three weeks we do not have any vacations day left, so our only way to get there is to leave Germany on the 17th of December and we will arrive then on december 18th in Chile.


We will contact south excursions - thanks !
