Playa El Canelo











Algarrobo's nicest beach is Playa El Canelo, in a secluded cove south of town. It's an idyllic spot of fine yellow sand, calm blue-green water, and a backdrop of pines. Though quiet most of the year, it can get crowded in January and February. Follow Avenida Santa Teresita south to Avenida El Canelo and the pine forest of Parque Canelo. Guarded parking there costs 4,000 to 5,000 pesos. Amenities: parking (fee); food and drink. Best for: swimming; surfing; sunset. - source

During our time in Chile and Argentina, we traveled by plane, taxi, private car, metro, ferry and funicular.  Yet, our ole reliable feet got in the most use!  As usual, when I travel, the best exploration is done by walking.  Can't beat it!  And it's also a great way to get into better shape.  We recorded our steps each day:

12,500
5,378
15,353
18,770
4,280
19,572
11,376
7,472
19,176
7,254
8,020
4,915
17,525
6,672
20,572
3,272
9,917

If my calculations are correct, we averaged just over six miles a day!
