so its kitsch - and it's surrounded by 1500 appartments owned by upper class chileans - but so what - it's lots of fun sitting on a kayak paddling the world's largest outdoor pool - and if you are at san alfondo del mar midweek/off season you are pretty much guaranteed the place to yourself [as i did 05/12]
my 2 bedroom rented appartment was fully self contained and came in at less cost than i would have paid for an inner city 1 bedroom 'box' in any capital city in oz
make sure you take all your food/alcohol with you and just to make life easy organise a car to get you ther from santiago as very few local have ever heard of the place - and you can always cruise back to santiago through the valley/vinyards [thats another story]....
but the roar of the pacific as you watch the sun go down while you sip on your favourite quencher is as they say ... to die for ... i didn't die but will never forget that experience
