"Arriving in Chañaral of Aceituno was like a dream." We love exploring not much known spots on the map, with authentic natural beauties. It was an incredible joy to arrive in that quiet, very nice villa with its friendly people. We loved watching the giant whales, walking around the village and chatting with the neighbors so kind. In the days we were over there we looked like members of their families. "It was certainly an amazing experience."
