More often than not, we have traveled "by the seat of our pants," making decisions about where to go, what to see, on the fly. But for our first trip to Chile, we instead worked with Enchanting South America to not only make recommendations on the places that would best match our interests, but also to ensure that every last detail was taken care of. Unlike other trips when we've spent hours and hours doing research (only to find that some online representations are more accurate than others), our travel consultants and coordinators at Enchanting South America made this trip 100% effortless!
Our outing to the penguin colony on Chiloe Island was a perfect example. Our guide arrived at our hotel at the designated hour, and spent the time while driving to Chiloe and Punihuil not only telling us about the island's history and culture, but stopping along the way to point out some noteworthy sights -- from old wooden churches to the local agri-business of seaweed harvesting, to a unique species of duck along the shoreline.
His recommendation for a place to have lunch at Punihuil was exceptionally good! But nothing could have been comparable to the experience of being wheeled through the surf on something that resembled a large baggage cart to our small 18-passenger boat, then navigating the rocks and surf to see the penguin colony up close and personal.
This excursion was but one of a half-dozen others recommended and coordinated by Enchanting South America. They hit a home run every time!
