Valparaiso is like a giant secret – South Americans know it, but it’s off the map for international tourists. In its heyday, Valparaiso was the richest, most luxurious port city in South America, but with the building of the Panama Canal in the early 1900s, Valparaiso was nearly forgotten. Until now. The 42 hills of Valparaiso crash down into the sea – similar to Cinque Terre, but larger, and with much colorful, narrower streets. We recommend visiting Valparaiso in March when the weather is mild and the Casablanca Wine Valley – Chile’s fastest growing wine region next door – provides optimal day trips for grape harvests and wine festivals.

But that goes for the desert too, where late summer rains bring dark rain clouds that contrast nicely with desert soils and a profusion of flowers and wildlife. It’s a special time in the desert when migratory birds arrive and springbok lambs are born, causing predators to gravitate to the herds for an easy kill. There are also less visitors in green season than there are in the high season, so your Namibia safari will be intimate.
