  • A place is of tourist, but half of the premises is closed at 11 in the morning. Newly open at noon. The craftsmanship that is sold is the same in all locations. If you visit one, have you visited all. The woven craft chilotes are sold here, but at cost of Parisian boutique (a chilote vest about $35,000). It is worthwhile for a 10-minute visit.

  • Remains a rustic tourist destination, though. Cool even in the summer, the wind is cold, so warm clothing is a handy item. Seeing is.

  • Definitely sell everything. 2-3 blocks from the main square of the city down to the waterfront. Sold fish, seafood, Ceviche, vegetables and honey ulmo, handicrafts in wool and wood, souvenirs, among others... well accessible prices. BUT 70% of the craft is Peruvian or Ecuadorian. (Is better 100% handicraft of Dalcahue, Chiloé). There is also a barn where they sell different items of clothing woven with wool chilota... so I recommend this place.
