This is a cool little property and is great for kayakers as it is right on the Trancura river. Kayak selection is pretty good, but one or two of the boats we reserved were rented out to others. The shared dining/social Quincho is a very cool outdoor space to get together.
We had trouble sleeping on the thin foam 'matresses' in the wagons (on plywood) and in the dorms (on wood slats). We were unable to get a good nights sleep and it hurt the body (which kinda sucked after a hard days kayak) The showers went from scalding to freezing, back and forth. The ladies working there were very helpful and did a great job of cooking and cleaning etc. (there is no swimming pool, but the fitness centre is a selection of great rivers!) The area felt safe but some food and beer went missing from the fridges.
