When you first arrive in Valparaiso, you’ll notice the hills and the colors of the houses. This beautiful seaport city is recognized for its bright colors. Gazing at the hills and seeing the lively colors make you wonder why every city doesn’t have such wonderfully bright colors on their houses. The houses are all different colors because it is a seaport so most of locals have boats which are painted bright colors. They use the extra paint from the boats to paint their houses.
As I mentioned earlier, it is very hilly. The locals do not have to walk up the hills every time. Sometimes they use elevators. These are very cheap and easy to use.
Go down to Valparaiso’s port and hop on a boat for about 3,000 pesos
I did Tours4tips. These guys dress up in red and white strips like, Where`s Wally (Waldo). My tour was supposed to last three hours but it lasted maybe an hour and a half but it was raining outside and cold. The tour guides were nice but I felt like we didn´t go very far and didn´t see very much. At the end, it was kind of awkward when they were waiting for their tips without wanting to ask for it.
