Campeonato Nacional de Rodeo

Cultural in Southern Heartland

In early April, the Campeonato Nacional de Rodeo takes place at the Medialuna Monumental de Rancagua. At night, traditional Chilean cueca dances are held and the Plaza de los Héroes hosts a market of regional foods and crafts. Make hotel reservations early if you want to stay in Rancagua at this time; otherwise, it’s an easy day trip from Santiago.
