    Lemuy island is located in the archipelago of Chiloé. Its capital lies there: Puqueldón and also Aldachildo, where you will find the Catholic Church that will be in the picture if they give me the possibility to publish it. How cute is Chile!

    Boats leave from Chochi (4 km to the South) every 15 minutes to the isla lemuy, charge $2,100 per car. The place itself takes you to the Chiloé books and stories, each village has its characteristic Church, almost people on the streets is not which also gives it a touch of mystery to the tour. To reach the destination far, Detif, (not more than 25 km) the landscape is placed more beautiful, the road is filled with curves and valleys between hills and appear very beautiful landscapes, when you think that you already saw everything, the route takes you through the part more narrow island where You can see both sides of the sea, really beautiful. Coming to Detif, they recommended us lunch at the bonfire Beach huinay. We went and it was truly a success. If this visit made it it worthwhile travel, attended by its owner offers pork, salmon, hake or King crab. At prices more than acceptable concept of stove which give them their owners brings you the usual Chiloé and makes you part of this. In summary is worth 100% visit to isla lemuy.
