OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the Valparaiso and Vina del Mar
The bohemian hillside city of Valparaíso and the family-friendly beachside resort of Viña del Mar can be enjoyed year-round. Weather conditions here vary with the seasons, though minimal rainfall and high humidity are fairly constant throughout the year. The peak summer months (December - February) buzz with visitors enjoying the warm, sunny climate and lively international events. While temperatures cool a little in Spring and Autumn (September - November and March - May), you’ll still be able to enjoy days at the beach. The winter months are colder with few visitors, perhaps not the best time for beach, but ideal for anyone hoping to enjoy the independent galleries and photogenic viewpoints of the city away from crowds.
