Un apacible lugar para encontrarse con la naturaleza, donde podrás avistar gansos salvajes y cisnes de cuello negro en su lugar de nidificación. Buen lugar para comprar sal de mar a buen precio. Faltan lugares donde comer y más aún, baños públicos. A peaceful place...More

You must take a ride to Cahuil. Dont even bother going all the way to Bucalemu, just allow plenty time to enjoy the ride along the lake, take as may pictures as you can from swans, ducks, donkeys, horses, beautiful trees and stop in the...More
