  • The Tried And True Way...

    Talca Transportation

    The sophisticated city of Santiago has its metro, buses, cars and taxis. The roads are paved and serviced quite well! However, there are many small towns cradled in the arms of the Andes Mountains where the roads are not paved and the best way to get around is on horseback.We encountered this trio on horseback as we were weaving our way over the...

  • Chilean Barbeque

    Talca Restaurants

    Tres Vacas opened last year near Talca. It features Chilean barbeque--or parrilladas. A brazier was brought to the table filled with beef, chicken and sausage which continued cooking while we ate. The aroma was wonderful; the meats delicious. We also had sliced tomatoes with onion, tossed salad with corn and green pepper strips, plus a basket of...

  • Siete Tazas Reserve - after the...

    Molina Favorites

    I visited the siete tazas after the earthquake and it is still interesting and a nice hour long walk around the park even if there is no water. As for the river, there is still a river running down the valley it just isn't running into the geological formation known as the "7 cups" (or "tazas" in Spanish) so agriculture that relies on this water...

    Molina Off The Beaten Path

    This is our favourite camping spot in Radal: it is a high valley, crossed by a crystal-clear stream which downstream becomes Claro river, peaceful, with a delicious flat sandy (yet firm enough to set tent's stakes) averywhere, with lots of excellent hidden camping spots, with water always handy, away from all Parque Inglés' noise, and with stunning...

  • Try the "mountaineer cuisine"

    San Clemente Restaurants

    The main appeal of the restaurants in the Alto (Upper) Vilches area, is its proximity to Altos de Lircay park, and the possibility to stop at them after a cold winter's afternoon walking the mountains, or in summer after spending the day in the river. Entering them and feeling the warm atmosphere while outside gets colder and the winter night falls...

  • Rental Car

    Llico Transportation

    A rental car is a really great way to get around especially outside of Santiago. My friends and I rented a car and off we went. The roads aren't really well sign posted unfortunately but it is pretty hard to get lost! There are buses that go to Lago Vichuquen but I think they probably take a long time and are not all that frequent. Renting a car...

  • The hotel restaurant

    Llico Restaurants

    We decided to eat all our meals at the restaurant inside the hotel we stayed at. The restaurant overlooked the sea. For breakfast we were given bread, cheese and ham accompanied with coffee or tea with hot milk. We ate fish and steak dishes also. The "pebre" was really good. Pebre is a Chilean entree that is usually served with bread and butter...

    Llico Things to Do

    Near Llico is a lake called Lago Vichuquen which is really pretty. The lake has a population of black necked swans which people like to stop and look at. The lakeside is a holiday destination that is popular but not overrun with people.
