Punta de Lobos

Es una playa chilena ubicada a 6 km al sur de Pichilemu y 177 km al suroeste de Rancagua, en la provincia de Cardenal Caro, región de O'Higgins. Además de la fina arena gris, su principal característica es que está rodeada por grandes acantilados que llegan hasta unos 50 metros de altura aproximadamente y sus singulares roqueríos que son frecuentados por lobos marinos; de ahí su nombre. La extensión de su playa y su ubicación la hacen apta para el baño, la pesca de orilla, además de ser un lugar ideal para la práctica del surf y kiteboarding, sobre todo en invierno. Las olas de Punta de Lobos oscilan entre los dos y tres metros de altura, y permite a los practicantes de surf escoger olas izquierdas de excelente calidad. Según la época del año, las olas oscilan entre los 8 y 10 metros de altura, en ocasiones con más altura para las expectativas de los competidores en el Big Wave World Tour (BWWT) 2012.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
