This was Pablo Neruda's preferred house sitting right at the Pacific coast. It is really impressive and well worth the detour to get to. Do get the audio tour - it is very well done and tells you everything you want to know. All in all it takes about 1h to cover the whole place. The house is filled with... More

What an amazing adventure. We drove from Valparaiso and with minimal help from any technology (google or Apple maps are almost useless) we found ourselves at this lovely place in about an hour and 45 min. We took the highway there and backroads back, as long as you are up for a very curvy road the views are AMAZING I... More

So fascinating to walk through a home once occupied by Neruda, the award winning Chilean poet and novelist. Really enjoyed the old pictures and personal memorabilia.

Interesting house and history. Narrow stairs, smallish rooms, breathtaking views. We had difficulty following the taped narrative; perhaps our fault and not theirs, but took away time from fully appreciating the facility. Well cared for, good place for history buffs to visit.

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
