Caleta Horcon, Valparaiso

(170 reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
Sometimes referred to as the "hippie hotspot" of the central coast, the sleepy town of Caleta Horcon gets its eclectic atmosphere from the local population of fishermen, artisans, and nudists. Tumbling paths lead toward the main cove, lined with rows of colorful fishing boats and artists who often set up shop on the beach selling an array of local crafts. Two other beaches sit nearby: one offers peaceful seclusion surrounded by rolling hills and the other is Chile's only official nudist beach, one hour's walk north from the main beach. Use our Valparaiso vacation trip planner to visit Caleta Horcon on your trip to Valparaiso, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • It is a very picturesque place with beautiful scenery of sea and to explore in a day. Many restaurants on the beach to taste specialties of sea for all budgets. Seabirds are almost within reach of the hand for children's enjoyment and not so young. The site is very accessible and is reachable by car or public transport without problems.

  • An interesting place visit, Cove fishing, beaches, cuisine focused on what would be expected of a fishing village. Not is all it craft or so picturesque that it characterized in its time, but manages to keep something even

  • Located in the V Region, approximately 50 km from Viña del Mar. Access easy by road of very good level. It focuses on the sea products, fish and seafood, which sometimes are prepared by fishermen themselves or their families. The cuisine is simple, but varied. It has residential and inns that they provide villagers in their homes. There is a good police and municipal guard. Place that you could categorize insurance. Recommended, if you have time and opportunity to get to know.
