Fuimos en familia a acampar, primera experiencia para nuestras hijas de 5, 4 y 2 años. Lo escogimos porque no es tan concurrido y el público es más respetuoso en cuanto a ruido. Instalaciones limpias ... more »We were in family camping, first experience for our daughters aged 5, 4 and 2. We chose it because it is not so crowded and the audience is more environmentally friendly in terms of noise. Clean and simple facilities. Shower with hot water, sectors to wash clothes and dishes. You can't fire, kitchenette only gas. Of the several trails (all recommended and of low intensity) chose which goes to the jump of the Malleco (2 km approx, 50mts of fall of water) to perform with them small. Wonderful. The nights are cold and the indispensable flashlights. Children minors of 6 years, free. Adults national $3,000, Camping $12,000 in season high. $3,000View original
