As far as national parks in Chile go, the easily accessible portion of this one (the south entrance) is nothing to write home about. It has some very short, tame, walking trails and the sights aren't really that compelling. Chiloe is a place to relax, eat seafood, and enjoy the ambience. If you're bored, this park might be worth a... More

Everything was wonderful the day we visited. The park was well maintained. The staff courteous and friendly even though we don't speak Spanish. Wonderful example of the local floral and fauna. Great hiking experience in Chiloe!

Nice place to get to know the island better. Easy flat trails for the uninitiated. Good facilities. If you love the island of Chiloe, you should get to see this spot.

We loved the drive along the lakes to reach this park. The park itself is great but the "hiking" trails are pretty short. I was looking forward to a long hike but it was mostly flat. It was beautiful and I would still go back but not challenging at all. The staff was great and the info center had some... More

We took a car ferry over to the Island. Spent the day sightseeing in the National Park, the coastal areas and the very fertile farm land. Had a great lunch, and returned to mainland in one day.

We spent a day at the park and the visit is great. The park employees are very nice and explain all you may find there. The nature you see is unique, a pity it is winter and we could not see any fauna... The museum of the park is self explanatory and very well set.

I arrived here from Castro and entered through the park entrance at Cucao. There was a good interpretative center and an interesting raised boardwalk trail through an ancient forest. The deserted, windswept beach had an otherworldly feel, but I was unable to enjoy this due to these nasty biting beetles (tabanos) that would relentlessly swarm me. I explored some of... More

We arrived to the entrance of the Chiloe National Park next to Cucao in our full hiking gear, where we found out that there are only 3 trails of a length of up to a couple of kilometers each (very family friendly; the difficulty level allows you to bring both your grandmother and your two-years-old along). Even combining all the... More

We visited the main area of the park in Cucao and enjoyed the excellent eco-tourism centre with descriptions of the rain forest and animals. The park has pamphlets in a number of languages and the signage on the trails is in Spanish and English. There are a number of self-guided walks including to the rugged beach with it's wild winds...
