Castro, Chiloé

MAR 7, 2016 – From the harbor of Puerto Montt, I directly took a bus to Chiloé, via a ferry. Jeff from the Navimag ferry came with me, and we found a CouchSurfing host, Nato, for two nights in the town of Castro. Holiday season had just ended there, but it was nice to see the town deserted, and have the stilt houses (palafitos) and wooden churches to ourselves. We also got informed about the National Parks on Chiloé, of which there are two: Parque Nacional de Chiloe and Parque Tantauco.
