Located just 19 miles north of Valparaiso, our Quintero vacation rentals offer a laid-back place to explore the beauty of Chile! With a very mild climate year-round, picturesque beaches and cliffs, and the rolling sea, Quintero is perfect for a relaxing retreat. There are only 22,000 people who live here so you'll be able to enjoy an authentic Chilean experience and the peace and quiet of a small town!
Although Quintero is a relatively small town, there are still many beautiful things to see and exciting places to explore! Known for its lovely sandy beaches, it's easy to find yourself soaking up the sun all day long. Check out Playa Ritoque, a "secret surf beach" that's the go-to for local surfers and many families. El Durazno, El Papagallo, and Los Enamorados are also well-frequented playas worth checking out. The "Pirate Cave" is a fun spot to explore and imagine 16th century pirates hiding their loot - according to local legends, there might still be some buried treasure!
Posada del Parque, a local nature reservation, is also a hotspot for outdoor activity - there's bird watching, horseback riding, mountain biking, and professional guides to help you get the lay of the land. Quintero also has many bars, restaurants, and shopping to discover. When you stay in one of our Quintero vacation rentals, you can practice your Spanish while taste-testing delicious local cuisine or picking up some souvenirs for friends back home!
Quintero is a great home base if you're interested in exploring all Chile has to offer without having to stay in a crowded city!
The cliffside city of Valparaíso is stunning with its colorful homes overlooking the sea and vibrant arts culture. You'll find a truly urban atmosphere in the larger capital city of Santiago, about 100 miles away. If you want to see some of Chile's upscale crowds, head about 25 miles south to Vina del Mar, where some of the most affluent show off their vacation villas. Ready to try some of Chile's finest wines? The world-class Casablanca Valley wine region is about 50 miles south.
Whether you're lounging on the sands, trying some fresh local food and wine, or heading out for a day trip, our Quintero vacation rentals promise a memorable vacation that you'll be talking about for years to come!
