This was bigger than I expected. I stopped in before walking to the lighthouse by the beach. It's very cheap to enter and there are fish pounds and ducks there too. Nice place to walk around for an hour or so.

The Japanese garden is a nice activity if you have a free hour and nothing else to do, but expect nothing extraordinary. The price is 1000 Chilean Pesos, which is okay. At the end, we felt a little underwhelmed as the details of the park...More

Very peaceful and well-maintained Japanese garden. Worth a visit if you're into this sort of thing (I spent 10-15 minutes there, it's not very big). Skip it if you're not.

Nice little garden with paths, small waterfall, birds, turtles and fish. Nothing amazing but fair entrance fee. Nice to take a picnic on a sunny day.

This is a nicely maintained Japanese style garden just a few blocks from Plaza de Armas. It's peaceful, tranquil, and nicely kept. If you are into this kind of thing, it's worth your time. Personally, I would not make it a priority on a visit....More
