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...

Great to see how the Chilean Gov't decided to protect this park. It is on the west side of the island, so wasn't exploited as much and there is still virgen rainforest. The Interpretive Center in Cucao is a must.

A very beautiful trail through the villages, forests and coast. Started it at 08:00 when the sun came up, went north through the village (cows, ships and horses along the way) and to the coastal trail. The winds made a little sand storms on the coast that made beautiful shapes. The sights were amazing - all green and natural. The... More

The park is very accessible and easy to explore - however, guided by Macarena, Cyril's very knowledgable and friendly wife, we had a day that was perfectly paced and included Chonchi, Castro's mercado, a local lunch stop and Cucao, putting it all in context. Highly recommend ChiloeNatural and Macarena. The park is so peaceful and serene with extraordinary flora. In... More
