Just finished returning from Santiago, Valparaiso and Villa del Mar Chile.   All  three of these areas are fantastic for experiencing Chile's great wines and food.  If you are a foody like I tend to be at t ime you will find more than your share of great foods in this area.  The best grapes come from in the area of Villa del Mar which is known for it's cooler weather.  Villa del Mar is also known as the more upscale resort area with beaches.  I don't know if I would actually go to this area for beach because the waters are extremely cold and the weather prevents it from being some place similar to the Caribbean. 
Valparaiso really had nothing that I would go out of my way to go visit for and we were constantly being warned of the pickpockets. 
Santiago I loved because of its New York hustle and flow feel. People there dress extremely well and manicured. Downtown Santiago is the finacial area and again many great restaurants and fantastic shopiing.
