Hosteleria San Pablo : you will still find this printed in older maps and the buildings are also still there, but the windows are broken and I also could not imagine, who would get there in order to go on vacation in the middle of nowhere. They had quite a good view of the beach and also of the ships-wreck of Desdemona : My pic was taken from above...more

Be careful when driving the dusty side-roads to San Pablo and beware there mainly of the Guanakos ! They are a smaller species of lamas and we met quite a lot of them, while driving around in the area north of Tolhuin and towards San Pablo. At one side they are quite shy, but they might panic and run into your car, so you better watch out for them...more
