We got just a taste of this large national park. The easy trail we walked is on the Pacific coast near the road from Castro. The trail winds through the marsh and peat bogs behind the dunes and into the southern beach rainforest. Much of the trail is on raised wooden walkways so the mud is minimized. We saw many... More

Recommended easy day or half day trip to do some beautiful (though easy) short walks through stunning coastal dunes (out to the Pacific Ocean) and fertile forest and wetlands. Take any bus going to Cucao (it will take about 1 hour) and the bus will drop you right at the entrance to the park. The bus will cost 1800 pesos... More

After reading great reviews of this park, my sister and I decided to visit it while in Chiloé. So glad we did! The paths were incredible, with one traversing the beach and Pacific Ocean, and another going around the dunes, plus more inland. There was hardly anyone when we visited, meaning we had virtually every path to ourselves. The facilities... More

After paying our 1,500 peso entry fee and were given a map of the park. It had lots of short walks and we figured that we could probably get round them all. We decided to walk on the Sendero el Tepual track first, which would take us into the rainforest of the Piuchen mountain range. The paths seemed to be... More

We went to Cucao and the National Park for a couple hours..... The way in was very nice bordering the lake and once we were in the National Park the couple of hours transform in almost a whole day trip. Weather was good and is so much to see!!! We enjoyed the easy walks, a nice sandwich in the park... More

Very nice national park from where you can take a boat and watch penguins if you are lucky and it is season for them! There are some restaurants on the beach too.

The Punihill Penguin colony and the Chilean National Park were near the end of 10 days of riding through Patagonia staying at local inns and dining at local restaurants. The dinner at El Gato in Peurto Varas was some of the best fish I've ever had. Lots of hills but the 10 mile grade over the Andes was a steady... More

We took both hikes--through the forest and through the dunes--plus stops at the museum and the visitor center. All of this took about 4 hours. It is a beautiful place. We had great weather. With clear views and sunshine. It looked like they were set up for these hikes to be quite wet and boggy.

I was a bit taken aback when I read the other reviews of this park as I don't think it does it justice. As others mentioned, the park has a number of hiking trails that are well marked, with boardwalks and plaques with information on fauna. The trails are relatively easy-going - 45 min to 1 hour loops, at most... More
