  • Next Tenaún, San Juan is my favorite towns in Chiloé. Not only by the beautiful church of San Juan Bautista, declared 2000 as world heritage by UNESCO, but by a series of conditions that make it a very special town. Its privileged location on the banks of a channel whose tide up and down every day, leaving the Church at few meters from the water at some times of the day, or the famous chilote shipyard which built boats, makes it a place that requires a visit to learn about l You cannot appreciate rural Chiloé, that life in Castro and Ancud. To make a stop in this place, taking good advantage to the inner coastal route, it is better travel by vehicle. San Juan can be reached taking a secondary road, after a steep slope.

  • The Church is very pretty. We take visit the churches of Dalcahue, San Juan, Tenaún and Colo in a same walk. Waze we took a wrong way when we wanted to go to the village San Juan and ended up on the beach of dillaco (not even out on the maps!). They do not rise the back slope if they don't walk in a 4 x 4. Get a good map of the area before you travel. Eye that cell phone coverage is very limited. The tourist maps have errors and do not show all the roads.
