We (husband, 10 year old daughter and myself) will be arriving Puerto Varas on Dec 25. We wanted to do some fly fishing and nature exploring, as well as see some of the area and the towns. We will be coming from Torres del Paine and Chalten after a ten day visit in that area. I was originally thinking about Varas for five nights and then another area for three nights. Originally I had though about going down to Cochamo/Puelo but then I read about the horseflies. So then I was wondering if they are as bad around the Huilo Huilo area? I am thinking they aren't going to be bad around Varas, will they? Should we forget any of the areas closer to the Andes and think about Chiloe, even though that was not as high on my list?
