The more interesting jaunts (two-day minimum) tackle the 'mission route' of the precordillera villages; you can trek, bike or go by 4x4....
Food served by the kilo during the day and a smoky atmosphere with loud music and a young crowd keep this cavernous place going at all...
Hang out with the locals at this unassuming eatery inside the fire station. It serves cheap Chilean mainstays in fit-for-firemen portions.
Lonely Planet review
Tucked away on an easily missed pedestrian street, this is a funky little café-cum-bar with curly ironwork chairs, sharp art and occasional live music. Happy hour runs from 8pm to 11pm.
