The best beaches + Playa La Virgen

To the south of Bahía Inglesa there are amazing landscapes; cliffs, geological faults and trails with difficult access that take us to little-known beaches such as Chorrillos, Salto del Gato and Verde Vertigo. A wetland full of birds, a town with a long history like Puerto Viejo, close a tour that culminates with at least 3 hours enjoying one of the best beaches in Chile. It is a classic, not to be missed if you traveled to Caldera.

 Chorrillos Beach and  Cat jump

For many, a tour that is originally thought of as "a walk to the beach" is actually much more than that. Walking 30 minutes to see places like Playa Chorrillos and "Salto del Gato" is a gift to the senses. Changing the expectations of a simple day of "sun and beach" to take photos with history, is our goal.

Bahia Cisnes, La Salinas, Puerto Viejo

The circuit advances towards the south through landscapes that were under the sea. Fossils, geological faults, paleo-cliffs and sandstone formations surround beaches such as Bahía Cisnes, Las Salinas, Puerto Viejo and Playa Blanca. The impressive green of the Copiapó River Wetland and the multicolored collage of the "Puerto Viejo" cove are added to the landscape.
