fossils. Both options include all of the described activities below.

Upon arrival at the destination, take in the natural landscape and seascape surrounding you. Learn about the cove and the work of the artisanal fishermen. Cocholgue is a popular town with locals and tourists alike who want to enjoy the beach lined with the quaint boats of local fisherman. Participate in and learn about the work of the 'algueras', who cultivate, harvest, and trade the abundant algae of Chile's coastline. You will be treated to a presentation of the recycling program that keeps the ocean clean. Enjoy the typical cuisine and fresh seafood of the town. Relax on the beach, or go for some adventurous water sports. Cocholgue is a popular spot for surfers, as there are large waves crashing in on the cove year round.

After enjoying your free time, you can either learn more about the ecosystem, and the flora and fauna of the region, or explore fossils in the cove. Dating back more than 66 million years ago, these fossils from the Cretaceous Era are sure to pique your interest in paleontology. The final activity is hiking to Faro Cocholgue, a viewpoint that offers a breathtaking look over the ocean. The distance to Faro Cocholgue is 3.31 kilometers, from where you can admire the landscape, the natural surroundings, and the far-reaching Pacific!

If you wish to stay longer, the org also offers accommodation in Cocholgue for an additional price."
