We had a blast in Chillan. We all decided we’ll be back someday.
After a few final runs on the longest piste in South America (13 km) we packed the bus and headed for the beach. Just like California, you can ski in the morning and go to the beach in the afternoon.
We cut across to Cobquecura – a quiet little beach town that seemed about right. Nearby is La Iglesia de la Piedra, which was good for a quick hike. We ended up at a campsite just north in the tiny village of Bucalemu.
