  • Beautiful water color! Impressive. We could not swim by that the water was very cold. But nice to spend the day. Don't forget to go to the mirador Indian head, which has a breathtaking view of the river and surrounding areas!

  • Cute trekking along the coast the river blue, until you reach the drawer, in the way there are different shelters, La Playita, La Tronconada, drawer of the blue, Retamal each invites a different landscape, I made night in the beach because the next day I wanted to upload to the ice blue, but the climate I it prevented, beautiful circuit to enjoy!
