  • Description


    I am a constructor man, who lives a small place called RITOQUE which is a very quiet, peaceful and beautiful beach belonging to Quintero City on the Valparaiso region, about 45 minutes (40 km) from Viña del Mar/Valparaiso to the north way.

    My home is a house from wood of one floor, located about 50 meters to the beach, where you could do hiking to the hills, walk or horseback riding on the beach or to the sand dunes, trekking in our 17 km of long sand dunes, surfing in our cold water or just chilling on those moment that you needs without noise of the cars' honk, traffic or tipycal sounds from the city.

    I enjoy of the sound of waves at the beach, surfing in free time, make barbacues grill with red meat or fishes/shelfish with my friends drinking a good chilean red wine beside a bonfire at the backyard... and drinking pisco, of course!

    How to get here:

    If you're coming from Santiago de Chile to Ritoque, at the main bus station choose "Condor Bus" line, which goes to Quintero directly. After 2 and a half hour by bus, from Quintero take a taxi (there's no public buses to Ritoque) which its cost 2500 chilean pesos and takes less than 10 minutes to get to Ritoque beach!! That's it.. You're in our place!

    If you're coming from Valparaiso/Viña del Mar, take the bus to Quintero from Errazuriz Avenue (Valparaiso)/ Alvarez Avenue(Viña del Mar) on "Sol del Pacifico" bus line, in any bus stop of that avenue mentioned before. After 45 minutos by bus ride, in Quintero take the taxi from any place to Ritoque beach direction.

    Or if you're in Quintero, give me a phone call, I could go and pick you up to home.
