  • It is a beautiful place from the boat that crosses from Chonchi. There are 3 very nice churches but the road between them is wonderful in one day clear.

  • The owner of the Lodge Huillincao insisted us that we visit Isla Lemuy, fortunately we put case. Before you go we find out the schedules of the shuttle and it struck us that leave every 15 minutes, up to 20 or 20:30 Hrs. Then leave each time approximately (better confirm) the first thing we did was go to Puqueldón where we had lunch, there had many options but we decided on the Lemuyess restaurant in calle Los racing. The offer was simple, two options, beef or pork... ja! Thus there is no as being wrong. The attention of the very nice restaurant. After luego de almorzar lunch we went to know the Yayanes Park and for very bad luck, it was closed, then we began to explore the island in order to know and photograph how much Church cross the road. Without a doubt visit churches and the road to Detif is best of Isla Lemuy. The route to Detif impresses when it sees the ocean to both sides of the road.

  • No doubt a ride that should be. A ferry is taken from Chonchi. We did the trip looking for churches, but I think that the way to Detif is the best.
