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.

Driver and guide were friendly, Isla negra was very nice, but the stay in Pommaire should be longer (just time for lunch, no more, whould guve us half an hour to visit potery shops)
Visit of the winery was not planed I think, but it was nice
