Not much to do in town itself. Definitely take an excursion to the lakes and mountains!

San Antonio, Chile Did not visit port

Last stop....did not visit town itself. The Casablanca Valley Wine Tour with Santiado city tour/airport drop was very good!

Very well managed, no fuss experience. Couldn't have been any easier!
