Caleta Horcon was a hippy hang out many, many years ago. Now it has lost much of the hippy vibe and what remains is just a little tourist fishing town that is a bit stinky. VERY crowded on a holiday. Not really worth a visit. Further up the road are much nicer places such as Zapallar and Papudo. Keep moving... More

I have a house there since I was born and I can recommend this place for different reasons, the beach is huge and you have a place with rocks where you can do some "adventure" and arrive to a beach full of agate stones. The houses are completely separated from the "town", the commerce to be specific, so you have... More

The "bridge of dreams" is a romantic little outjut of bridge on the rocks where visitors can tie ribbons, and there is an interesting art market just next to it with local crafts. However, other than this, there are only a few real restaurants, and the rest just some food vendors. First time I saw sea lions up close to... More

Plenty of life to be found in this village. It is a destination for families and teenagers who dislike the pretensions of Zapallar up the coast and cannot afford them either. Inexpensive fish restaurants line the sandy road next to the small bay, every inch of which is packed with people. Walk to the end to take in the hippie... More

Even though it is not the cleanest place in the country, Horcon is a charming town with the boat beside the sea and many typical characters from Chilean idiosyncrasy. Worth to visit it for an hour and eating an empanada and a beer at Roty Schop looking to the sea and the people.

The inhabitans of this region come mostly from the changos indians which were fisherman. This Caleta or little fisherman village comes from this tradition, its very nice and you can eat very good and enjoy yourself. Its a very hippie environment
