This is the less visited Neruda’s house, but by far the greatest one! Don’t get me wrong, the other houses are amazing, but Isla Negra is the most special. The house is a bit far from the most touristic routes, but the trip was definitely worth the time and rustle. We hired a car and drove there from Viña del... More

This place was included in a tour we bought from Santiago including Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, the place is a nice museum and you can see Chileans and international tourists visiting this place, they have nice benches with the form of Ms Neruda where you can take some pics and it looks like if you are talking to him,...

Fascinating glimpse into Neruda's life and the collection of unique items in his home. Fantastic photo opportunities outside the property and on the adjacent beach. I believe reservations can be made in advance, which I forgot to do, so I had to wait for about two hours before being able to enter, so I went to have lunch, then came... More

Now I get why Pablo Neruda liked the place so much, it really is a joy being there, pure pleasure. You can find a lot of Neruda's related objects there. So much history and a different landscape from many places I've seen. Great view and amazing, hardworking people in Chile!

This place is amazing. I went on a tour with Touristours here. The wait was a bit long but it's a first come, first serve basis for the tour. They have a nice little gift shop as well as a cafe to sit and enjoy while you're waiting for your tour group to be called. Pablo Neruda collected and created... More

I enjoyed visiting the house very much. Parts of the house were beautiful and the view amazing! Also, he had so many collections of very different kinds, but all seemed to have a connection to the sea. The audio guide was good, and it was a good introduction to Pablo Neruda and his life too. We visited from Valparaiso and... More

Isla Negra is about 115 km from Santiago. The ride from Santiago to Isla Negra, will afford a few stunning vista's of the Pacific, along Ruta 78. I have seen a few Palaces, a few houses of high ranking government officials, and I have seen a house / apartment made by the Architect / Artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The Latter and... More

We visited Neruda's House in Isla Negra during the first week of March, 2014. We did not have to wait at all to get in and the house did not feel crowded as we toured it. We understand, though, that visitors during busier parts of the year often have long waits and need to reserve a time frame during which... More
