Bordered by Viña del Mar to the west and Villa Alemana to the east, Quilpué is an inland suburb of Valparaíso in Central Chile, residing 18 miles east of Valparaíso. With well-developed infrastructure, it’s easy to travel by bus or car, and a metropolitan train will even deliver you to Viña Del Mar, Valparaíso, and the coast. The “City of The Sun” as it’s known, Quilpué enjoys more sun and a warmer climate than nearby Santiago, of which it is a suburb.
While you might be perfectly content to relax all day in your exceptional Quilpué rental (we won't blame you!), the city boasts many local attractions that are well worth a visit. The Parcela Verde Agua Resort (20 miles south) boasts swimming pools, a picnic area, a playground with games, barbecue grills, and camping accommodations, making it fun for the whole family.
Another kid-friendly activity, a visit to the Zoologico de Quilpué will get you up close to a variety of animals from around the world, as well as Chilean species like condors, pumas, spider monkeys, flamingos, and more.
For a day of leisure in the lovely countryside, head to Bosque Los Perales Turismo Rural (13 miles southwest) where you’ll be able to sample laid-back rural living with swimming pools, restaurants serving delicious Chilean barbecue, and camping accommodations in a picturesque woodland setting. Swim with your kids, sip local wine paired with delicious fare, and relish the good life underneath the warm sun.
Are you a nature appreciator? If so, make sure to check out the Reserva Nacional Lago Peñuelas (14 miles southwest). With over 120 bird species recorded in the reserve, which is built around the freshwater resevoir of Peñuelas Lake, birding is a popular pastime, so don’t forget your binoculars! You’ll also want to lace up some sturdy hiking boots for hikes around the lake’s diverse mixed forest landscape.
