Club de Campo Coya

ClubDeCoyaWhile in Rancagua, we took a little trip up to Coya and stopped by the Club de Campo for a snack. This formerly incredibly exclusive country club dates back to the 1920s. For sheer beauty, Coya is hard to beat. Located two hours south of Santiago, near Rancagua, Coya sits in the Cachapoal wine country, at the foot of some of the highes peaks in the Andes. The club has a club house, golf course, hotel, restaurant, and amazing pool! While it has fallen some from its former glory, the club is now open to the public and was a nice place to rest one afternoon.

In the restaurant, we had fresh juice: raspberry and chirimoya. Then we had desserts. I had a crepes filled with manjar (also known as dulce de leche). My mother-in-law had ice cream, 3 flavors. Little Elephant sampled everything but preferred to play on the playground and swing on the swings.

Here are a few pictures from the trip!
