And This is Why You Should Go to Valparaíso

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Valparaíso is that place where you do exactly what you shouldn’t be doing in Brazil—getting lost in a maze of empty alleys and wandering aimlessly in colourful neighbourhoods built on impossibly steep hills.

It’s cheap and easy to travel to “Valpo” from Santiago. The two main companies, Turbus and Pullman, run buses every 15 minutes (!) from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and the two-hour trip can be as little as 2,500 pesos ($5).

Yes, Valparaíso can be a challenging city for many reasons. But damn, this is what you get at the end…

    • I was lucky, but you should see the number of pictures I have with just a tail or a kitty wandering in front of the lens 😆
