What to Expect
Travel along Route 68, which crosses Chile’s central valley from east to west, to the coastal town of Isla Negra, enjoying the beautiful rural landscapes along the way. Drive along the central coastal area that features small resorts visited by thousands of Santiaguinos during the summer.
On this full-day tour you’ll visit the house of the poet and Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda. You’ll see the poet’s special relationship with the sea and his collection of items from around the world. After a walk by the beach and a coffee break, you’ll continue on to Pomaire.
Hidden in the hills of Chile’s Cordillera de la Costa, or coastal range, is the small and charming pre-Hispanic town of Pomaire. Origins of the town’s handcraft tradition can be traced back to a time before the arrival of the Spaniards.
After a typical lunch of some Chilean specialties (not included in the tour price), you’ll visit the workshop of a family of craftsmen, who will demonstrate the process of working with clay.
Take a walk through the streets of Pomaire, and browse the shops for souvenirs before heading back to Santiago.
