We pulled into town and looked high and low for a hotel room, must have checked a dozen hotels, all full. Stopped by here and they had one room left at over $200, just your standard middle of the road, american hotel room. Kept looking, still no luck. Went back, room still available, thank goodness, as it was a looong way to the next town. Had a view of the ocean and could enjoy the pounding of the surf, nice. Smelled like the ocean though, not in a good way. Jellyfish all over the beach. Town was packed because it was high summer season, but not my idea of a nice beach town. Small pool in the courtyard. Nice breakfast buffet in the morning. Room would have been overpriced at half the cost, but we had since found out this was the norm in Chile.
