Does Puro Caballo have horse shows on Sunday or Tuesday in August. We want to go there for lunch after a drive in the Casablanca region and have lunch and see the rodeo and other show. We can go either Sunday or a weekday, or Saturday if need be. Darya

There are many competing bus companies, but TurBus is quite reliable. The trip takes an hour and a half, at high degrees of safety (Chilean buses have a speed...More
