If you love including outdoors and hiking on your trips, this park should not be missed. There are several short hikes, appropriate for families with children. These can be accomplished in a day. Signage ( in Spanish mostly) describes nicely the evolution of sand dunes. The real gem of the park is the 20 km of wild beach on the... More

Before getting there I read an article saying how disappointing the place was. According to the numbers of others good reviews I did not take the bad points in consideration. Well we were a bit without words. Effectively the walk in the PARC has nothing extraordinary. It is indeed a pleasant forest with many vegetation. Two hours no more between... More

It's worth the drive from Castro to visit the park; however, as is often the case, it's not the best marked to find it. Be patient. The main entrance has several nice information and museum building and we did to trails. The El Tepaul Trail was an incredible experience. It's a nice walk and trail to get to the best... More

Good, easy walking, though a bit muddy -- near a good hostel and several excellent restaurants -- kayaking good; horseback riding

Erm, I mean... it was fine, but taking an hour and a half bus to get to a place that boasts two hours of hiking at most made me feel a little grumpy on the hour and a half bus back. If you've got a bit more wiggle room in your budget, you might be able to squeeze out some... More

Another must see while visiting Chiloe. Beautiful national park w terrific beaches. Lovely drive from Castro. Wished we had budgeted more time to go on a beach horse riding outing. The hikes up to Venice viewpoints are worth the effort. Park rangers were helpful.

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
