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

If you love the nature, if you like to admire the art of the creator then do visit Chiloe. The massive earthquake of 1965 has shaken the Chiloe but it creates a lot of wonderful scenic beauty. The national park is a must visit if you are visiting Chile. You will not find may people around so you will be... More

We went to the Chiloe National Park from Castro in a daytrip to Cucao where the entrance to the park is, there are two "Senderos" to walk. Both are pretty short, one takes you inland through the marsches and the other one takes you to the playa through the dunes. Its not too many visitors so you can enjoy nature... More

We spent a good chunk of the day exploring this park. The loop trail we went on was really nice and provided us with a great opportunity to see the rainforest. If you are in Castro, definitely visit this park.
