Known as the "City of Flowers", Hijuelas vacation rentals have colorful views and a central location close to the mountains and many incredible Chilean sights! With a population of just 16,000, this sweet little town offers a relaxing respite from the crowded cities of Valparaíso and Santiago.
The biggest economy here is agriculture and it's easy to see, thanks to the boundless fields of flowers, avocados, and citrus fruit trees! The irrigation from the Aconcagua River makes this area lush and beautiful, and the mountains add to the breathtaking scenery. Parque Nacional La Campana is nearby with impressive mountains, hiking trails, biking, and flora and fauna to explore.
Although you'll find plenty of ways to stay entertained during your time here, there are many day trips you could easily take from Hijuelas if you're feeling adventurous! You'll find breathtaking views, colorful villas built into the cliffsides, and a vibrant culture in the gorgeous city of Valparaiso, just 45 miles away. Santiago is about 66 miles south of Hijuelas and has a big-city vibe, a rich history, and plenty of shopping and dining options. If you're looking for a quick trip to the playa, Quintero is just 35 miles away with beautiful beaches perfect for surfing and playing.
