Make sure not to miss this one - we had a few hours one morning before our flight and spent time at the Botanical Gardens. Peaceful and uncrowded - if you are looking for some time to seek solitude - this is the place! only...More

Quite a nice garden 1000 pesos to enter though you will really not spend too much time there. Lots of ducks, fish and interesting plants around the gardens.

The Japanese Gardens are very beautiful and calm. When I went there there weren't many people which was better because it allowed me to enjoy the place calmly and better chances to take pictures. There's one point in the lake that there are tubes getting...More

It's a pretty standard Japanese garden, too much traffic noise around to really enjoy it and relax. Entry is cheap so if you're into this stuff it's worth visiting.

This was bigger than I expected. I stopped in before walking to the lighthouse by the beach. It's very cheap to enter and there are fish pounds and ducks there too. Nice place to walk around for an hour or so.

I recommend visiting this place, is so peaceful and meaningful. The entrance was 1.5 dollars and totally worth it. If you like to take photos, there's a lot of great spots for outdoors pictures. They have many ducks walking freerly around the garden. Also they...More

The Japanese garden is a nice activity if you have a free hour and nothing else to do, but expect nothing extraordinary. The price is 1000 Chilean Pesos, which is okay. At the end, we felt a little underwhelmed as the details of the park...More
