  • A village of poor structure, where the existing is simple. Almost in its entirety of wood and metal frame. There is no noise. There is no stress. There are no troubles. The fresh air. Arrival to Puerto Viejo is very simple. Or by car or bus. We opted for the bus departing from Copiapo, very early in the morning (Tipin 09: 30 arrival at 10:30 am exit.) An hour's drive). We immediately went about two hundred meters towards the coast and we came across a nearly empty Beach, without many waves, but with remains of glass and waste scarce in some sectors. Our goal: get to the Playa de la Virgen (whose name comes from a rock shaped like a typical sculpture of the Virgin Mary, who, by the way, we never caught). Walk, not limited to admire the beautiful view that you can get from there (and without spending the 15 thousand Chilean pesos asking the various tours that we deal in empanadas of Camaron-queso, Ostion-queso, Jaiba-Queso, seafood, and its inevitable Coca-Cola without sugar). Puerto Viejo, is, the catapult to the most beautiful beach which we have never seen/known. After ask locals (of very good disposition towards/with tourists) to get to the Virgin Beach, tell us that the journey on foot is more or less an hour and a half (there is that lead Cap/hat, sunscreen, glasses and shoes even though the latter are not so ne) necessary to "pique". You can do with sandals. What is essential is the sunscreen, glasses and something for cover, which we don't have and ended up with burnt head) and that its route is simple but charming. Asking in a local store, front of Carabineros de Chile (Chilean police) station, as we tasted a delicious breaded fried camaron-queso, make us a rustic map that had some mandatory stops: la Caleta along the edge coastal, we stumbled upon the wonderful sight: from the lighthouse. If you like to climb, this is your opportunity. The route of all forms is simple. You can see the magnificence of the contrast of landscapes between sea and desert. We continue along the path already done, eager to get to destination, but excited about the fantastic landscape, encountering us the second wonder: the vestiges which left a meteorite fall, forming a cave with a beautiful underground landscape. And shortly after walking, with the paradise that you can see a golden cliff. A beach paradise of waters turquoise, Golden Sands, moderate swell and exquisite wind. And the best, little crowded: La Playa El agate. Paradise.

  • There to start thinking about finding a beautiful beach, we must start thinking about what has been built in old port. I was really impressed. See the houses of taking a turn into a holiday village, houses that are literally on the beach and the rock formations, were really surprised. Very interesting to know.
