Con Con has been a small fishing village since it's foundation in 1542. It has grown in the past years to become a small city yet it still maintains it's small town attitude and style in most areas. There are many possibilities for practicing different sports or going on different outings. Due to it's location it has access to the whole coast, the inland agricultural sector, and the Coastal and Andes Mountains. All within a days reach or less.
La Boca beach and the Aconcagua river outlet and estuary are a short walk. The area has great surfing and other aquatic sports. There are horses for rent at the beach.
There are many restaurants in Con Con. Being a coastal town the majority of restaurants specialize in seafood. Just down the hill there are many places that serve Chilean empanadas, a favorite with the natives.
Viña del Mar is a short distance by car or bus. It´s become a very International cosmopolitan city with big shopping centers, hotels and restaurants. There are also some nice walks along the beach and coast.
Valparaiso is just beyond Viña to the south. It´s a UNESCO World heritage City with many historical buildings, nooks and crannies and museums to explore. Valparaiso is truly a fascinating city.
We are close to two major wine growing areas. The Casablanca Valley and the Aconcagua Valley. Casablanca has numerous wineries and restaurants for tasting and grommet food.
La Campaña National Park is located inland, with good hikes and climbs.
Cachagua and Zapallar are beautiful beaches just up the coast to the north.
Most people that stay here agree that those are nice places to explore but they like getting out of the bigger more crowed cities of Viña and Valparaiso and getting back to their home away here in Con Con.
The Nook rents as a Vacation Rental but can also be rented for longer term. Please inquire for prices and information.
