How to get here by car?

From Algarrobo take direction Mirasol, passing the beaches and the buildings San Alfonso del Mar. In the round-about of Mirasol, take direction El Yeco, then direction Tunquén.
You will pass the condominiums Campomar and San Francisco, continue another 500 m and you will find La Mirage on your left hand side.

La Mirage is situated 7 km North of Algarrobo, and 2 km from Tunquén beach.

Arriving from Santiago (and the airport) by the highway no. 68, take the exit "Algarrobo". Shortly before Algarrobo, take exit "Mirasol / Algarrobo Norte" and follow the instructions above.

In January and February it is wise to avoid going through Algarrobo, instead take the road Casablanca > Las Dichas > Tunquén (note: arriving to Tunquén you do not take the road down to the beach of Tunquén but continue direction Mirasol, passing in front of the plant nursery "Viveros de Tunquén" - we are situated at 2 km from the nursery).

Arriving from Valparaiso / Viña del Mar by the highway no. 68 you can continue to Casablanca and then take the exit "Algarrobo" as explained above.
You can also take the exit "Tunquén" (about 15 km from Valparaiso). This is a very nice road passing in front of Tunquén beach, though rather sinuous with steep climbs and descents. This road is not quicker than the road through Algarrobo as explained above (except in summer, when it is wise to avoid Algarrobo).
