Sightseings and tour are beautiful, road-boat-road trip is worthy. The village is very poor, a central market generates garbage and beware of any touristic restaurant - it's a shame to it food, and it's not cheap at all. Las Pinguineras is a Nature Trip -...More

Chiloe island is a very good place to stay for an eco-holiday. Nevertheless this pinguinera is a normal outdoor activity. Better check periods of sightseeing for penguins and whales as they are not stantials. The only company that make tour services has good guides.

Loved driving on the beach, lunch at the restaurant there and the whole operation being very well run. You don't get wet at all. Loved it and definitely recommend.
