Cerro Caracol, Concepcion

(130+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail Nature / Park
Take a gentle hike through Cerro Caracol, a lush forested park that rewards with a lookout point with panoramic views. Known locally as the green lung of the city, the park features abundant vegetation contrasted nicely by man-made elements, including a neoclassical-style faux castle ruin. Check the website for details on whether the famed lookout point here is open, as operation times tend to be intermittent. If you're coming with children, head to another park adjacent, featuring well-equipped playgrounds. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Concepcion holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Cerro Caracol and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The view there is fenced off to protect the communications facility. The lower views are OK but only one shows a peek of the river and the Pacific.  more »
  • Recently renovated, woods with native fauna, lookout points over the towns of Concepción, Talcahuano and Hualpén. Downhill bikers and trash in between, though.  more »
  • Parque Ecuador next to Cerro Caracol is an amazing playground for children of all ages. A lot of playing instruments for climbing, swings, musical instruments.  more »
