Hotels in Vina Del Mar
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.

The best hotel in Vina is the Casino. There is another 5 star hotel under construction due for completion shortly but don't know the name yet. You need to book well in advance for Vina in January as it is peak season here. If the Casino is full try the Cap Ducal. It's small but exclusive.

Vina del Mar's founding family, the Vergara family, use to live at the Quinta Vergara. They built their house there and the whole quinta (estate) was their garden. The quinta itself has many chilean trees and flowers, and it's worth the visit.
The house itself is now a museum, with some interesting paintings from this century.
This street it's very nice since it's 8 blocks long and it's right on the ocean. It's nice to have a walk. You can start in San Martin, and finish off behind the casino. The sunsets are worthwhile.
And if you're walking around, don't forget to try one of the "Bravissimo" ice creams. They're great. It's in front of the casino gardens.

Vina Del Mar is only a couple hours west of Santiago. A nice coastal city to explore. It's easy to hop on a bus from here and also visit Valparaiso and Renaca as the buses are all marked with thier destination.
Renaca, is a nice beach town next to Vina Del Mar.

I was invited by the Vina del Mar family I met in Villarrica to stay with them. I spent a wonderful time with them and I was really touched by their hospitality. Chileans are super!
