Well, I really don't like to say bad things about anything, and this one it's not completely bad (or maybe I expected too much). The thing is, for this kind of plans, there is other options, like "cerro San Cristobal", is closer and cheaper. Because this one is just a bbq with a little river crossing the park. There is...

Santuario de la Naturaleza is a quiet place just under the Los Andes mountains, a place where you can access by car (don't need a jeep). You can bring your own food and make a picnic. There are many tables and even barbecue at some points. The place is mainly clean. The river is extremely clear and cold. There some... More

It's hard to believe you are so close to Santiago. This nature reserve has an abundance of trails hugging a few valleys in the pre-cordillera hills just to the east of the city. You access the park via el Camino del Cajon in the comuna of Lo Barnechea. It took us 45mins to get here from Manquehue metro as a... More

We have been to this park twice now to enjoy some casual 'hiking.' The proximity to the city is perfect as you could easily head out here for a half day if you have other things on your agenda for the rest of the day. There are great trails to follow, taking you along a nice valley. Both times we... More

Nature park, very close to the city, but totally not noticable.. After the entrance (fee of 3000 pesos) you come to a parking, and there is a big BBQ area near the river. Perfect spot to spend a day in summer. From there you can walk. There are several paths, but not indicated (just one signboard with a map near... More

This was so much unexpected fun! We rented a car, with a GPS, SET THE LOCATION & in 20 short minutes we were on a dirt road traveling up the foot hills of the Andes. It was fantastic few hours, with all kinds of trails leading, some leading to the river where you can take a quick dip to cool... More
