  • We went with a group of friends, you can see dolphins, wolves penguins. they should visit it. Are two hours of travel from the serene, but is worth the penalty. do not miss it.

  • Beautiful place to visit, is far from La Serena, approx 1 hour and a half, so if you want to visit the island and see penguins and whales must arrive before 10 o'clock in the morning since Conaf Park protects and controls visits.

  • A place that you should visit, given the biodiversity that can be appreciated. Ideal visit by guided tour.
