The Cruz Muraña family sought to emerge and give the best possible life to their descendants, beginning the year 2001 with the construction of different types of businesses such as warehouses, restaurants and cabins.
After years of work and effort, today they are known as the only Hotel within the town of Toconao, which has the best infrastructure to meet the needs of tourists and provide them an unforgettable lodging experience.
At the end of 2008 and early 2009, the construction of 46 rooms set in a rustic style was completed, all of which were reserved by mining companies. However, in 2011 the hotel project consisting of a bungalow, rooms, swimming pool, restaurant and laundry was completed, in order to provide comfort and safety to each of its passengers. In 2013 they built a restaurant in San Pedro de Atacama, which offers various types of food on the main street of the eastern town is El Toconar food court.
The winemaking experience started from our grandparents whom made criollan wine, which is a typical wine produced since this last centuries, however they took this tradition and improved it with new techniques, producing 80 liters of wine with a new style.
Then, in mid-February 2014, a new harvest was made from which approximately 1,000 liters were obtained, a figure that considerably exceeded that of the previous year, positioning ourselves as the main vineyard in the area, by 2017 we expect to have 3,000 bottles of wine among the different varieties.
On the other hand, Wilfredo Cruz González, who is the father of this family and general manager of Empresas El Toconar, not only wanted them to enjoy a good life, but also worried that the town of Toconao could emerge through time and not be forgotten, for which he led a movement with the community for the recovery of the tourist administration of Laguna Chaxa, National Reserve of flamingos, becoming a model project for the indigenous community of Chile appearing in many congresses, inside and outside the country.
Today, this family seeks to be able to provide the highest variety of services full of experiences that satisfy all the needs of the tourist who arrives in the area and, at the same time, to promote tourism in the town of Toconao, rich in culture, legends and traditions.
