Five Gay Friendly Chile Hotels – Nomadic Boys

Gay Friendly Chile Hotels

Chile is one of the most developed countries in South America with a large gay scene in the capital city of Santiago. We travelled from the Northern tip of this long thin country in the San Pedro desert all the way to Torres del Paine in the South. These are our 5 favourite Gay Friendly Chile Hotels that we tried along the way, which we loved and felt completely welcomed as a gay couple.

#1 Alto Atacama: San Pedro de Atacama

Alto Atacama is the gay friendly place you need to base yourself in San Pedro. As well as being extremely welcoming to LGBT travellers, it’s a luxurious, exclusive resort with the backdrop of the Salt Mountain Range. It offers full board packages with guided tours tailored to each guest. It’s the best way to discover the landscapes around San Pedro, which rank as some our favourite computer screen backgrounds.

Meals at Alto Atacama are delicious and unique, with gems like ostrich carpaccio with raspberries. They also make delicious Pisco Sours, which is even more heavenly when enjoyed at one of their outdoor plunge pools. To find out more, read our about our stay at this gay friendly hotel in San Pedro.

All inclusive packages at Alto Atacama start from $650/£520 per person per night. You can check availability and read more about Alto Atacama on Tripadvisor.

Gay Valparaiso

Gay Valparaiso is the cultural capital of Chile.

Gay ValparaisoValpo (for short) is one of the country’s most popular draws, famous for its magnificent street art. Pablo Neruda, famous Chilean Nobel winning poet, loved Valpo so much he set up one of his homes here. UNESCO was so impressed, it added Valpo’s Historic Quarter to its World Heritage List in 2003, and The Guardian described Valpo as a “mini Berlin by the seaside“.

There is plenty to discover in this quirky city. To help you plan your visit, we’ve put together our travel guide to gay Valparaiso.

People in Valpo have a very open mind, so most bars are very gay friendly and welcoming. These are the few 100% gay bars in the area:

  • Pagano: attracts a mixed crowd of all ages with fun drag shows on most nights. Watching a Chilean drag show is the best way to get a feel of Chilean slang Spanish in its crudest form. Pagano is open everyday from 11:30pm except Sundays and is located at Avenida Errazuriz 1852.
  • Máscara: a cool gay bar in Valparaiso to start the night. They have promotions like 2 for 1 cocktails on Monday-Thursday until midnight. Mascara is open Monday to Saturday from 9:30pm and is located at Plaza Anibal Pinto 1178.

The Alleys and Street Art of Valparaiso, Chile

Valparaiso street artWe’ve got another great new gay travel blogger for you – Jaime Davila at Breakaway Backpacker:

Valparaiso is a city I have been wanting to visit for years. I had heard that it is a city filled with colorful houses and street art everywhere. Y’all know I love both of those things so it was high on my list of places to visit during my time in South America.

Lucky for me it was a short bus ride from Santiago so was able to visit it soon after arriving. I made my way there and it didn’t disappoint. Yes I arrived and the weather was not that great.

It was dark and gray with no sign of sun and was that way on my first two days there. I didn’t allow that to deter me from wandering the city. On the third day though the sun finally came out and everything looked even more amazing. I ended up spending 5 days there and each day discovered a different reason to fall in love with it.

Colorful Valparaiso, Chile

Author: , May 9th, 2013

A colorful architectural jumble of old clapboard houses and crumbling mansions, the captivating port town of Valparaiso comprises Chile’s cultural core. A UNESCO-protected gem of a city, the hodgepodge of hills and rickety cable cars here make for fascinating ambles, but “Valpo” may very well be South America’s most underrated locale.

In the midst of a tourism renaissance, a bevy of happening little eateries, hotels, and boutiques have been cropping up about town. Recently back from a five-night stay there, I’m fresh off the ground with some of the best value recommendations for sleeping, eating, and taking it all in.

In Valparaiso, it’s all about getting lost in the city’s magical maze. Wander the hip hills of Cerro Concepcion and Cerro Alegre, home to some of the city’s best boutique hotels, bohemian shops and galleries, and trendy eateries, where graffiti artists and muralists have seemingly been given free reign, and intermittent panoramas of the port and hilled city regularly peek through.
