What You Can Expect
Depart your Santiago hotel in the morning and head towards the coast. Your first stop is in Pomaire, a small village where the locals use local clay to make a variety of dishes, pots and interesting sculptures amongst other handicrafts.
Continue to Isla Negra, a small beachside community with a pretty beach backed by fragrant pine trees. Home to Chilean Nobel Prize for Literature winner Pablo Neruda, you'll visit the museum in his former home dedicated to his life. The architecturally eccentric building houses some of his collections, including bottles, figureheads from ships, shells and various other eclectic articles.
After your visit of Pablo Neruda Museum, there will be time for lunch (additional cost) before returning to Santiago.
It started hour before schedule, I think our guide new what he was doing. We did not have wait very long in line to get to museum. Thank you. the biggest pleasure was conversation during the ride to Isla Negra. Our guide had knowledge about socialism, about Patagonia, about cosmos different religions. He was amazing. Stupid me, I forgot his name, I forgot to ask if would like to become our friend. He shared same thoughts and ideas, he had same common sense. That was so amazing that people from different part of the world can be the same. Perhaps viator can help me find that AMAZING guy
