      This Hostal is pretty nice. It´s quite a steep hike to get there or down to the city - about 125 steps. The rooms were clean and they had a space heater there for us (which really came in handy). The walls were a little thin. We could hear people very clearly even though they weren´t being loud. Altogether a nice, cheery stay.

      Packed our bags, left Hotel la Serena after breakfast and headed South for Fray Jorge National Park. It took us about two hours to get to the end of the park and hike the short path in the forest. Spent some time with the Park rangers and had a home made lunch before heading back out towards the Ruta 5 for Valparaiso. Took lots of nice pictures ...
