Day 3 - 'Valparisio and Vina del Maar: CLP 40,000 for 2 person' You can totally do this sight seeing on your own without booking with a travel agency but we wanted a hassle free tour so opted for an agency. Valparisio is the port city of Chile with beautiful views of the city and port from the view points. There is not much to do in Valparisio but it is an absolute delight for all graffiti fans. Valaprisio has stunning wall-size graffitis painted across multiple street/lane walls. Although not maintained but still the graffitis are perfect spots for beautiful pictures or just admiring and applauding the artists. There is no specific lane/street to find the graffitis because they are mostly spread across the town, but from what I read, the best ones are in the open air museum or top of the hills (reachable by funiculars). Besides that there is a naval museum (a good view point) and restaurants to enjoy the Chilean wine, Pisco sour (a chilean alcoholic cocktail), and food.
About San Felipe
Casco Viejo (aka Casco Antiquo) is the original Panama City. In 1997, it was granted status as a UNESCO World Heritage site. One of the highlights of visiting Casco Viejo now is that you can see a city in the midst of transformation. Squatters have lived here since the 1970s when Noriega let them settle in for free, and they have powered their homes by tapping into power and phone lines belonging to hotels and businesses. But the government is currently moving telephone and power lines underground to encourage squatters to relocate. Casco makes a great home base for exploring Panama City. Don’t miss taking a walk on the Amador Causeway, grabbing a bite at Super Gourmet, Tantalo Kitchen or Manolo Caracol, having a drink at the Rooftop Bar at Tantalo Hotel or going salsa dancing at Havana Panama.
