“One of the only lodging options in Putre”
Reviewed February 27, 2008

Putre is a very small Aymara village in northern Chile, near the Parque Nacional Lauca. This is a highly recommended part of Chile to visit! The scenery is astounding, the lack of other tourists is refreshing, and wildlife spotting is top-notch: vicunas and viscachas are everywhere!

Putre is the only village to stay in to access the National Park. Lodging is very limited. My top choice to stay in Putre would be Casa Barbarita, owned by expat birding guide Barbara Knapton. Her house was not available to rent when we arrived in Putre, but we were able to see it and it's quite comfortable.

Our second choice was the Hotel Kukuli, which is one of the newer options in town. Beds were comfortable, although the portable heater they gave us wasn't powerful enough to thoroughly heat the room, so my long underwear stayed on even when inside. The beds do have thick wool blankets, though, so sleeping was warm enough.

The hotel can be a little noisy from guests in the hallway, so you may want earplugs.

The price, around US$45, was quite expensive for what you get. We bargained the price down a bit, agreeing to not have breakfast, so I can't comment on what the breakfast is like.

Hotel Kukuli was OK. If I went to Putre again, I would try to stay at Casa Barbarita. Hotel Kukuli would be my second choice again, only because it's the second best option in town.

  • Liked — Very warm blankets on the beds for cold nights
  • Disliked — Noise, too expensive
  • Stayed January 2008
