We spent half a day at Posada. We got time to spend with the owner and his visiting son from the US, who showed us around the ranch, including the operations of the shearing area. Had some great grilled meat and wonderful time walking around the water. It was quiet and isolated and perfect for rejuvenating.

We spent two nights at Estancia Rio Verde on our way to Torres del Paine. We were the only guests for the first day and the next day there were 2 or 3 more guests. We had read about the peacefulness of this place and we found it to be relaxing and enjoyable. The rooms are very basic. In the... More

I spent one night here on my way from El Calafate to Punta Arenas. We were lucky to have beautiful sunny skies during our stay and we took advantage of the weather to take a long hike out to the fjord. The estancia itself has two guest buildings: the main building has about a dozen or so rooms as well... More

If you are looking for a remote beautiful location to escape from the crowds and rigours of modern life, this is the place for you. The hosts, a young couple looking after the ranch whilst the owners were away, were welcoming and friendly. Every effort was made to ensure we had a good stay. The room we were given at... More

This Estancia (ranch) is an authentic working sheep ranch. The rooms are basic, nothing fancy, and the bathrooms are adequite but quite small. But you come to the estancia for the experience, not the rooms. The breakfast/dinning room is cozy and charming with a big open pit where the asado is cooked and a pot belly stove with a fire....

We stayed in this Lodge on our journey to Torres del Peine for unfortunately only one night. The rooms are very nice and individualy furnished as well as the Breakfast room. The Dining Room with a great open fire makes you feel like home. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend this nice, calm Posada!

In late October 2008, I had the pleasure to visit this Posada about one hour north of Punta Arenas as part of a tour of Patagonia. This working Estancia dates to the late 1800s with many of the original working buildings in excellent condition. The windswept site lies along the Pacific Ocean with magnificent ocean and land vistas all around!... More
