Discover Isla Negra, one of Pablo Neruda's 3 house museums in Chile, and you'll fall under its spell! And enjoy a succulent meal in the fishing village of Quintay.


  • A little-known coastline because very few tours are offered
  • A museum with an extraordinary collection, special mention his ship's prow
  • An enchanting fishing village and the best fish without a doubt!


The Pacific Ocean didn't fit on the map. There was nowhere to put it. It was so big and messy and blue that it didn't fit anywhere. That's why they left it outside my window.' DESCRIPTION: Creaking floors, low ceilings and a décor composed of ship's prows, old maps, seashells and more. Pablo Neruda is buried here alongside his wife Matilde Urrutia. We'll then drive along the beautiful coastline of central Chile and you'll discover Algarrobo, the nautical capital, famous for its many white-water sports and the world's largest outdoor swimming pool! Tunquen, a beach 2km in circumference left to its own devices, and the fishing port of Quintay, a magnificent place for diving and tasting succulent fish and seafood dishes!
