Chile is home to everything from beautiful beaches to geysers and deserted landscapes, but you can also find many beautiful cities in this Latin American country. Most people start their journey from Santiago, but Chile has so much more to offer beyond its lively capital.

San Pedro de Atacama

You won’t find San Pedro de Atacama on the list of Chile’s biggest cities, but you should definitely check it out. The best thing about it is that you can use it to kick off your journey to many of Chile’s most breathtaking natural wonders located in the very heart of the Atacama Desert.


You’ll stumble upon many charming cities while exploring the Chilean coast, but none of them comes close to Valparaíso. Known by the nickname “South American San Francisco”, this city is best known for its steep hill location, thriving street art scene, and vibrant architecture.

Viña Del Mar

Often described as the Chilean Riviera, Viña del Mar deserves a spot on your bucket list if you can’t resist lively beachfront cities. It offers everything from beautiful beaches and amazing nightlife to lavish hotels and historic buildings, so you’ll certainly find a way to enjoy it.
