  • The Valley of the charm is a 45 min approx. La Serena, and is a good ride to depart from the classical outing to the beach. It has chemical toilets, and entrance costs 700 pesos. Very cheap, considering the important manifestations molles existing in the place. The information that you provide is poor, and they could add more signs on the road. Those that exist are very worn. The trails hard to follow, so I recommend proper clothing, trekking and good shoes. In addition, consider that on sunny days it gets very hot. Water, hat and sunscreen are important. There are places to eat a small picnic and shade. A walk to beautiful, different and interesting.

  • All very nice, the guide which is located at the entrance to Nice, gives you a booklet with information. However, on the trails, there is no clarity of the route to follow, the map is very general and are not unchecked, there is no information in each cup or pictograms, we fail to find all put and there is only 1 bathroom in the entrance. I recommend you to carry enough water since there is one place to get water.
