The mouth of the river is located in the commune of Hualpén 20 minutes from downtown Concepción. It is one of the most important tourist sites of the city with its black sand beach that stretches 300 meters down the coast of Pacific Ocean. The waves are a bit strong for swimming but they´re beautiful for nature lovers and the beach is great for picnicking, photography, etc. It´s also great for water sports such as kite surfing, windsurfing, surfing, etc. Near the area, there are other natural protected areas that allow you to enjoy nature without stepping too far out of the city.
This beautiful fishing village is 15 minutes from Talcahuano port, in the Bio Bio region, Chile. You can lose yourself in its famous seafood empanadas or its cheese shells (making shells are a way to prepare a decapod crustacean cooked and minced).
It is common for those who are immersed in the urban core to have a desire to leave the city, and go to a place where there is only the landscape and we the landscape and them are the protagonists. Sometimes we find it hard to find places that are free from urban labels, but there are exceptions, like this beach is in the area of Hualpen. Ramuntcho still is in its natural state, without services or homes close by, and it is only the landscape and visitors, which are crowded in summer, but spends much of the year as a lonely beach. Part of its mystery is that it does not have connectivity to allow easy access, so far there are no signs to guide you there, so having a bit of curiosity and excitement is natural. The easiest and fastest way to arrive is by car or cycling. From Conception it is around 25 minutes drive on a dirt road ... the secret is in taking the path towards the mouth, though bound to the Caleta Chome which you may find signs to on the road, but for just in case you must always take the right hand on every detour from the main road, after you reach a forest you will see a gate closed. Now leave the car parked at a bank and a fee of outdoor shows, and you should also go down a path to the right in the same sense that we come to start a walk of 10 minutes about finally reaching the expected corner, a semicircular beach ... beach Ramuntcho. This area bears some charm apart from being disconnected from urbanization, the geographical characteristics make it one of the most beautiful in the region. Fine white sand, clean, soft waves, natural setting with rocks, cliffs and abundant wildlife. Being surrounded by hills provides shade in the afternoons, located one hour early to sunbathe and enjoy every corner, fully recommended for those who enjoy photography, peaceful places or embedded in practice some sport.
The University of Concepción (UdeC) is one of the largest traditional and prestigious universities in Chili (along with the University of Chile and the Catholic University of Chile). It is one of the 25 universities that make up the Council of Rectors of Chilean Universities. It was the first of them to be located in the central-southern region of the country, and the first to be established as a private corporation. Its headquarters is located in the city of Concepción but there are two other offices in Chillán and Los Angeles.
The Bio Bio is the widest river in Chile with some parts measuring approximately 2400 meters. It borders the city of Concepción and gives its name to the region. In winter the flow is almost threatening but in the summer, it becomes likes a desert due to its completely sandy bottom. Today there are 4 bridges that cross it.
Caleta stands out as gastronomical area in the conception province. There are more than 25 bars and restaurants that specialize in seafood dishes. A beautiful place and within the reach of every pocket.
As a group, we went to take a walk in the morning to get some fresh air but we found so many other things that weren´t expected: the beautiful fauna, forest plantations, the locals, etc. A highly recommended to whet your appetite!
Lleu Lleu Lake is a lake which is almost on the southern border of the Bio Bio region, and is one of the few lakes in Chile in which does not allow the entry of motorized vessels, resulting in the pleasant purity of its waters. The area is inhabited mainly by ethnic Mapuche people, so it is a place with many cultures and traditions typical of their culture. Lake Lleu Lleu .. a very beautiful lake with a very quiet environment, where most of its inhabitants are the Mapuche people(indigenous people of Chile). It has many camp sites, and also cabins on its shores which are very good value for money.
Antuco is a town that has captivated me since childhood with its beautiful scenery and utter tranquility. It has very well maintained, typically Chilean architecture at the foot of the imposing volcano Antuco. Antuco is located in the foothills of the Andes mountains, only 60 KM from Los Angeles.
Situated in the Andes, almost 1 hour from San Carlos, San Fabian town is quite complete and tidy .. But the scenery is spectacular. To truly fall in love with the mountains we must be close to them .. The are forests and rivers that can be seen from the road. There are several campsites and cabins .. Many hiking trails ... like the one that comes ends in a lagoon in the middle of the mountains, about 5 a five hour hike but definitely worth it. I hope to go back soon.
This is one of the main parks in the area. One entry that went through the fields as well as passing by the house of the park owners, was cut off. The owners´ house now serves as a museum. Touring it is charming, it is well maintained, with lots of flora and fauna which makes him one of the most beautiful parks in this area.
It's one of the most visited resorts in the area. It's a very nice temperature in the summer and it has a long beach. The water is a bit cold but for a bit of sunbathing it's okay. You can also do various water sports or take a boat ride to nearby beaches for a small fee.

You have to drive about an hour in the direction of the Andes from the city of Los Angeles to reach the town of Antuco, which still possesses typical Chilean soul, with homes that fit in and keep the traditional architecture of the area. You can wander around the streets peacefully. Being here is to fully disconnect from the modern world and live purely.
This beach is not as popular as some of the others but it is a haven for surfers. Unsuitable for swimming due to the constant waves but pleasant for a stroll.
