  • We crossed early in the ferry South of Chonchi, visiting every church, every viewpoint... all through roads in excellent State, included the dirt roads. Top in Detif eating a rich soup of mussels in el Fogón de Huinae. Stop is to see the Swans Liucura, them moving churches of Aldachildo and Ichuac... an island beautiful, visit mandatory.

  • I went with many expectations to visit this island. Get to she is very easy crossing on a ferry in Chonchi, with a road main paved in good state, with earrings and curves prominent that as advance deliveries beautiful landscapes. Quiet villages. However, my expectations were high based on the average score and comments have the lemuy Island, I expected a little more.
