    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live in a small community of fishermen and whalers. Is a town of 100 people that we dedicate all to the sea. Everyone here is a diver and knows a lot about the sea. The inhabitants are the last indigenous Changos of northern Chile. In this place you can learn about the sea and the desert. The people are very friendly and the local culture is very lively.
