  • Nothing as be in some of the valleys of the North of Chile, close them eyes and let that the Sun you entreguesu energies and the wind sing in your ears. Precious landscapes, delicious food and the relaxation of noisy silence that allows you to hear your own thoughts. Remarkable landscapes offered by the reservoir Puclaro, Pisco small but beautiful square, singing wind in Paihuano and vicuña with sculptures in the central square... To test; a delicious lunch in the solar cookers in Paihuano, cupao in the reservoir Puclaro ice cream and the maquisour of the ABA Pisco. EYE! with the butts offered by MOON MAGIC TOUR, trying to make the reservation, indicate that they are not made via telephone and arriving to the module installed in the Archway, you report that they assigned only a mobile phone for these promotions and have no quota, apology are based that Groupon public bad detail of the tour and its recommendation is that you take the tour more expensive and request a refund by the promotion purchased... told by themselves "is What other tourists that has occurred, have done"after the hard time with MOON MAGIC TOUR, did the tour with another operator, tourism Cochiguaz.
