Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.

GeoCrater: I am regretfully archiving this cache since there's been no word from the owner in the month or more since the last reviewer note was posted. If you want to re-activate the cache during the next couple of months, please contact GeoCrater to see if that's possible. If the cache meets current guidelines, consideration will be given based on the circumstances surrounding the original archival.

NOTE: My preferred method of communication is through notes on the cache page in question. However, should you wish to use email - please do not select "reply". In general, a replay to the mail bot will not reach me.

Additional translation added as I support a number of countries:

Lamento archivar este caché, ya que no ha habido ninguna comunicación del propietario en el tiempo transcurrido (un mes o más) desde que se publicó la nota del revisor. Si deseas reactivar el caché durante los próximos dos meses, por favor, ponte en contacto con GeoCrater para ver si esto es posible. Si el caché cumple con las directrices en vigor, se estudiará dicha petición teniendo en cuenta las circunstancias que llevaron el archivo original.

Geocache Description:

El cache se encuentra cerca del un camino de ripio en la altura de un pequeño monte, con una vista hermosa al mar. Desde el lugar del cache se puede observar el faro en homenaje al combate de Punta gruesa.

Combate naval de Punta Gruesa,en donde la Fragata "Indenpendencia" (peruana) resulto encallada en los requerios de este sector cuando perseguia a la goleta "Covadonga" (chilena) , el 21 de mayo de 1879, en esta acción naval Perú perdió un importante blindado, mientras chile en la rada de Iquique perdia la "Esmeralda" la cual se enfrento con el "Huascar". En este lugar decidimos dejar nuestro primer cache, un recipiente azul con tapa trasparente, contiene : - 01 bolita o polca - 01 prendedor de corbata - 01 llavero para encontrarlo hay que subir un pequeño monte.
