If you’re short on time in Chile give Santiago a brief visit and take the 45 minute trip straight to Valpo. Street art, beaches and nightlife makes this little city a great coastal stop off. If walking up hills isn’t your thing there are heritage funicular railways to get you around. Red Bull does a great downhill BMX event annually so try and catch that if you can.
