I went some days ago with my family and friends, we arrive around 12pm, and we had to stand in line for almost 2 hours. They do not have time tickets, and you have to wait in the line, in order to not loose your place. After the waiting, you are provided with an audio guide, to start the tour,... More

This house was probably my favorite site during this trip to Chile. We drove from Santiago to Isla Negra on our way to Valparaiso. It took us about an hour to arrive. It was a cloudy saturday morning, so it wasn't crowded with tourists. We quickly got our tickets and were welcomed by a very very funny guy from staff.... More

The location is nice enough but if you want to go to this place try to do it in the off-season (not Chilean Summer) as the queues are awful.When we went the queue was 2 hours. We arrived after midday and it was a weekend, so maybe it is also better earlier or on a weekday. It would be great... More

Pablo Neruda's Isla Negra home is located on the coast west of Santiago and south of Valapariso. Although it may require some effort to visit, it would be well worth your time to do so. The whimsical architecture, Neruda collections, i.e. nautical artifacts, and windswept oceanside location will brighten your day and put a smile on your face. One CON:... More

If you love the Sea, as Neruda did, you cannot miss this visit. A house built by the Sea and dedicated to the Sea, overlooking a dramatic scenery on the Pacific Ocean. The visit to the house, is complemented with the beautiful the poet wrote there and many histories about the man, the house, and the objects in there. Unforgettable... More

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
