Pelequen is situated approximately 70 miles (113 kilometers) south of Santiago, the country's capital.
O'Higgins is crisscrossed with things to do and see, from firmly-established, must-see spots to still-undiscovered gems. Approximately 10 miles (16 kilometers) away you'll find San Fernando. Set aside a day here to visit the Iglesia de San Francisco and Plaza de San Fernando.
Taking the time to get your tongue around some common phrases in Spanish is one of the most meaningful gestures you can pay to the locals you meet on your travels. Learning how to use a smattering of simple phrases, such as "¿Querría bailar conmigo?", which means "Would you like to dance with me?", can make your vacation all the more interesting. And, for "This gentleman will pay for everything", you can say "Este caballero pagará por todo" Don't be shy, just give it a try!
The 18th of September is the day when many people in Chile celebrate Independence Day, so keep an eye out for special events and festivities if you happen to be staying in Pelequen then.
When the time comes to put away your camera and say "Adiós", you'll have many happy memories to keep forever.
