What Winter Clothes And Gear To Pack When It's Chilly in Chile

What really hit most of us (my student group from the UK) is just how cold it was when we got to Chile (specifically Valparaiso and Vina del Mar) in winter. Unless you like to be cold you should be prepared by packing jumpers, hoodies and fleeces. Here's a full list of what I packed for two weeks:


  • Waterproof Jacket ( <-- You need it, rain can get torrential.)
  • Jumpers x 2
  • Hoodies x 2
  • Fleece 
  • Jeans x 4 (+1 I traveled in)
  • T-Shirts x 8
  • Oxford Shirt
  • Nightwear - T-Shirts and Sweatpants
  • Socks - Lots
  • Underwear - Lots


  • Trainers
  • Comfortable Walking Shoes
  • Flip Flops


  • Toiletries
  • Alarm Clock
  • Plastic Bags
  • Resealable Bags
  • Pen and Writing Pads
  • Plug Adapter - 3 pin (UK) to 2 pin (European - Type C)


  • Books
  • Ipad
  • Handheld Console
  • Phone

If you don't pack everything, no worries, Vina has plenty of places you can pick up little essentials from. Stay warm, chao!
