Family trip to Valparaíso with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Valparaíso is the base of the Chilean Navy and the center of education of this country. There are no large shopping centers with skating rinks and children's rooms. Amusement parks or water parks are also not built. So if your child prefers modern entertainment, it is worth staying in Santiago. Valparaíso will appeal to active and curious children who are ready to be interested in a new culture, unusual plants and animals. However, there are opportunities to relax with family so that it would be interesting for both children and parents.
Valparaiso can offer a rich excursion program to its guests that will fit travelers of any age and with any taste. Plaza Sotomayor is the heart of the city. It’s a beautiful square … Open
For example, you can go to Acuario Valparaíso. This is the local aquarium. There are no striking passages under the pools with marine life. But there are a lot of different fish, the majority of which are not found in Europe. Descriptions of marine life are mostly in Spanish, but in high season there are excursions in English. In addition to unusual fish and other inhabitants of the Valparaíso waters, you can see a unique and very visual diorama in the aquarium. It shows the child how the depth of the seabed and the composition of its inhabitants vary depending on the distance from the coast. Also, children can learn what ships are used for fishing in certain areas of the sea.
The child will surely enjoy the excursion tour of the city Bay BlueValpo. You will be able to take pictures of the beautiful views of Valparaíso, as well as a close look at the huge bulk carriers and port cranes during this excursion. The boys would be interested in seeing the ships of the Chilean Navy. Of course, the excursion ship does not come close to the active Navy. However, it sails to it at a distance sufficient to consider everything in detail. BlueValpo allows you to look into those parts of the Bay that are difficult to see from the land. So the child will certainly be interesting to look at the city from this angle. Copyright

Moss Eisley will appeal to teenagers who are fond of board card games like Magic or Pokemon. Players from all over the city gather together here. But it is worth knowing Spanish at least at a basic level to play without difficulties. If the child is interested in cinema and is ready to watch a film in Spanish with subtitles, then he can go to the Teatro Condell. If you come to the city in the summer months, the child should definitely try snorkeling. Even a three-year-old child will be able to master snorkeling. The main thing is to be able to stay on the water at least a little. Algarrobo beach is the best place to observe the ocean floor. Strong waves are rarely here and therefore visibility is usually excellent.
Valparaiso You can relax with children who like sandcastles on the city beach. It has the simple name Valparaíso. The local sand is very soft and well suited for construction. In addition, strong waves are also very rare on the city beach. If the child is already eight years old, then you can send him to the dive center for training in scuba diving. The course ends with a "children's" international certificate that allows a child to dive anywhere in the world, but not too deep.

You can go for a walk in the surroundings together. The views are magnificent there. The child can get an individual riding lesson if he wants. He will learn all the basic rules of handling a horse, as well as how to stay in the saddle during the lesson. The child will be able to consolidate the skills learned in the lesson in a closed arena. Here the most courageous children can try to walk on a horse not only at a walk but also at a trot.
Valparaíso The child will be able to communicate with horses also at the Bufo ranch. You will be able to meet not only adult horses here but also foals who willingly communicate with people. If the child is enough adult and loves hiking, then he can go on routes in the vicinity of the city. There are quite a lot of them with very different complexity. But as a rule, each of them has a height difference. The places near Valparaíso are incredibly beautiful. The child will be able to feel like a hero of movies about Indians here.
