An amazing culinary trip to Chile can be had in the far south of the country. About 1,200 KM away from Santiago of Chile the great Chiloé Island is located with a territory of 8,394 square km.
An area which still retains a lot of its charm thanks (or misfortune) to a lack of road access. It can only be accessed by ferry from Puerto Montt city, traveling about 40 minutes through the Chacao strait. Or a one hour and half flight to the town of Mocopulli (from Santiago).
Due to its humid and rainy climate we recommend to travel here in January or February. You can taste the summer season during your Chiloé food travel through fish & seafood courses, like “curanto en hoyo”.
Complement your Chiloé food travel, by taking pics of the colorful “palafitos”, or visiting one of the 150 wooden churches, around the island.
