This 2 bedroom house built of native materials has a stunning view of Mar Brava, a beautiful beach of 11 km. on the NW part of the Isla Grande of Chiloe'. It has an ample kitchen which is open to the Living/Dining room. It's located 4 km from the Punahuil Natural Monument where you can make tours by launch to see penguin colonies (see 'Punahuil 2011 completo' on Youtube). Humbolt penguins and Magellanic penguins use the islands for their nests. Boat tours take you around the islets to approach them so you can take pictures of the penguins, cormorants, and other sea birds and (if you're lucky) sea otters playing in the water. Blue whales travel through the area in January. Punahuil has several restaurants that offer excellent fare featuring local fish and seafood.

El Pingüino Volador is far enough from Punahuil to enjoy the peace and quiet, but close enough to be convenient to the attractions.More

About the neighborhood
Cocotue is a rural farming village overlooking Playa Brava on the road from Ancud to Punahuil. High hill beside the road offers a panoramic view across Mar Brava, an 11 km. beach on a wide bay in the northwest part of Chiloe. Looking south past Piedra Run you can see the islotes where the penguins make their nests. Locals offer homemade treats, crafts, horseback riding, etc., as a number of new enterprises have sprung up to cater to visitors. Punahuil has 5 restaurants that cater to visitors who come to see the marine animals. There is a restaurant on the north end of Mar Brava, and another 2 km south of the penguin colonies with an amazing view looking across Pumillahue bay.
Getting around
Small micro bus makes the run from Ancud to Punahuil and back 3 times a day, but a car is recommended for convenience.
