This is a very beautiful coastal park with decent trails infrastructure (for chile). I had heard there were Alerce trees, but they aren't in an accessible part of the park. A better bet is to go to Alerce Andino National Park, accessible with a 7km walk by public transportation from Puerto Montt or Puerto Varas. The papas rellenas sold by... More

Well worth a walk. No animals to see but lots of plants on well cared for trails. Some useful interpretation boards and mostly clean toilets. Really highlights the rural aspect to Chile and how little it's populated.

The trip we went on wasn't very good and we probably should come back when the crowd was less. having said that the views of the country side were spectular.

Beautiful and very easy too walk on boardwalks. The Tehue walk seems like an enchanted wood where you could expect fairies at any moment. Another path leads to a breathtaking beach front.

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.
