Playa El Canelillo

Reviewed By jennhawk - Santiago, Chile

It does get really crowded in the summer, but it has wonderful tide pools, zip line, boats to rent, rocks to climb on, calm water for swimming, enough waves for boogie boarding, snacks, bathrooms, and all variety of things you may need for the beach for sale. We go early and leave early. By 2 in the afternoon in the summer, it is filling up.

Casa/ Museo de Pablo Neruda

Reviewed By kim o - Santiago, Chile

Isla Negra is the last house he lived in before he died and it's where he was finally laid to rest - overlooking the sea. The location is beautiful, the house is unique and in keeping with his passion for ships. Neruda was a collector of things which are displayed through out the house. A separate section was added to display the many seashells he collected from around the globe. It is well worth the visit. If you want to avoid long lines it's advisable to get there early. Even if you have to wait you can spend time down at the shore or wander through the artists selling their wares along the path to the house or in the Cafe Restaurante Rincon del Poeta.

We were there in what is the off season for the penguins. A lovely boat ride, but disappointing when there were no penguins.

Pablo Neruda's House

This charming home of the famous Chilean poet overlooks the Pacific and contains unusual collections, the tuxedo he wore when accepting the 1971 Nobel Prize and the simple burial plot of Neruda and his wife.

Reviewed By KathyinCostaRica - San Jose, Costa Rica

You don't have to know anything about Pablo Neruda to be in awe of the cliff-top location overlooking the crashing waves of the Pacific, the unique architecture,or the varied eclectic collections contained in each room. I was prepared to be disappointed after all the hype I had heard and read about it but this place rates a WOW! The first room you enter is a huge collection of mastheads from ships and it continues from there. This is a definite must-see if you're anywhere in the Santiago area. We didn't bother visiting his other two houses in Santiago and Valparaiso because this was said to be the best and I'm sure it is.

Aunque no soy fanática de las playas playa Mirasol es un buen lugar para relajarse con entorno lindo y para admirar las puestas de sol. No siempre es apta para baño

Los Manantiales

Reviewed By Francisco R - Vina del Mar, Chile

Laguna formada con vertientes naturales, donde el agua sigue su curso natural. Ideal para un caluroso día de verano, en especial en esta zona que es muy cálida. Puedes irte de campamento o de picnic, tiene instalaciones como baños, duchas, camarines, restaurant, kiosco, juegos, canchas deportivas, senderos, parrillas, mesas de camping, etc. 100% recomendable. En verano cuesta $6.000 por adulto, y $5.500 por niño la entrada a picnic, creo que camping vale $1.000 más. Sin embargo generalmente te hacen un precio por grupo familiar.

Caleta el Quisco

Reviewed By Carla Q

After a day of walking I would like to recommend a place to eat, Its name is "El Rincón Playero" . Even though It is a small place is perfect to enjoy a good meal or dinner at night. Is not that expensive, we ate pizza and it was delicious. The atmosphere was good, quiet and the day I visited that place, there was a small exhibition.It was very nice.

Playa El Pejerrey

Reviewed By Thomas A - Santiago, Chile

Dado que no hay acceso en auto, esta playa es tranquila y silenciosa. Además está rodeada de rocas que la protegen del oleaje. Simplemente relajante.
