"The entrance to Cajon del Maipo" San José de Maipo by IIGUANA

San José de Maipo Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 64 photos

This page is not about San Jose de Maipo. It is about what's beneath this small town, Cajon del Maipo. This small canyon is nothing like the Big Canyon or anything, but it has that chilean style, with beautiful lagoons and and incredible view of the Andes.
And the best of all, it's only 1-2 hours from downtown Santiago!!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Fresh air and incredible views
  • Cons:None that I can think so
  • In a nutshell:The Andes up close

    Nice start. It's kind of hot here, but I don't believe I want it that cold.
