ISA has had programs in Valparaíso and Viña del Mar since 1996, the first Latin American site for ISA programs! Affectionately known as Valpo and Viña, these two sister cities are located halfway down Chile's endless coastline. You will get the best of both worlds as each city offers a unique and different experience. Viña is known for its modernity and beautiful beaches, which attracts tourists from all over the world; while Valpo is a historic port city covered in tasteful graffiti art and singing colorful hills. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, Valpo has charm that is like none other.
