Kid-friendly South America: Isla Negra, Chile

Casa de Pablo Neruda
Avenida Poeta Neruda
Isla Negra, Chile

Reasons to venture:

  • What kid doesn't love a collection of whale bones and shipwreck remains collected by the world's coolest poet?
  • Kids loved the spitting lamas on the vineyard tours in Santa Cruz
  • The Central Market in Santiago has more sea life (granted it's on ice) than the New England Aquarium.
What's your favorite find in South America?

That's a tough one, but I'd have to say the confluence of the Azul an Futaleufu rivers down in the northern edge of Patagonie. The most stark contrast between crystal blue glacial run off and deep black volcanic rock. Most beautiful, unspoiled, powerful place I've ever seen...

My brother-in-law just went down to Patagonia for his honeymoon. We were so jealous it hurt. It is on the top twenty list for sure!
