  • Unique, wonderful, indescribable scenery! Difficult access, one of the most beautiful places of Santiago. Be sure to know the Spa! Is very worthwhile.

  • Best ride! Amazing place, beautiful! We did the tour with the Agency "headed to Chile"-Leonardo Guide. It was fantastic! The landscape is wonderful and our guide made the day very enjoyable! We had breakfast next to the Embalse El Yeso and the afternoon we did a barbecue in the Termas Del Plomo. It was a sensational day. Worth every penny, because the ride with this agency is well customized.

  • It is soon by car from Santiago, we spent whole day in the area, nature pure and divine, the place draws a tremendous sense of peace and wishes to explore and enjoy. If they travel by Chile, don't miss the opportunity to go through this beautiful place!
