Client comments and reviews
Puyuhuapi was beautiful albeit somewhat remote. As one of the boats was out of commission we sometimes spent some time waiting to cross over to the island but the food was good, the accommodation excellent and the walks outstanding so we thought it was great. - IP (February 2014)
