Overview

Fall in love with this charming seaside city while you learn and explore.

Be the envy of all your friends when you live in the one-of-a-kind coastal city of Valparaíso. Dive into intensive language study and accelerate your Spanish skills while experiencing authentic everyday Chilean life. Living with a friendly host family, you’ll find yourself shopping at local markets, preparing and sharing meals, and learning the local customs and traditions. Outside the classroom, there’s time to explore on your own, meet new people, and hang out with friends. You’ll go on city walking tours, view murals and street art, visit museums, have picnics on the beach, and go to concerts. Want to wander a little? Head off on CIEE day trips to tour a nearby city or trek a national park. Take an overnight trip to San Pedro de Atacama in the spring or Pucón in the fall. Through your unforgettable gap year experience, you’ll get a taste of Chile's vibrant culture – and also build practical, real-world skills.
