In other words, in addition to an interesting excursion program and magnificent natural landscapes with national parks, the state in South America is able to attract attention and a classic vacation in resorts.
Garden city on the ocean shore
At the end of the 19th century, the powerful of the Chilean "world of this world" began to build dachas and mansions in a place near the industrial metropolis of Valparaiso. Having turned the coast of the Pacific Ocean into a garden city, the Chilean nobility has not changed their holiday habits in Viña del Mar for more than a hundred years..
In the current century, this resort of Chile fell in love with Russian travelers. Having tasted South America, they came to the conclusion that the garden city is the perfect place for those who like to warm their bones on the hot sand, despite the number of zeros in the price of an air ticket..
In the shadow of Rio Elki
Another beach resort in Chile is steadily stepping on the heels of Viña del Mar. La Serena has an undeniable advantage over other Pacific cities in this region - the resort is located near the Rio Elki Valley, famous throughout the continent for its magnificent fruit plantations. The traveler is no less attracted to the beaches of La Serena and the local wine cellars, because the desire to taste excellent wines on vacation has not been canceled in the Southern Hemisphere.
