Cabañas Caleta Gonzalo
Pumalin Park (Northern Carretera Austral, Chile)
The rustic Caleta Gonzalo cabins, overlooking the Reñihue fjord are simple and homely. A restaurant served good food, including sandwiches (fixed menu).
There are numerous well-marked trails throughout the Pumalin park, and it is usually possible to organise a boat trip to a nearby sea lion colony.
7 wooden cabins, with low ceilings, all of which are slightly different. There are two more cabins the other side of the road, with a kitchenette, for 2 or 4, only sold on a self-catering basis, for minimum of 3 nights.
A hire car is highly recommended, as there are few trails that leave from the cabins themselves. It rains 7m per year here, so is verdant for a reason!
When to go
November to March.
