Penguins everywhere (Jayne Hope)
Casa Aventura in Cerro Conception is the hostel we stayed at. A fulfilling and nutritious breakfastis served every morning. The hostal is very clean. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. Quiet compared to La Casa Roja, but travellers would convene at the end of the day and share stories. We met a fellow Edmontonian who was celebrating his birthday at a nearby drinking establishment. We helped him to celebrate at Cinzano. Le Filou de Montpellier is good place for vegetarians to eat. Took a boat tour of the harbour and local transportation around Valparaiso and Vina del Mar; a micro from Plaza Sotomayor. The beach was packed!
