There are certain places in Chile, which are definitely worth seeing. Cajon del Maipo is definitely one of them. As the matter of fact it is a canyon situated not far from the downtown of Santiago. It will take us no more than an hour to get there, and you will be stunned by the change of the scenery from the urban and modern to a natural one. Most of the Chile private guides strongly recommend tourists to visit the Maipo Canyon, and it actually attracts lots of travelers each year. The fact is that there are lots of different activities you could occupy yourself in the canyon. This place attracts different people, who are used to extreme.
You can meet there kayakers and rafters at the river bank, mountain bikers at the trails and roads, and of course horseback riders and hikers in the El Morado Natural Monument.

If you are not into hardcore and extreme, we can think of something lighter, such as soaking in one of the rural hot springs.

Latest Customer's Opinions:
A group of 6 Australians travelled up the Maipo Canyon with John Gottleib on Saturday 30 November 2009. It was a wonderful journey though really exciting mountainous country - bleak and monotonal - wih glaciers, snowy mountains, and tumbling streams.
The transport was very comfortable, and John was an interesting and knowledgeable guide. We could travel at our pace and stop when we wanted. It was an easy day trip from Santiago.
